The Nutritional Fairy

If only there was a fairy that could come along and deposit vitamins under your pillow at night, closely related to the tooth fairy. She would ensure that you were eating a balanced diet, or she would assign the tooth fairy as her hitman. But, as the obese people of North America exemplify, this is not the case.

I strive to eat healthy. I concoct all sorts of fooling devices to ensure that Marc eats healthy. I try not to go on diets (because I don’t have the self control for them.) and I try to do things in moderation. So what do you think about “Healthy Cookies?”

p31000132These cookies have everything BUT the kitchen sink. They are composed of whatever I have left after making granola. Now, I do not have a nutritional break down of these cookies, but I think the Fairy would approve.

I look forward to being able to make soup from veggies I grew. But for now, we’ll have to settle with heirloom organic lentil and rice mix from the store. Marc has a special talent with making good soups into¬† Miraculous Soups!


To encourage ourselves with our store-bought soup we reconstituted, we took a drive to check on our seedlings. Note the one with leaves. They are not mine! Mine are the ones still sleeping under the black soil. Lesley’s seeds are a couple weeks ahead of mine so it gives mine courage to poke through their new world.

7 Thoughts on “The Nutritional Fairy

  1. What is the cookie recipe? In my quest to make our lives more ‘healthful’ as well, I tried making a healthy cookie once… they ended up in the trash, needless to say. I’d be interested in these. they look appetizing. :)

    • I’ll post it soon. When I have it in front of me again. I love that you try to make your life more nutritious as well!

    I also try to live a healthy life but the temptation of chocolate and dips is to much for me. I have this draw to dips, all sorts of dips. Do you have a healthy dip that I can eat lots and lots of (with my not home grown veggies) and not feel guilty?

    Oh…. and “Welcome Little Seeds. Come out into the world so that you grow big and strong and we may eat you!”

  5. Danielle, thank you for your comments. As for healthy dips, my answer is Hummus! Chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice and a touch of salt. How can it get any healthier?
    Also, tapenade! Black olive dip. It’s very yummy.
    I’ll post recipes for both dips!
    ps) Do you dip your chocolate?

  6. The healthy cookie recipe is posted on “Recipe” page on the right side. Scroll down. We’re still figuring out a format for this page.
