heard on the Weekend Wakeup Show on CJOB with Laurie Langcastor
yeah. It's true, I've created a recipe for healthy chocolate
muffins that have a death by chocolate flavor that any chocoholic
I dropped off a few for Laurie Langcastor, host of CJOB's
Weekend Wakeup Show, Saturday and Sunday mornings 6 to 9 am
(CJOB 680 on the AM dial or listen online at CJOB).
verdict? She loved them. You can listen to Laurie's review
on our healthy recipe segment by going to CJOB's
audio vault- Sunday January 11 - slide the media player
control to about 11 minutes in and that should take you there.
also tells all about her easy to prepare great tasting curie
recipe with vegetarian and non vegetarian variants.
to make the standard peanut butter and jam sandwich more healthy?
It's already a healthy snack but to add more vitamin E and
C, try it with sunflower seed butter (more vitamin E) and
blackcurrant jam. Blackcurrants have about 5X the vitamin
C of an orange. So much vitamin C that not all is lost during
the heat intensive jam making process.
peanut butter and jam (or sunflower seed butter) sandwich
made with blackcurrant jam will supply you with 25% of your
vitamin C for the day! Tastes great, good for you too!
those chocolate muffins..
can't (err.. I wont) give the exact recipe, but I will say
some of what they do and do not have:
added butter, margarine, or lard
Bernard Callebaut semi sweet chocolate chips contain; semisweet
chocolate (cocoa liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin,
vanilla), and may contain traces of peanuts, nuts, eggs and
milk ingredients; according to ingredients info from Callebaut
muffins do have ground flax, whole grains, dark chocolate
cocoa, and cranberries and are only 80 calories each.
ugh.. Rhino's Chocolate Madness Muffins (I just made that
up) have never failed to please, and everyone is shocked to
learn they are actually healthy - for real. CJOB's Kevin Wallace
also loved these truly great tasting chocolate muffins.
genesis of these muffins? I was tired of satisfying my love
of chocolate with fat and sugar laden high calorie crap. So
I researched baking methods and experimented with ingredients
until I found the perfect mix. The taste is rich and smooth,
and they are healthy.

our recipe showdown Laurie mentioned a crowd pleasing salad
that she brings to pot luck gatherings, rich with dark colored
berries like blackberries and blueberries. She stole my thunder;
that was to be my sprint to the finish line recipe.
my salad is also berry rich and is often the most talked about
dish at a pot luck dinner; because it tastes great, AND is
your own mix, but include these ingredients to guarantee success
at your next bring a dish event:
or red grapes (green grapes? Forgetaboutit! too low in
(use frozen and add them when you arrive; the cool temp gives
the salad a refreshing appeal
berries (you'll have to look around for these, usually
only in the summer, and most likely from a local U-pick farm)
(if possible, get organic strawberries as cultivated strawberries
are rated as having amongst the most pesticide residue of
any fruit/ produce)
berries (very high in antioxidants, but claims of super
high vitamin C have been independently shown to be about the
same as strawberries, despite widespread claims of super vitamin
C potency) - buy these at health food and bulk food stores.
If your salad has no leaf veggies in it, try a strawberry
yogurt. If you add spinach or salad in a bag mix, use a low
- drop dead easy. Berries require washing, but no chopping.
Just wash them and plunk them in a bowl. Nuts? Drop them in.
Broccoli and red pepper require a quick wash and a bit of
super antioxidant salad is made in minutes and tastes fantastic.
Sure to be a crowd pleaser, especially as there is more and
more news regarding the importance of fruit and veggie intake
for antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
