Personal Note from Sora
Can you believe, three months into the New Year and soon it will be Saint Patrick’s Day and National Women’s History Month. So what makes March special for meLOL-Well I found some new products that I really liked and wanted to share them with my Make Peace with Food Newsletter Readers. I just get so excitedLol when I find a product that I like that I know it’s time to share…
So the first product that I found in my local deli is called Pocky and can be found at Pocky.com.
Here is a picture of a Pocky box of biscuits.
Now Pocky sticks are just what they look like on the front of the above box. They’re biscuit sticks covered in this case with strawberry cream but Pocky sticks also come in Chocolate Banana which is banana cream covered chocolate biscuit sticks, Chocolate Cream covered biscuit sticks, Green Tea covered biscuits sticks and let’s not forget…Cookies & Cream covered Biscuit sticks. Trust me-this is one great product if you want a real nice treat…
The next product that I want to share with you is Green Giant Steamers which you can find in your local supermarket’s frozen food department and are very reasonable when it comes to calories.
So below is one of my favorites and it’s called Baby Vegetable Medley and it’s a combination of seasoned Cauliflower, sugar snap peas and baby cut carrots.
But here are 2 others (there are a lot to choose from-it just depends on what your supermarket might be carrying!)!
So whether you want a nice snack or dessert-try Pocky’s and if you want a side dish for your choice of protein for your lunchtime or dinner meal-then you can’t go wrong with Green Giant Steamers.

This month’s motivational quote:
Do not tarry.
To go forward is to move toward perfection.
Do not fear the thorns, or the sharp stones on life’s path…
Food for thought:
What thorns or sharp stones might be on your March path and what is your plan to manage them spiritually or otherwise???

Did you know that March 14th is National Potato Chip Day! History tells us that the potato chip was invented on August 24th, 1893 by a very frustrated chef-George Crum of Saratoga Springs, New York.
Our unhappy chef found himself responding to an unhappy customer (who continuously sent back his potatoes because they were too thick, soggy and bland) by slicing the spuds as thin as possible, frying them until they were crispy and liberally applying salt.
What then happened was that the customer loved them so much that they became a regular item on the hotel menu where George worked and they were called Saratoga Chips!
It was then in the 20th century that potato chips went beyond chef cooked restaurant fare and began to be mass produced for home consumption.
Flavored chips were created in the 1950’s and potato chips sales are over $15 billion dollars a year worldwide.
Today Americans consume 1.2 billion pounds of potato chips each year and it’s the nations’s favorite snack.
Who knew that the potatio chip had its own National Day.
They deserve it!LOL!
