MUFA foods

Olives and olive oil
Nuts and nut oils
Seeds and seed oils
Avocados
Chocolate (Dark)


MUFA is short for monounsaturated fat, a good fat. It is supposed to help reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol and raise HDL (good) cholesterol.

They say (right now) these foods are good for you. If you want to do a search, you can see why. As with all things, everyone does not agree.
We try to work at least one with each meal. We have a mixture of ground flaxseed, chopped walnuts and cinnamon we use on our cereal and in our cookies. I use ground flaxseed in most of my baked goods. I call my biscuits 'Southern Biscuits' because they have freckles.
Well, anyway that is why we call chocolate covered nuts, MUFA-MUFA.

Busy, Busy

I am still trying to get our online store ... uh ... online. I have it all done, but figuring postage and handling. I ordered a postal scale from USPS last Wednesday. I wanted one of theirs so I would know it would be right and it was the best deal. Have been waiting for it to come ... and wondering why it has not. I figured with $9 p/h it would be here by now. I got an email today saying they shipped it today! urghhhh You would think .... Well, I'll get it when it gets here!
I think I will make some chocolate covered nuts. One of our favorite snacks. We call it MUFA-MUFA!
