2. The Healthier Way to Eat Junk Food

3. A Success Quotation of the Month

4. Dessert Recipe

2. We try to eat healthy but let's face it. One day we could find ourselves in a fast food joint. Now here's our dilemma. What do we order so our calories and fat intake will not go haywire? Are there really some healthier choices at this type of place? Two dietitians were asked this question and here's what they have to say:

3. A Success Quotation of the Month = "This time too shall pass." It spoke volumes to me. Every difficult trial will eventually end as we continue to plow through the muck. We will eventually get to the winning side with persistence step by step, inch by inch makes it a cinch, yard by yard makes it hard. So inch your way to success." = I don't really know who said this.

4. And here’s the dessert recipe we promised you.

Fudge Without Guilt


  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/4 cup oleo
  • 1 can 14 1/2 oz of evaporated milk
  • liquid sweetener equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup nuts
  • 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs


  • a. In a saucepan, combine cocoa and milk and beat well.
  • b. To above, add the sweetener, salt and oleo.
  • c. Boil the mixture and then remove from heat.
  • d. Pour in the rest of the ingredients with the exception of 2 1/4 cups of the graham crackers.
  • e. Cool for approximately 15 minutes.
  • f. Divide the cooled mixture into 32 balls,
  • g. Roll each ball in the remaining graham crackers and chill.

This dessert will cure your craving for sweets as the combination of all the ingredients will make your mouth water in anticipation of each bite.

5. Let's laugh together at this joke even if it's not funny. Laughing will help get us healthy.
