5 Responses to “Two Puzzles for you!”

My readers speak!!!

BrendaM      I’m going to guess yogurt for puzzle 1 and tortillas for puzzle 2.      We don’t want to eat #1 because of the modified(?!) corn starch and high fructose corn syrup, although arguments against the pasturized low fat milk, sugar, and other additives could be made.  We don’t want to eat #2 because of the bleached flour and partially hydrogenated oil. Again, I’m sure arguments against some of the leavening agents could be made, but I don’t know enough about all the ingredients to make them :oops: :?  

 Heidi   I’m guessing yogurt and crackers, and I agree with Brenda’s reasons for not wanting to eat them.

Diane      #1: sherbet      #2: saltine-like crackers. Reasons include the kinds of chemical preservative/coloring agents and the methods of processing these products. Wheat and milk would be good foods, but they’ve been stripped back and processed into less nutritious items. Ick!  

Ellajac      #1-sherbet      #2-Bisquick or something like it?      Scary, certainly. No, I’ll eat something else, thanks! :)

Julie      Hmmm…I think sherbet has egg whites in it, and saltines have no oil.      So my guess is      #1 Some kind of lowfat yogurt (Gogurt maybe? But probably not enough coloring for that)   OR pudding (but I don’t know if that would say *cultured* milk      #2 white tortillas OR some refrigerated pie crusts have leavening.   In any case, it sounds blech!

Wow!  You guys are good!  Yes, the first one was yogurt (or what the grocery store calls yogurt!).  I thought that might be a bit too easy - hence the second puzzle.  Congratulations to Ellajac!!! It was Bisquick! All of the reasons given not to eat this stuff was right on the button ....not healthy!!!   Did you know that you can make  your own Bisquick type mix yourself?  If anyone is interested, I'll post the recipe this weekend!

Have a great weekend! 


  1. I'm interested in the recipe. Please post. :-)

  2. Ugh, Cheri. I don't know how anyone could purchase those products after reading the labels, let alone ingest them or give them to their children. I refuse to buy "manmade in a lab" items which is my euphemism for those so-called "foods". It makes me shudder what people put into their bodies. I remember growing up eating Bisquick biscuits, dumplings, etc. White bread and bologna sandwiches. Eeewww!

  3. Wow, I can't believe it. :) And I think I've only bought Bisquick once, years ago, before I knew The Truth. :)

    i enjoy your blog; I read it occasionally and am encouraged by your faith.


  4. Ellajac,
    You did great! I'm glad you enjoy my blog! Hope to hear from you more often :)

  5. I will try to make a point of it. Am looking forward to learning about your *past*. :)
