Oatmeal Fruit Bars

let me tell you how great these wholesome, fruity bars are. I originally got the recipe off the back of a Western Family Oatmeal Container, but adapted it a bit. To make these, you will need:
3/4 c. butter
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. sugar
1 c. flour
1 1/2 c. quick oats
2 c. cocunut
3/4 c. raspberry preserves or any fruit combination preserves. I used, raspberry, acai, cherry preserves.
Oven at 375. In a bowl. combine melted butter, salt and sugars. Mix well. Add 1 cup coconut and mix into batter. Add flour and oatmeal and mix. Mix dough until all combined. Grease 9 x 13 baking pan and add 1 c. of dough and press evenly around pan. Add preserves and then add remaining dough and crumble on top. Add remaining 1 c. of cocunut on top. Bake for 25 minutes and allow to cool completely. Cut into bars.

REAL Water

When i first saw a women drinking this water, I asked her about it and where she got it. I was very curious as to what real water was. I found that this is the only water with E2-Electron Energized Technology, the most advanced water out there. It is the only alkalized, anti-oxident water with stabilized negative ions.......(this came from off the water label and I have know clue what that means) As you know from my blog, anacidic body enviornment can be unhealthy, and needs to be balanced with more alkaline which is found in almost all vegetables and fruits such as apples, lemons and limes to name a few. This water label goes into great detail how it works so I will let you discover this water for yourself. I only drink this water now. It's available at healthfood stores such as Natural Grocers, Good Earth, ect. It's rather expensive, going for 2.50 for a liter bottle. I was lucky enough a box on sale.
