Using a tablespoon measuring soon, I have made 20 cookies.
It depends on how big you make your cookies
About three years ago, I developed a peanut allergy. My favourite cookie in the world was peanut butter cookies.
A while back, I came across WowButter. It is a peanut and tree nut free soy based peanut butter alternative. My middle kiddo was so upset that she could no longer enjoy peanut butter at home. To our surprise, this tastes just like peanut butter. The down side for me is that it is soy based and has palm oil.
I try to stay away from soy as it has been said that soy can be an endocrine disrupter. Palm oil … the manufacturer of WowButter claims that their palm oil is sourced sustainably from a supplier that is part of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil.
Why is palm oil bad? In some places, the cultivation of palm oil leads to deforestation. There have been reports of mass animal slaughtering as they flee the forests. Palm oil trees produce more oil than traditional oil crops and require less land.
Back to the cookies . . . The first time I made these simple three ingredient WowButter cookies, I almost cried. Happy tears. I thought I would never get to enjoy the deliciousness that is peanut butter cookies.
I am tempted to try WowButter cups. I miss my peanut butter cups but I am intimidated by melting chocolate. I once cooked it too long and ruined fudge.
Yesterday at my co-op work placement, I had the chance to attend an Insights Discovery Workshop.
Essentially a psychometric tool based on the psychology of Carl Jung, Insights Discovery helps to improve communication, reduce conflict and build relationships. Using an easy to remember four colour “energy” model, you learn your strengths and weaknesses, what you bring to to the team — and most importantly how to interact with others.
Before attending, we had to answer twenty-five questions online. Each “question” was a set of four basic, yet related statements about how you would rate yourself. You had to answer each set with one statement that was the most like you, the least like you, and then two more semi-related statements on a scale of one to five. The overview of results was eerily precise to only be twenty-five questions.
I ended up being a combination of the Earth Green, followed pretty closely by the Cool Blue energies. This would mean I am more introverted and “feeling” than analytical. This lands me in the coordinator type and I would be considered reliable and consistent.
Curious to know what you might be? Click Play Now on the Insights website to get a simple result in less than a couple of minutes. Of course, they want your group to pay for the workshop so it’s just a teaser. I don’t get anything out of you visiting and seeing what your colour type and energy would be.
We got these really cool blocks to stack according to our results to let our colleagues know our personality types. I am not a strong follower of these types of tests. Personality tests fall into the same category as horoscopes to me. Entertaining, but so vague that you mould what is written to fit you. I think that is why I was shocked by the extremely detailed results based on the limited questions. Maybe this guy was on to something! I think they are fun to complete and reflect on yourself and how you may be perceived by others. Do I think they should determine your future the way the Briggs Meyer test was used when I was a high school senior? NO!
