Kretschmer Wheat Germ Eat Healthy!

Hey Neighbors!

We were recently given the opportunity to review Kretschmer Wheat Germ.  Now many of you may already know the benefits of adding wheat germ to your diet, but if you don't, let me just tell you that it is on the Mayo Clinic's top 10 list of healthy foods.  You can read more about that HERE.

After finding out how good wheat germ is for you my family wanted to try it out.  We were having sloppy joes that night, so we just sprinkled some on the sloppy joe before putting the top of the bun on.  You really could add this to almost anything.  My daughters are adding it to their smoothies and we are going to bake it into our banana bread.  You can add the Kretschmer Wheat Germ to your yogurt, cereal, pudding, you can even use it as a replacement for bread crumbs on your chicken.

From Kretschmer:
Wheat germ is one of the year’s hottest health trends because it’s a versatile addition to almost any meal. Derived from the most nutrient rich part of the wheat kernel (which is removed during the refining of whole wheat grains to white flour), wheat germ is an excellent source of nutrients including vitamin E, the B vitamins, and folic acid.

Here is one of their recipes:

Mushroom, Parmesan and Wheat Germ Turkey Burgers (
These flavorful burgers will satisfy even the red meat lovers in your family. They're filled with mushrooms, parmesan cheese, wheat germ and Dijon mustard. Cook them on the grill or in a grill pan on top of your stove.
Serves 4
1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/2 cups chopped cremini mushrooms
3/4 pound lean ground turkey*
1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
In medium skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add garlic and mushroom and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes until mushrooms are soft. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
In large bowl, mix together turkey, wheat germ, Parmesan, mustard, black pepper and cooked mushrooms. Form into 4 patties or 8 sliders. Grill on the barbecue or in a pre-heated grill pan until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil and serve immediately with all the fixings: buns, sliced tomatoes, lettuce and pickles.
*This recipe works better using lean ground turkey that is not 99 percent fat free

There are many other recipes on their site, so be sure to take a minute and check them out.  Look how easy it will be to add a healthy twist to your summer grilling.  Just add a little to your burgers and most likely no one will even be able to tell.  And it is so easy to find, just look in the cereal aisle of your local grocery store.

One neighbor will receive two coupons for a free Kretschmer's Wheat Germ.  Thanks for stopping by At the Fence, come back soon for another visit.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
