I Threw Away Money on My Back when I Should Have Just Went to the Chiropractor in San Jose First

My back was really stiff when I got up in the morning. We ended up getting a new bed to see if that was the problem. Ours was old but could have lasted a couple of more years. I say this because we were throwing money at fixing my back but not getting results. My dad gave me a back brace he used at work. It felt better, but it did not get better. It actually got worse, so I bought a new brace. Same thing. It got worse. I finally went to a chiropractor in San Jose to see if I could get some relief.

It turns out that the back brace was just making my muscles I needed to be stronger actually get weaker. I needed to regain strength in my back for correct spinal alignment to rid me of the pain. However, the chiropractor was able to relieve me of the bulk of the pain through spinal manipulations. Continue reading

2 hours

Ingredients

395g can sweetened condensed milk, unopened
3 bananas (1 very ripe,

8 small shortcut pastry cases (7-8cm in diameter)
120g 70% cocoa dark chocolate, roughly chopped

3. Put pastry cases on an oven tray and pour caramel mixture into cases. Set aside at room temperature or put in fridge to cool completely.

4. Meanwhile, put chocolate in a food processor or spice grinder and pulse until finely chop. Transfer to a small bowl and toss through cocoa powder.

5. Put cream in a large bowl and whip until thick. Add brown sugar, cinnamon and 6 grates of nutmeg, then fold through to create a swirling pattern.

6. Finely slice remaining bananas on an angle and squeeze over lemon juice to prevent browning.

7. Top each tartlet with banana slices and a dollop of cream. Sprinkle over extra brown sugar and chocolate mixture to serve.

Inexpensive Food Safety And Traceability Solutions Using Process And Quality Control Concepts

Why Should You Attend:

No one wants to be caught in a recall or worse, to have someone die because of their product. If you are one of those in the food supply chain that either thinks it can’t happen to you or that the federal government will excuse small farmers, think again. FDA will eventually implement control requirements for food safety similar to those they require for medical device and drug manufacturing. These requirements are focused on strong process and quality controls.

Most of the costs, lack of understanding and frustrations involved with getting on with implementing solid and effective food safety and traceability solutions can be overcome through a basic understanding of how to identify and improve processes in a manner that will be cost effective, prepare your operation for new requirements and protect you and your business.

Attend this webinar to understand the different process flow and quality control concepts you can implement to have a proper Food Safety system protecting your food supply business.

As Blue Crab Season Ends, Crab Dynasty Highlights Great Winter Seafood Options

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CRISFIELD, MD. — Every year around this time, Maryland’s famed blue crabs dig in for the winter. Even with blue crab season coming to a temporary annual end, though, seafood lovers all over the country still have plenty of great options.

With fast, reliable FedEx delivery nationwide, Crab Dynasty makes it easy to get hold of great-tasting, fresh-caught seafood from Chesapeake Bay, the Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico, and beyond. The family-owned company’s best-price guarantee ensures the greatest available value with every order, and Crab Dynasty’s selection ranges from fresh-caught flounder and other fish to prepared foods like classic Maryland crab cakes. With a huge selection of products available now at www.crabdynasty.com, seafood lovers have plenty to look forward to until the blue crabs return next spring.

“For people all around the country and the world, Maryland is almost synonymous with the delicious blue crab that many residents and others enjoy so much,” Crab Dynasty representative Patrick Reese said, “Part of the reason our Chesapeake Bay blue crabs are so delicious is that they hunker down and remain inactive throughout the winter while absorbing aquatic nutrients. The blue crab season might be coming to an end until next spring, but there are still plenty of delicious seafood options for the months to come. Options include a limited supply of blue soft shell crabs (harvested right on the premises in special tanks) as well as authentic hand-made Maryland crab cakes. We invite all seafood fans everywhere to stop by our website at www.crabdynasty.com to see just how much they have to look forward to.”

Judged “the most sought-after shellfish in the mid-Atlantic region” by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the blue crab is a widely recognized cornerstone of Maryland’s culinary culture. The crab’s Latin name, Callinectes sapidus, translates to “beautiful, savory swimmer,” a reflection of that fact that it has long been appreciated as one of the most delicious treats the sea has to offer.

Since 1978, Crab Dynasty has been one of the nation’s leading suppliers of blue hard crab and other kinds of seafood. The early days of the company saw it growing rapidly as workers hand-delivered fresh-caught seafood to restaurants and retailers in New York and Connecticut. Since then, Crab Dynasty has expanded to offer nationwide delivery from its online store at www.crabdynasty.com, while still maintaining a family-owned focus on freshness, quality, and customer service.

While the 2016 Chesapeake Bay blue crab season might be at an end, Crab Dynasty still has dozens of varieties of fresh and prepared seafood to offer. With many items now on sale, visitors to the Crab Dynasty e-commerce store can explore their seafood options and order online for convenient freshness delivered right to their front door.
