Happy National Peanut Cluster Day!! Here’s to another calendar holiday you didn’t know you needed in your life. What’s not to love? Peanuts? Chocolate!? Give it to me! Peanut Clusters are the perfect combination of salty and sweet. The first retail peanut clusters were introduced in 1912 and were called the ‘Goo Goo Cluster’. Peanut Clusters were so popular with soldiers that they were even shipped weekly during World War II to those fighting the front lines. So, on this glorious holiday that mixes everyone's two favorite things: peanuts and chocolate - we must celebrate with a delicious recipe!

Peanut Clusters are relatively super easy to make! This can be a delectable dessert that's ready in minutes. You basically melt the chocolate, add the peanuts, stir them together, and then let them harden! Here is an exact recipe below:

SWIHA Student Blog: How Holistic Health Relates to Consumption

Posted by Kaylee Agnew on 9/23/21 4:00 PM

Holistic health is truly about caring for the "whole you" this means not just caring for your physical health through diet, exercise, and interventions if necessary, it also means caring for your mental, emotional, and spiritual health. For every individual these are going to vary in importance as well as vary in what works or does not work to help support them along their path to overall health and well-being. This is often described as "treating" the patient, client, or person as a whole- as opposed to treating them as their symptom. In terms of symptoms people often forget they spread far beyond physical ones such as experiencing a runny nose, headache, or cough. Other symptoms include those often associated with one's mental health like generalized feelings of sadness, loneliness, anxiety, etc. These can also be tied to spiritual and emotional health as well. This is why it’s so important to treat the WHOLE individual, as opposed to the symptom, because if you treat the symptom you won’t get to the root cause of the issue, you just cover it up further.
