KERF Goes Corporate

December 1, 2008

So instead of studying Organic all morning, ZestyCook and I cooked up some KERF designs!!

A logo:


And a bumper sticker!

Would you guys buy them if I figured out a way to have them made and sold? I’m not a bumper sticker person, but I’d put it on my car for a good cause :) Or maybe just my lunchbox, binder, locker, etc. :mrgreen: I hope to get some t-shirts and stuff in the works over Christmas break…more details to come!

Cory is a logo MASTERMIND!! Email him if you’re interested in one: ZestyCook at (or at

Kath. Eats.

So for lunch today I had leftover veggies from last night along with a tiny piece of salmon leftover from Karen’s sandwich on Saturday –


Plus some cottage cheese with wheatberries + pumpkin butter. SO GOOD!! This CC is actually 4% fat that the husband brought home b/c it’s on its expiration death bed. I’ve never had it before, but boy it is creamy! I don’t think it’s worth the fat upgrade to switch permanently, but it’s fun to have for a treat this time.


+ an apple –


My friend Victoria brought me a chocolate – I might have that during lab to celebrate the end!


Study time!

Wow I love the logo and bumper sticker! Such a neat idea.

I would love to do a logo for my blog. It would be really fun. :)

Are the bumper stickers the kind that can peel off and you stick it on the window?



2 Maggie December 1, 2008 at 1:40 pm

The logos are really cute!

That looks like a honeycrisp :)

Full fat dairy products are sooo good… I usually go with lowfat as a nice compromise between being too dull (skim) and really rich (full). I bet the cottage cheese was great :)


3 sharon December 1, 2008 at 1:40 pm

Cool! Yeah, I would DEFINITELY buy a bumper sticker :-)
Those are some great designs that Zesty came up with!
Lunch looks delicious!
Have a productive study session :-)


4 zestycook December 1, 2008 at 1:41 pm

Thanks for the shout out kath…. Lunch looks great! Good luck studying



5 Mel December 1, 2008 at 1:46 pm

If you want bumper stickers made, I highly recommend We’ve used them for car club stickers many times. They have great customer service!


6 Serena December 1, 2008 at 1:46 pm

Cute logos – stick a copyright symbol on them and register them to protect your IP!


7 Foodie (Fab and Delicious Food) December 1, 2008 at 1:48 pm

Wow, the logo and bumper sticker both look great! Nice job, Zesty!

Kath in Israel the most bought Cottage cheese has 9% fat! Its REALLY creamy; my ma used to give it to us all the time when we were smaller. Now we stick with the 3% or 1%. No fat-free option though!


10 Ariel December 1, 2008 at 1:55 pm

You might try and definitely copyright it- because someone WILL steal it :(
Delurking to say- LOVE your blog :)


11 coco December 1, 2008 at 2:10 pm

cool sticker!!! definitely will buy one if you sell it!
I’m such a big fan of KATH!!! hahhaa…. just reminded me to make more wheat berries!


12 Tina December 1, 2008 at 2:11 pm

So fun!!! Love them both! Maybe I should do one for Carrots N Cake!? :)


13 Andrea December 1, 2008 at 2:13 pm

14 Jen December 1, 2008 at 2:20 pm

Very cool logo!!!!


15 hk December 1, 2008 at 2:21 pm

too cute!!


16 carolinebee December 1, 2008 at 2:22 pm

kewl KERF logos!! 😀 ditto on more fat CC = yummier!


17 Biz December 1, 2008 at 2:24 pm

I am not a huge fan of bumper stickers either, but would definitely get a shirt!

I have a giveaway on my blog today – giving away my brother Charlie’s book “Why Your Last Diet Failed You” in case any of your readers are interested!


18 Runeatrepeat December 1, 2008 at 2:41 pm

I think the logo is very cute and professional too, but I’m not big on bumper stickers.


19 Sharon December 1, 2008 at 2:46 pm

Love the logo.
I’m not big on bumper stickers though, but I am sure lots of people would love them.


20 Julia (Santa Barbara Dreaming) December 1, 2008 at 2:52 pm

oooh fancy logos!
Salad looks amazing as usual :)


21 VeggieGirl December 1, 2008 at 2:56 pm

CORY IS GENIUS!!! As are you 😀


22 Layla December 1, 2008 at 3:02 pm

Mmm, I’m not sure the first logo is working for me: it immediately made me think of Special K (cereal) or Circle K (the convenience store).


23 shawna December 1, 2008 at 3:05 pm

Lovin’ the logo!

Totally off-topic: have you ever tried making your own Greek Yogurt? I’ve successfully made it two weeks in a row using 1% Milk and my crockpot! It’s fantastic and definitely easier on my budget than buying 3 containers of TJ’s Greek yogurt every week.


24 Sue December 1, 2008 at 3:07 pm

I’m not a bumper sticker person, but I love the logo!


25 K December 1, 2008 at 3:08 pm

Cute designs!!

Good luck studying :)


26 Shelby December 1, 2008 at 3:15 pm

Very cute designs!!! T-shirts would be fun =)
I love the CC, WB, and Pumpkin combo, it sounds delish!


27 Megan December 1, 2008 at 3:16 pm

Love the logo and the bumper sticker! Zesty is so awesome!

Good luck with the studying!


28 Heather McD (heather eats almond butter) December 1, 2008 at 3:25 pm

Hey Kath,
I love that the first design has “A blog devoted to healthy living” on it, but I like the actual design of the 2nd one even more. If you go with the 2nd one, I’m sure people would simply visit your site out of curiosity to see what it’s all about. If I didn’t know KERF was a healthy living blog, I would probably assume it was a website for some sort of restaurant.

Anyway, I don’t put stickers on my car, but I would definitely find a place for your sticker where people would see it – maybe on my water bottle as I always carry that around with me.

Tshirts would be great as well. I’m sure plenty of your readers would be willing to purchase one and help spread the word. I would.


29 Rose December 1, 2008 at 3:41 pm

Oooh la la! I like both logos. Cory is SO good!


30 Danielle December 1, 2008 at 3:42 pm

Oooh Kath, you’re such a celebrity :). I’d buy something for sure! An I <3 KERF tee perhaps… or maybe even a lunch bag? 😉


31 Olivia Jackson December 1, 2008 at 4:14 pm

Kath, I would LOVE a bumper sticker! Please make them :)


32 sarah m December 1, 2008 at 4:47 pm

would you mind sharing the crockpot yogurt recipe? i would love to try it. thanks!


33 Laurel December 1, 2008 at 5:35 pm

Yay on almost being done with lab! I like the sticker too, though I don’t put any on my car. Maybe on something else, or on a shirt.

Shawna, I’d love to get your Greek yogurt recipe too please.

Can someone explain how to steam vegetables? I have a metal steamer but keep burning things in it. How long do you steam for, how much water do you put in, how do you know when the veggies are done, etc.? Thanks


34 Angie December 1, 2008 at 5:44 pm

Could you provide a website button design for those of us that might want to do a review of your blog to help promote you *wink*

I keep reading about those wheatberries. I’ll have to try them soon.


35 Kath December 1, 2008 at 5:52 pm

Mel ,
Cool! I’ll check it out.

Moran ,
9%!! Wow! I bet it’s good though.

shawna ,
I don’t have a crock pot :( I have strained yogurt through papertowels, but I didn’t think it was worth it since I had had to buy yogurt first.

Angie ,
I don’t know what you mean by button :( Can you use the logo or bumper sticker, shrunk down? I dont’ know anything about design so I couldn’t whip something out.



36 shawna December 1, 2008 at 6:03 pm

Kath – you need to get a crockpot, if only for making yogurt :). You can get one for about $10 this time of year.

Here’s the recipe that I use:

I used 1% milk and did not add any powdered milk or gelatin since I strained it in a paper-towel-lined mesh colander for about an hour after it was made.

The result is about 2/3 gallon of yogurt from 1 gallon of milk. That’s a lot of yogurt for under $4.


37 shawna December 1, 2008 at 6:05 pm

BTW – I have been starting my yogurt at about 5pm at night, going to bed at 10pm and leaving it overnight until about 7am – perfect! :)


38 polly December 1, 2008 at 6:29 pm

Kath, hi!! I love the logo… the first one is awesome with the circle. Yay for fun shirts! Go Kath! (have you heard that hillshire farm commercial that says GO MEAT? We say go KAth!


39 Fancy December 1, 2008 at 6:46 pm

Use those logos on waterbottles!


40 Allison K December 1, 2008 at 6:52 pm

I know! KERF Oatmeal Bowls!!!!


41 Kath December 1, 2008 at 7:24 pm

Lol Polly :mrgreen:

You guys are awesome with the ideas! I love waterbottles and bowls. But how will I ever find someone to make them AND sell them? I’m planning to do a CafePress store soon…



42 Katelyn December 1, 2008 at 7:25 pm

The logo’s look amazing! I love the color combo’s, very fresh looking.

Your lunch also looks tasty. Enjoy your chocolate later.


43 B_Healthy December 1, 2008 at 7:37 pm

Hi! I am sorry I may have missed it, but what is the “good cause” you mentioned that you are selling the goodies for?


44 Kath December 1, 2008 at 8:07 pm

I haven’t said I was selling anything. Just thinking of possibilities and gauging interest now that I have logos.



45 Chelsea December 1, 2008 at 8:14 pm

oatmeal bowls…that’s the best idea ever!


46 B_Healthy December 1, 2008 at 8:24 pm

oh when you said “good cause” I was all like oooh wonder what charity? Because that seems like a really cool thing to do with the holidays approaching etc.


47 megan December 1, 2008 at 10:36 pm

I would totally buy both!! And definitely would buy t-shirts, too! That is so cool that you are doing this :)


48 Erin December 1, 2008 at 11:20 pm

I would boy a t-shirt definitely! Today when I was running the way home I was thinking of how I could compare my morning workout to yours and Angela’s at Oh She Glows. You’re such an inspiration, I’d love to wear KERF proud


49 julieh December 2, 2008 at 5:09 pm

I like the first logo better…and sorry about this, but I have to say that now I have “strange things are afoot at the circle K” (Keanu Reeves in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure) in my head


50 julieh December 2, 2008 at 5:11 pm

Oh, I wanted to add something else….maybe the circle can be long grains of wheat instead of just lines.
