I’m excited to test my recipe limits again with a new recipe challenge for myself. It also gives me another reason to photo journal. Woo!
So here’s the run down. Challenge #1 was 5 primal recipes + 1 primal dessert. The stipulation was that after successfully following 5 meal recipes, I would earn a primal dessert recipe to attempt.
What actually happened? I successfully made the 5 recipes, much to my pride and excitement, and then chose my primal dessert. Turns out the dessert wasn’t all I dreamed it would be. I guess sugar/sugar substitute is actually pretty important to making a sweet tasting cheesecake. I found some simpler cookie recipes to try, but those didn’t turn out so nicely either because I was trying to leave out the honey. I did discover how to make primal granola! 😀 But the attempt was made. I’m fine with that. I kinda enjoyed the cheesecake, but mostly because I like the taste of cream cheese…and that’s what my cheesecake tasted like. Real recipe credit to http://www.paleospirit.com
Challenge #2 will be 10 primal recipes + 1 primal dessert. The stipulation, I will make the dessert early on, but I need to stay strict to the primal diet during the challenge…and really til July cos that’s when I plan on splurging next. Yeeeeeaaaaah! Play On Con!! So until then, I am gonna fight these mental battles with every ounce of will power in my topsy-turvy mind. I’m hoping this positive affirmation will lead to more positivity in the rest of my life. Namaste.
…okay, okay! I admit that the dessert early is for a specific reason. I’ll tell you about it when it passes. Til then, let’s just say…hmmm…what’s a good excuse? Oh! Let’s say the dessert early is because I didn’t actually successfully complete the primal dessert from challenge #1. There we go. 🙂
