Just another 3fatchicks.com weblog

It’s the weekend and I made it on my first week on the program!  Yay!!  I did not do the cardio workout, but chose an outside walk instead.  It was nice weather here and it felt good to shed the winter outer coat.  Sunday was a rest day which I spent preparing food for the week and cleaning.  I did try a snack bar recipe called pumpkin coconut bar and it was a waste of my ingredients.  It’s partly my fault as I adjusted the recipe because it called for 4.5 cups of pumpkin and I didn’t want to open a new can.  Plus, I’d be the only one eating it so I didn’t want a huge pan.  Well, it turned into a waste of ingredients.  I’m learning of new ways to incorporate coconut oil into my diet, but this recipe stunk.

I’m going to experiment with lentils this week.  I found a recipe I want to try, but didn’t have a sweet potato and kale.  I didn’t feel like going to the store, so I will pick up these items on my way home from work on Monday.  It seems like an easy recipe.  Of course I will post my results later.
