i'm back & i'm still not cooking!

my latest uncooked recipe:

chocolate orange confection

1 c sunflower seeds
1/2 c raisins
1/2 c dates (since i didn't have enough raisins in the pantry, & i think it worked better with the dates creaminess)
1/3- 1/2 c cacao powder (i made it very dark with chocolate yummm)
1 T maca (why for energy of course!)
1 T orange extract/flavor
1/2 t cinnamon powder
1/2 t vanilla extract/flavor or some seeds
1/3 c (6T) coconut oil melted
pinch salt

food process as smooth as possible
roll a scant tsp full into a small ball shaped candy and dip one side
into sprinkles. seal and refrigerate till firm.
place on a lovely candy dish sprinkle sides up,
d watch them disappear!
i hope you enjoy them as much as i did. :p

1 T raw sugar crystals (or anything like that)
1 T orange peel (dried & ground into a powder w/coffee grinder)

stir & use to dip one side of candy into

it's pretty fast to make & alot cheaper than the marbled chocolate orange whatever that takes 1-1/2 c of cacao butter $$$ holy schnikie!!! :eek:
my inspiration (but not my budget )
though i really want to taste that too. mmmm

more than 1/2 way there!

i can hardly believe it.
i began at 198.5 but probably was higher yet being i wouldn't get on a scale. i worked real hard but not smart, before i got to sp to lose weight and went down to 186 at my join date here. so my total loss today is 35.5 lbs. i have 23 more to go for my goal.

so now my dh is starting to eat my food, so i have to make more just in case he likes the taste.... he lost 3.5 since sunday. it's wednesday!
i feel like that commercial where the woman cuts out soda loses nothing -husband does and loses 12 lbs. :)
oh well, at least he is getting healthier. and he is also off my back about not losing any more weight. come to find out, his concerns were that i would lose so much he would look fat next to me. haaaaa!
he wants a repeat of last nite's taco feast for his lunch today.
have to say, it was wonderful, especially the 'refried beans' out of sunflower seeds. (recipe in raw food real world)
i made my own corn tortillas, no recipe pleased me. i will have to write down what i did before i forget- cause they were divine.

well another day fully raw for me.
i like the way this is working. :)

i think my scale is broken.

it can't be right.



7# one week.


100% raw, no cheating.

maybe it's just broken, or something.
i'm afraid to get back on now and break the spell :)

going down, finally!

i am back to losing weight! yaaay!
i am now only 1/2 # to go to meet my low weight since joining sp.
perhaps it will keep going and i won't have to shoot the scale.

i changed out the rest of my wardrobe from winter to summer clothes.
i was delited at how many were just too darn big on me. :) :) :)

then i went attic shopping for smaller sized summer clothes, and found some nice ones stashed up there. pack-ratting paid off this time.

now that i have discovered raw for myself, i will be getting rid of my 'fat-girl' clothes as i am able to. it's the first time i am not afraid of failure after success. i like the confidence. :)
