Hey, I didn't pick up the challenge for the past weekend, but I'm good to go and try it out this weekend instead. Worked my buns off getting house ready for renting (in time for Olympics, yea) and missed the challenge. I think the 7 herbs and spcies will be a real challenge - but here goes. It's exciting to be part of such an active group I love readying what you've been doing - way to go emoticon

Cliff jumping? That sounds adventurous! and with a waterfall slide, it must have been beautiful...

Ronda, have a great trip!

No Spark recipe, but I did view the smoothie recipes on Spark before making my own version, does that count? I have trouble "following" a recipe, as I always want to "tweak" it some way...in any case I did create a few new dishes from leftover ingredients in the Spark tradition!

Plenty of freggies, did my yoga outdoors on Sunday, and used spices with abandon, so emoticon

I did most of this. I went cliff jumping this weekend and also playing around a waterfall using it as a slide. Not too much hiking, but it was still fun!

I'll be gone for the next few days, leaving in the morning. DH's sister is coming down from Wyoming to Utah and we're going up with DH's dad, meeting in the middle where DH's brother lives. A spur of the moment trip. Having all the siblings together should be fun!

I'm still making a Spark recipe, eat my fruit & veggies (not sure if I'll be able to get in a rainbow tomorrow) cooking with spices is good today and I'm heading outside right now to work in the garden. Does packing count towards outside activity since I'll be loading the truck??

I'll talk to everybody towards the end of the week!

I've used Spark recipes, but not sure I'll get to one this weekend, now if I can drag this into next week, maybe....

I do pretty well with the 5 freggies, so that should go well, and hopefully we can get out tomorrow, we're both pretty burned out from the past 2 days activity (it's been a 4 day weekend for me!) so today is a rest day...

Every weekend I eat a rainbow diet it seems so it shouldn't be a problem. We have lots of vegetables and some fruit in our garden and if we don't we buy them. I probally wont do a reciepe though. We do always use herbs and spices so that shouldn't be a problem either. I will try and walk. Not sure when though yet. I have to drive my kids around some this weekend and I am getting ready to leave next Thursday.

count me in... I loved the "rainbow diet" from last weekend, so that part will be easy....recipe will either be zucchini bread or squash bread (both recipes from sparks....plus I just HAVE to use up some of those 2 veggies from my garden ) and my outdoor activity will either be walking, kayaking or both (depending on the weather...we've had some nasty storms the last couple of days)


Just keep swimming!

Never give up!

I can certainly do the rainbow foods and the outside activity, but i'm going camping this weekend so my cooking will keep to simple stuff.

And I forgot to mention, be sure to let us know which Spark Recipe you made and what you thought of it.

Good luck! emoticon emoticon

Everyone did good last weekend, so lets mix this one up a bit.

1) Let's eat a rainbow each day, again. Or at least 5 servings of fruit & veggies each day.

2) Make one recipe from Spark Recipes this weekend

3) Use 7 herbs & spices in your cooking each day

and 4) do one activity outside (this one seems to be easy for us, but I have to include it)

Can we do this one? I'm sure we can!!! Post and let us know you are in and what your activity is going to be then come back on Monday and tell us how you did over the weekend.
