Day 3 Vegan completed!! Overall I am feeling great… A couple of struggles here and there but I can tell that I am less bloated which means my belly is flatter which means I am HAPPY!
Breakfast: My new breakfast obsession… Oatmeal & Banana Fro yo parfait w/ sliced strawberries
Thank you to Stefanie for always posting amazing recipes with Peanut Flour! If you have some I definitely suggest you try this recipe!
Peanut Flour Chocolate Chip Dip
- 2 T. peanut flour
- 1/2 T. ground flax seeds
- 1 t. cinnamon
- 1/2 T. vegan carob chips
- 1 packet of stevia
- 1/2 C. coconut milk
- 1/8 tsp xanthan gum
Directions – These can get confusing…so follow carefully.
- Blend all the ingredients up in a blender/food processor.
- Top with more carob chips, fruit or a 3/4 of a box of cinnamon graham bunnies like I did.
- Sorry you are seeing the same picture twice – I was so excited and hungry that I took one shot and headed to the table.
These are my new obsession… Vegan Chocolate Chip who?
Another reason I had no motivation to make dinner and move straight to dessert was because I finally received my iphone in the mail!! No more blackberry… No more turning off randomly and rebooting for 25 minutes only to kill my battery and leave me phoneless.
Obsession Number 3
This will most likely take over my life… I’ve already downloaded 20 apps! Do you guys have any fun ones you would recommend? So far I have the basics – Groupon, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Weather Channel, Whole Foods, Southwest etc… But I want more! So give me some good ideas Please and thanks!
My workout was 90 minutes of Bikram Yoga. 1 month Unlimited for $15 = Obsession number 4. I have never done yoga religiously…or really at all but this is an amazing workout without feeling like a workout. Does that make sense? I burned a total of 864 calories in 90 minutes. I will take advantage of my 1 month unlimited pass and go as often as possible because it’s normally $20 a class!
Have you ever done Bikram? It was obvious I was a newbie because I was overdressed in my workout pants and t-shirt. Everyone was half-naked in bikinis, speedos and sports bras. I ended up having to take off my shirt… Very risqué of me.
I also made a little something for my Valentine Guess what I used…
Just another obsession of mine. Number 5 I believe…
Aren’t they pretty!? These aren’t Vegan and after I was done baking them I couldn’t decide if I was happy I was Vegan this week or if I was mad. Happy because I didn’t eat these (or lick the bowl or my fingers with frosting) and end up regretting it OR mad because I didn’t get to eat them (or lick the bowl or my fingers with frosting).
I guess in the end happy… I can always make them another time!
But if you’re not Vegan, feel free to make them…

Day 15: Favorite Bible Verse
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7
“Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
I am a sucker for all things love ♥
