Phase 1: Day 2

Artificial sweeteners= digestive hell.

But at least I resisted Monica’s double chocolate dulce de leche cake and lots of pizza at Christian’s birthday party today.   I ate about two pounds of veggies and guacamole.  I’m too tired to post my food intake today, so instead it’s Recipe Time with Danielle at Nummy Nums.

Before my diet I made delectable 6 layer “Dream Bars” for a potluck.  They came out really, really rich but were a hit.  I’m a messy cook though– I literally thought I was retarded at one point because I kept opening up the packages of chips and graham crackers and each time they would fly across the room everywhere.  This happened about 5 times total.

Heat up one stick of butter in a large 9×13 baking tray.  Once melted, top with 1 ½ cups of graham crackers.  Add a bag of chocolate chips, a bag of butterscotch (or any other type of melt-able chips) and 1 ½ cups of sweetened coconut.  Then drizzle one can of condensed milk over it and bake for about 20 minutes on 350 or so.  Enjoy the heart attack and indigestion.

On a more healthier note, last night I made myself a delicious turkey “burger” topped with onions, tomatoes and Goddess dressing along with some grilled, seasoned turkey-wrapped asparagus.  I actually really, really liked asparagus.

God bless the George Foreman Lean Mean Fat Grilling Machine.  This whole meal took about 15 minutes.
