Backpack Challenge w/ Raw 5

Friday, August 10, 2012

Back Pack Challenge

Hello, I’m so thankful that you all watched my vblog. Thank you for watching it to the end. I know it was long, but this challenge is very doable. As you drop this weight weekly, you can add the amounts you lose to your backpack, and then carry it around for 30mins or longer once a month, you can keep on adding, or you can to it each month and carry that weight. You can also create a food box. A box you can place can goods in, and carry it down to your local food bank. Think of the can drive, and do this for those who can’t afford a Thanksgiving dinner. Your local Churches does food drives as well, find out, your home church might do those as well. Add up your total pounds in weight, and donate that weight in can goods to your local food pantry. I know you all can do this. Let’s give back. Let’s give back with the pounds we lose. I say, for each pound you lose, place a can good in a box for your local food bank. You can do this monthly as well.

Now, moving on to my raw day 5 blog –I’m so thankful to be in this state of mind, and the place I am in. I did eat pretty well today. I did a repeat of my smoothie today. I had a yoohoo today, and I created a dish made from last night leftovers. I might eat a bowl of fruit later on tonight, because I haven’t had any “raw” fruits to chew today.

So, here is the 1st thing I had today. I had a yoohoo.

I had the rest of my smoothie I made yesterday.

I also created a dish for my hubby.

1 medium size potato sliced
1 cup of chicken skinless
½ cup of cheese, the man loves his cheese too.
Don’t talk about our cheese love…hehe.

Moving on to my dish- I loved this dish, and it went over well.
Last night leftovers –this dish right here image

Now, I took these leftovers, and I mixed them in with my cornbread mix. I love jiffy, it’s my sweet sub, but the way I do it it’s not as sweet, because I add garlic salt & lemon pepper and one egg to the mix.
Here is the uncooked image
Here is the cooked image I added more mushrooms and I topped it off with cheese.
Here it is on my plate, with my mixed greens. My hubby calls this my meatless meatloaf, but veggies and everything else becomes my meat sub, and so does mushrooms. Key player in this dish. DAMN I LOVE COOKING!

I love this dish, and I will have that for leftover too.
There are cheap ways to keep the body going, and if you don’t mind reinventing your leftovers, you’ll go far with this journey. I wish you all well… Keep on sparking… Spread the Spark

    I'll definitely be thinking about this challenge and will decide soon what I'm going to do. Love the idea of it. Your food is driving me nuts. Would you please come to Kansas and be my personal chef? lol It's been years since I've had food like that. emoticon emoticon

    Bless you, Lynn! I never want to carry those 78 pounds that I lost again. And I think I might go the marble route. The other, I'd have to pick up two big bags of dog food and carry them around. I can't carry those, can barely pick them up unless I was an Olympic weight lifter, LOL.

    You're doing great, and I'm proud of you. emoticon You rock!
