One more thing..

Ok so I am on a quest to lose some weight, gasp I went up over 145 pounds. So my Mum and I have a little challenge going on. We both want to look good for a special day in September.

Why do I gain weight? I get in a habit of skipping meals which means your metabolism shuts down.

So I have been making myself eat breakfast and my favorite is yogurt and granola, I found a healthier granola. It is from Bear Naked.

My new favorite salad dressing

In my quest to eat better, I have been eating lots of healthy salads since we got home from vacation. When we went grocery shopping I found this Kraft Light Asian Toasted Sesame dressing. It is incredibly yummy and I know that I use less than the serving size. I don't like drowning my salad in dressing and really you don't need a lot to get a lot of flavor.

s'mores bars

I just made these:


Ingredients:



  • 8 to 10 whole graham crackers
  • 1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)
  • 2/3 cup chopped peanuts

Directions:


Arrange graham crackers in a single layer in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Prepare the brownie batter according to package directions. Spread over crackers.
Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with marshmallows, chocolate chips and peanuts. Bake 5 minutes longer or until marshmallows are slightly puffed and golden brown. Cool on a wire rack before cutting.


Of course I took pictures along the way...LOL
