Welcome to week 1 of my ‘new lifestyle’ With a total of 10 pounds lost this week… its a big change.
So with my discovery of my huge food intolerance to 210 items. I have been forced to cut out many things in my life. Its hard working on set and seeing co-workers eat snacks and foods i never had to think twice about. Now I do. I have removed gluten, sugar, and dairy from my diet (along with many other things… the internet would crash if i listed it all)
To yield 10 “Lara Bars”
- 20-30 prunes
- 1/4 cup of slivered almonds
- 1/4 cup of cranberries
- 1/8 cup of goji berries
- 1/8 cup of cashew (which i discovered this week i am allergic to)
- 1/8 cup of walnuts
- 1/8 cup of toasted white sesame seeds
I have two small pound cake pans, that i coated in a saran wrap. Then I put half of the yummi goodness in one and the other half in another
I divided each pan into 5 ‘bars’ Then packaged each up with some parchment paper and saran wrap.
It was a WINNER! They taste amazing! I love them.
Unfortunately I had half a bar and had a major sugar high for 45 minutes (and my body temperature went super high ). So all 9 bars were finished by my mom.
I can’t have sugar… or sugary ‘dried’ fruits…
