30 Day Challenge

I'm starting the 100 squats a day for 30 days challenge!  I did 50 squats this morning to get ready to take on the 100 and wow do I already feel it!  So has anyone done this before?  Anyone want to join me?  It seriously only takes about 3 minutes a day.  Here is a quick video on how to squat properly.  You can totally do this!  I will update you on my progress over the next few weeks so check back!

The Holy Grail!

It's not a shock that Fettuccine Alfredo is probably one of the most fattening things you can eat.  So for years I haven't even considered it an option (not to mention all the cheese and cream - yikes!) .  But at last there is a new product that is amazing, it's mung bean fettuccine noodles.  It has amazing texture and taste (Keith had no idea we weren't eating regular pasta) and at about $4.00 a bag we got several dinners out of it.  I made it with grilled mushrooms and peas and made a cauliflower vegan Alfredo sauce that was amazing!  You can get the sauce recipe here.  So you can finally add those classic pasta dished in with no guilt!  Tonight I'm making it again with homemade pesto, sun dried tomatoes, and pine nuts. Let me know your favorite recipe.
