10 Days Real Food Challenge Pledge

I have pledged myself to 10 days of nothing but real food.
100 Days of Realy Food, 10 Days Pledge

Now what does this entail? Well there are rules.
Real Food Rules
I will not be eating milk products either.

I will post my daily summary of foods to show that I am adhering to this pledge, and hopefully after 10 days I will be ready to do another 10, and so forth!

The hardest part will be Easter this weekend.
I am starting this pledge Tuesday April 15 and it will go until April 24, so I will keep you updated!

New Gadgets!

So we’ve added a Pin It Buttons to recipes (or will be when we have new recipes) for anyone to Pin on their Pinterest Page! Also I’ve added a cool new Print Me link which makes up a pretty recipe card 3″ x 5″ for your recipe box! Also going to start posting Nutrition Facts done like they have on foods at the store! Hopefully this will get the page looking more professional! Once I move I’ll have a lot more free time to cook and post recipes, yay!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

While I am in the process of moving and have no access to my nutrition programs, here is a delicious gluten free cookie! These are also dairy free if you use dark chocolate. I have not tried making these with an egg substitute yet, but in time I will let you know how it turns out!
Note: Just because these are gluten free does not mean they are the healthiest food on the planet! Limit your portions! This a a nut butter and sugar recipe :P
