So last week I showed you this box of goodies...
I got them from my friends at MomSelect & MommyParties.
And on Sunday I welcomed friends to my house for some taste-testing!
We tried recipes from each of the 3 Phases of the Fast Metabolism Diet.
First up was the Turkey Chili, which was a big hit with all the girls.
I made it in my new Slow Cooker from Crock Pot.
We also made 2 different smoothies and
sampled the Sweet Potato Hummus & Cucumbers.
The Hummus was a big hit with most of the guests.
I'm not sure they believed me when I said it, but it's really easy to make.
I can't wait til Phase 3 when I can eat it!
My friend Lori brought her daughter Rachel
and Rachel's friend helped us taste-test too!
L-R: Kristina, Stephanie, Shawna & Grandma Glo
also had fun tasting Fast Metabolism Diet recipes.
My friend Amy (on the right) was there too-
she doesn't always look so serious but it's the only picture I took of her.
Although we all gasped in agony at the idea that we can't have coffee, we can have tea.
So, we tried some samples from Celestial Seasonings.
We also learned that our deli meats must be nitrate-free.
The nice people at Applegate Farms sent us coupons and these lovely pins.
If you click on the link to their site above you can get a coupon too!
Katie's going to be thrilled when she gets home & finds that we have leftover pins.
She really wanted one.
I told all the ladies that I am going to try to repair my metabolism.
They are all considering joining me.
As I'm posting this I'm starting Day 2 of the program.
I really miss my gallons of diet pepsi, but I'm going to be okay with it.
When I want some, I google all the reasons why I shouldn't drink it and pour another glass of water.
If you'd like your own copy (sorry, I gave away all mine) you can order today HERE on Amazon.
