Instead of the kids playing games on my phone the other day I made them each their own Pinterest boards, What Pepper Likes" and "Caden's stuff". I showed them how to add to their boards. I searched "Kid friendly recipes" and let them go to town! It was interesting to see what they picked and what they wanted to make!
We made a few of their picks last week. The best one was one that Pepper picked. A Vegan Strawberry "cheesecake". I love the name of it because a true cheesecake is neither vegan or raw but after we tasted it, it made sense because it really did have a cheesecake consistency.
Good Morning! I have so much to post, but I'll try to sum everything up nicely :)
First of all I have decided the May 13th OCB Pro Bodybuilding show is a GO!!! so I will be starting prep this week and would love to have you follow me through my journey!!! It's about 11 weeks away.
Second, I have decided to take my cake and cookie business a bit more seriously and am going to invest in some better equipment and renovate and decorate my cake workshop. I'm very excited about my little project!! I know, bodybuilding and cakes are 2 opposite ends of the spectrum, but we ARE tying to find balance right??!
This past week FLEW by combined with being out of town for the weekend I didn't plan on and preparation for meal prep Sunday. This happens when the old schedule gets out of whack... but that's life and we had a great getaway weekend!!
Since my birthday is tomorrow I spent my time in the kitchen Sunday of course, baking myself TWO cakes. I told my husband and kids I wanted them to make and decorate a cake for me for my birthday this year...
So they did just that!... well, sort of. I ended up baking the cake, I used my delicious vanilla cake recipe that I use for my decorated cakes
This past week was good all around. I got most of the things done on my long to-do list. there are always a few things left on the list at the end of each day. I am getting use to my "off-season" body since my last competition was almost 2 months ago. This year I've competed in 2 bodybuilding competitions, OCB Natural Bodybuilding Bikini Division. It's been such a journey, I look back and remember when it was just an idea and in the back of my mind never thought I'd be brave enough to do it. Here I am now having competed twice in the past year and hold a WNBF pro-card by winning 1st overall in the last show! Anyways, I will go more into that topic later, for now I'm talking meal prep and cookies.
Yesterday my husband had the kids out for half of the day at a dinosaur exhibit so I did all of our grocery shopping and some meal prep. I gave myself a limit of one hour for the prep so I would work quickly! (sometimes I get distracted with all of the Pinterest recipes and try to make a zillion different things) Though, here are some tips about food/meal prep I've picked up from the pros that WORK.
