day 5.

so far so good!
days 1 - 3 were probably the hardest.
i say this as if days 4 and 5 were a cakewalk.
t and i made a deal that we could have 5 black cups of joe a week,
to account for every work day.
[i know this doesn't make any sense for all my nursey friends]
i tried my hardest not to have it.
and i am proud to say,
and slightly embarrassed - hello starbucks pumpkin spice latte
1 week before i start - 
that i had one cup monday,
and half of a cup tuesday.
it was all there.
but today is a new day, and i feel great!
and i am proud to say that nobody is starving,
although t would tell you otherwise.

here is the first thing i made:


and they are in little orange halloween wrappers.
and yes, i know it's september.
so what.
i love orange,
and i love halloween.
like, L O V E.

here is how you make this delicious raw treat

almond butter cup 
1 c almond butter
1 1/2 c agave, divided
2 c coconut oil, divided
1/2 tbsp sea salt
1 c cacao nibs

mix almond butter, 1/2 c agave, 1/2 c coconut oil, and sea salt
in medium bowl; keep to side.  blend cacao nibs, remaining 1 c agave,
and remaining 1 1/2 c coconut oil in blender until smooth. spread little baby
cupcake liners out onto cookie sheet or pan.  spread 1/2 of this mixture into 
little baby cupcake cups to create a thin layer.  place in freezer for 15 min
to firm.  spread almond butter mixture over hardened cacao layer.
