I got the recipe here. It was very simple, with just a few ingredients: whole wheat flour, oil, salt, and water.
|The recipe makes 12 tortillas (sorry the pic is so dark)|

I was still craving something sweet, and you all have given me so many suggestions! I decided to make a version of homemade Larabars. I have a big bag of dried dates in the fridge from Sam's Club. Inspired by this version, I added chocolate :) So I put 1/2 pound of dates + 1/2 cup almonds + 1/3 cup coconut + 3 Tbsp. cocoa powder in the food processor and made some chocolatey Larabar-like balls.
I also kept eating small handfuls of pistachios whenever I'd go into the pantry. So I decided to remedy that problem by portioning out the Sam's Club-sized bag of pistachios into little single-serve cups:
My food log:
Breakfast--eggs with mushrooms, peppers, and cheese
Lunch--usual salad with chicken, sunflower seeds, feta cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette
Dinner--homemade chicken fajitas
Snacks--pistachios, date balls
Today was a rest day from running. I was supposed to do three miles, but since I ran pretty hard yesterday, I'm just going to do the three miles tomorrow. I'll do it on the dreadmill so I can try out that Garmin foot pod that I bought.
I felt so sick all morning and afternoon that I just ended up playing solitare in my pajamas all day. Not very productive. I haven't been sick in probably almost a year, so I really hope I don't get sick now. Especially since I've been eating "real" food this month.
Jerry took the boys to the mall today to see Star Wars in 3D. I was so tempted to have him bring me a Mrs. Fields cookie. I said, "I don't have to tell anyone--then it won't count!" Haha, I wish. I truly AM curious to see what the effects are from this little experiment with "real" foods, so I'm not going to sabotage it in any way.
I deliberately haven't mentioned my weight at all since the challenge started. I've been documenting it when I weigh myself, though, and I'll write about that at the end of the month. I'm not at all doing this challenge to lose weight, but I thought it would be interesting to see how my weight is effected. Pistachios, date balls, and all!
Jerry is off work tonight, so we're going to watch a movie--I think Saw V. I love scary movies!
