I was excited to get to host a Fast Metabolism Diet "Make and Take" MommyParties, sponsored by Random House. I was in need of a girls night and it was great to get some friends together for a night of good food and conversation. The lovely people at Crock-pot also sent me a time wise crock-pot and I love it. I use my crock-pots a lot so this will be put to good use (already has). I made the turkey chili that was listed in the book and it was delicious. I did leave out the red pepper flakes because I knew my mom would be eating this chili but it was delicious regardless. I will be making it again! I also made some sweet potato hummus and some watermelon smoothies... they were awesome! My little Hannah got to sample the hummus before I took it to the party and she just wanted to eat it with a spoon!! While I've not read the whole book yet I know it will be great and very helpful in my battle of the bulge! Four babies in 6 years sure did a number on my body! I cannot wait to get it back to "normal". While I'm in no rush for that since I fully realize it takes time, I am looking forward to finding ways to boost my metabolism and let it work for me and not against me. I really like the ideas of eating certain things on certain days and the recipes in this book are for REAL food! So that's a bonus too! Here are a few photos from our fun night!!
I was chosen as a host of the Fast Metabolism Diet "Make and Take" party and was given copies of the book, a crock-pot, and other goodies in exchange for my honest opinion and sharing all this great stuff with my friends. All opinions are my own!
