Who Are We and Why Are We Headed for Shamrock?

We met online in 2005 trying to--what else--lose weight. We've had our ups and downs along the way, but we're not where we want to be. This is our journey to get fit and healthy. We invite you to follow us as we "exercise" our way across the country--track our progress on the map to Shamrock below-- in an effort to each lose 50 pounds by the end of 2009 and adopt a healthier lifestyle along the road.

Where will we go once we reach our goals? The sky's the limit... but we're thinking Greece would be nice.

A Puree of Hope in a Fatty World

Here's the recipe for Bean Puree Cake. Don't give me that look! It's really good! I triple-dog-dare you to try it.
Any Cake Mix Bean Puree Cake
(I just recently tried the spice cake...very good)

  • pinto bean puree exchanged for same amount of oil called for in recipe (use liquid beans were cooked in to get right consistency)
  • 1 box cake mix
  • eggs as needed on box
  • water as needed on box

Substitute bean puree for all the oil. Mix and bake as usual (if using a white or vanilla cake you can do the same with navy beans, black beans for chocolate cake). Frost.

This is a recipe for using dried beans from food storage. I'm sure you could work with canned and give that a try. But we Mormons are always looking for ways to use up and rotate our beans, wheat, etc., so this is a great idea.
