So last year I was reading this book.
I liked many parts of it, including kicking other people's butt. Who doesn't love to win at something, right?
I did not love that nobody local wanted to play with me. I also did not love that if you wanted to do your own diet you basically couldn't. That was the main reason nobody wanted to play with me.
I played with some people online. I got really strong and healthy and I loved it. I was eating so many vegetables and drinking so much water.
Then my mental illness tapped me on the shoulder and I fell on my ass.
Anyway, I always wanted to try this recipe. While I'm not ready to compete again, I want to see if these taste good or if they're chocolate cardboard. We shall see. I shall post again to update you on my findings!
This is directly from the book, but I was able to find it from this blog as well. No, I don't know what Udo's oil is. Please don't hurt me!
