It was definately a 80/20 weekend for me!


  1. 80/20 is the way to go. congrats on some great fastin'. your willpower with chocolate is something ill have to work up to. :) the challenge is going great

  2. Nuthin wrong with 80/20!! A question: several times you've mentioned kumara skins. How do you prepare them? I love kumara and I miss them.

  3. Thanks rachel I'm definately getting used to fsting a little more now and it's easier. As for my willpower with chocolate hmmm sometimes I don't think I have good willpower with it and eat too much :)

    Judith, I buy the orange kumara's and poke it with a knife cook them in the microwave and once cooked let it cool a little, slice them in quarters then peel the skins off. I cook the insides for hubby and then fry the skins in butter for myself. They go all crispy and are pretty darn good! It doesn't work so well with the purple skinned kumara :(
