Lettuce Go On a Date

You know how you get a new car, and then suddenly it seems like everyone everywhere is driving the same car, when in the past you’d barely even noticed said car?

Well that seems to be the case for making snacks with dates too.

Date siting #1

It all started innocently enough with Elizabeth’s post on date bars. They looked amazing and on my next trip to the grocery store I bought a pound of medjool dates.

Date siting #2

Then came Mary’s post two days later on making her own Larabars, and the wheels in my head continued to turn.

But How?

My motivation to get healthy began in 2008 when I started to notice how achy and old my body was feeling at the ripe old age of 29.  Getting healthy wasn’t just about losing weight and feeling better about my appearance, (although I won’t deny that vanity certainly played a role) I realized I wanted to feel good again, to feel like myself again.  To feel young again!

You: Staying Young by Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz was what kicked off my “It is Time to Get Healthy” initiative.
