Brit:I modded it a little because I didn't have ALL the ingredients. These things sure kill my hunger on the spot.
sorry, I'd PM this to you if PM was an option... hopefully those new forums are comin' soon! I visit this site way too much! lol.
Cocoa Coconut Energy Snacks (Mark's Daily Apple Recipe)
1/2 cup each:
* Pecan nuts
* Hazel nuts
* Pumpkin seeds
* 3-6 dates
* 2-4 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
* Unsweetened cocoa powder
* Freshly ground coffee
* Shredded coconut
Run the nuts and pumpkin seeds in a food processor until ground into a fine flour.
Remove the nut flour and grind the dates and shredded coconut in the food processor until smooth.
Mix these ingredients together with coffee and cocoa powder according to taste.
Cocoa and Coconut Powder
Finally, add the coconut oil and mix it all together by hand. Roll the paste into small nibbly balls and sprinkle them in shredded coconut.
These snacks should be refrigerated to become firm.

A piece of frittata that I made last night:
- 12 eggs
- 4 cups of steamed broccoli (or any other vegetable)
- 1 cup of chopped ham (or any other leftover meat)
- 1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese (e.g.)
- salt & pepper
- 3 cups of whole milk
Mix everything together in a bowl and pour into a greased pie or casserole baking dish. Bake in 375 F for 45 mins.
Makes 8-12 individual servings. Super yummy! :-P

Way too much breakfast:
2 breakfast sausages from the local butcher's
Sauteed swiss chard and onions
An orange in coconut cream (canned, unsweetened) and some toasted pecans.
And lots of coffee.
I think either the sausage and greens or the orange and coconut would have done it. Fitday tells me I ate like 700 calories! Still, the last couple of days I had a hard time getting meals in, so I was really hungry.
