Ms. Thunder Bumper's Challenge #1 Measurments and Veggies

It's time for your first challenge. New Ladies or anyone who did not do this the first go round, complete THIS challenge and it's worth twenty points. That's how important measuring yourself now is. You're be so glad you did in a few months. Plus, 20 points, who would want to miss that.

The rest of you have a different challenge that has been requested. Some of you may have an easier time than others. The challenge is to find a vegetable that you don't usually use in your normal cooking (this means you may have used it before but it's not a staple or maybe you've never used it before) and find a way to incorporate it into a meal.

Have fun with this and be creative. It's so easy to get stuck in a rut when trying to be healthy. The key to making it a lifestyle change is changing things up and being flexible. If you can conquer this you'll be on your way towards achieving a life time goal.

This challenge is worth 10 points. You can receive an additional 5 points for posting the recipe with the new veggie you've discovered.

NOTE: People who have not completed the measurement challenge may receive points for both challenges if they participate in both. You have until Wednesday at midnight!


  1. You actually make it sound like this could be fun :-). Have a fabulous weekend. Blessings...Mary

  2. a new veggie huh? Let me think about this one... :)

  3. I'm all about the new veggie in my year long quest to eat all the veggies in my local grocery store! Measurements. That should be interesting. Any body remember what crazy measurements the Barbie doll was based on?

  4. I'm sure the measurements would make a real woman fall over and break in two.

  5. I went looking for veggies today and it was hard to find one that I hadn't eaten so I opted for one that I don't eat very often but like, Brussel Sprouts. I hovered over the Baby Bok Choy and the Egg Plant for a while and probably will go back for the Bok Choy too before next Wednesday. Right now my fridge is bursting at the seams, you would think I was feeding a family of 6 instead of 2.
