DIY CANDY CRUSH COSTUME



This costume was awesome because it was interactive! Since the candy was applied on a magnetic board, others could "play candy crush" on the board by simply sliding the pieces :)

Supplies Needed:
Magnetic Board
Quick Dry Clay
Paint
Magnetic Roll
Paper/Holder for Dialogue
Superglue

Optional:
CC tshirt
CC socks/leg warmers
Lollipop



Sculpt the candy pieces out of clay and let them dry
over night



Cover the pieces with a coat of white paint and let dry

From there paint each piece as it is in the game, (lemons yellow, etc)



Next take your magnetic roll and cut off a piece that will fit on the bottom of your candy pieces. Peel off the back sticker and enforce a stronger hold by applying superglue! Let these dry overnight as well, before trying on the magnetic board


The night of the party, get together all of your greatest candy-wear and accessories!

PALEO PANCAKES

The Paleo Diet (aka: the caveman diet) is a great way to lose fat! However, it takes extreme discipline. The basic idea is that you can only eat something that a caveman could have eaten. For example, food that could be hunted or gathered.



This is by far my favorite paleo recipe so far, as it allows you to make a delicious breakfast that is essentially GLUTEN & DAIRY FREE !!

Ingredients:
2 eggs
1 banana
Syrup / Honey
(I prefer organic brown rice syrup)
Pan 
(I use one of the mini pans that are used to fry an egg, helps make the pancake thicker)

This will make 2-3 pancakes



Mash up the eggs and banana. I find it easiest to use a potato smasher and then whisk. I also mix in about a tablespoon of syrup. Place on preheated pan ( just under medium heat) and flip after 1-2 minutes. Top with syrup/honey as well and enjoy :)
