Though I'm not about to give you my pound cake recipe, I will at least tell you how I made some noise for free. Yes, my darlings, some recipes are about success. Think about your ROI and establish your own sales quota, if you have one. It took me a while because I work full time. Before I launched my product, I did a lot of research. I finally release a signature baked good that I could be proud of and proceeded to "make some noise."
Tip 3 - Practice the process. When you create and stick with a process, your time and resources are managed better. In my case, I timed everything from the ingredient temperature to cooling and storage of my cake. This will help you manage your current life situation and reduce stress. Consistency is critical. Same flavor and texture every time.
Tip 4 - Establish a base price, upsell items and a goal. You're selling a product to make money so you'll need to keep track of every expense.
Tip 5 - Have a contingency plan in place. For instance, if your oven goes out, can you afford to have it repaired or replaced? Do you have an alternate place you can bake? What if you become ill? Do you have a return policy.
Frugal Home Cook's Fasting to a Healthier Lifestyle - Know When It's Time for a Diet - The 3 Day AHA or Military Diet
Don't crucify me. Support me!
Peeps, I'll still be blogging but the newer recipes are going to be a lot healthier.
This is April 1st and Day One of my 3 day fast on the AHA Diet. I did the 3 Day Diet before and lost 12 pounds. Yay for me. But then I let my cravings rule and I'm a lot "fluffier" than I want to be. I'm going to leave you the best link out there that tells you how the fast/diet works.
WebMD even reviewed it. So it's all good.
The best part about the link is that it tells you why eating specifically combined food groups work to help boost your metabolism.
You don't have to sign up or spend big bucks on the food. I got all the required foods for the 3 days for less than $20.00.
Now come on!
The foods that I had to purchase will last much longer than 3 days.
So it's what? FRUGAL! Yay
Yes, it's only for 3 days but the loss is guaranteed if you stick with it.
The best part about this site is the info on what to eat on the remaining 4 days. That's where your Frugal Home Cook comes in. Be patient though.
Multiple sites on this type of Fast/Diet state that can loose up to 40 pounds in 30 days and I'm going to try it. Look for healthier options from my future post.
Will I ever eat Fried Chicken again? Yep! Just not that often.
I'm motivated and I'd like to see my regular Peeps and my new Peeps stay connected.
Thanks for going through my changes with me.
I appreciate you all. Feel free to comment.
As always, look good, cook good and entertain in style.
