3/4 apple (cored and cubed)
1/3 cup raw old fashioned oats
~1/4 cup milk
1.5 tbsp Walden Farms Calorie Free Caramel Syrup
This comes out to about 250 cals but is really tasty, just like dessert and filling (if you don't NEED protein in the morning). Just to make it clear though, I wouldn't advertise eating so few calories in the morning. I brought my breakfast up to just over 400 calories with some bites of cheese and trail mix.
1 head broccoli (170g)
1 zucchini (160g)
1/4 cup Greek Yogurt added at end.
I steamed the whole thing up and threw it into my food processor.
It did not puree that well. I suppose some water should have gone into it?
I salted it, peppered it, even threw in some lemon juice and some mint flakes, but it didn't taste anything like BMs soup. AND it was so much thicker. What gives?
It was tasty, I'm not going to say I didn't enjoy it, but it wasn't what I had been hoping to accomplish. =(
Boyfriend's mom, if you read this, please leave a comment with the site, with me or with Boyfriend and tell me where I went wrong! More zucchini? Water? More steaming?
So, this is a short post BUT if you look around the site, you will notice that the Recipage has been really, really updated and now most of my recipes are on there. What I haven't done yet is actually MAKE an About Me or a Products page, but that's coming. Now I have a LOT more time and have every intention of doing a good job blogging.
On the exercise front, I'm now running 9 minute miles! Not consistently, but it's happening. And for some reason, I'm not feeling the need to get to 1700 calories a day (1200 net after exercise factored in). Maybe it's just the summer heat.
Coming up: Taco Night with Grilled Shrimp and Mango and tonight culinary adventure: FakeOut Shepherds Pie (Cauliflower subbed for potatoes, turkey sausage subbed for meat)
