I was totally right about this being so much harder after Lent. If we are going to keep this blog up we may need to rename it:
Confessions of Two Moms Trying To Go Fructose Free:
Nailing it . . . except when we are failing it.
I'm not kidding. Watch for the change.
The Tiny Princess's Babysitter, Ms. Donna, has been waiting for Lent to be over so that she could make me these birthday cookies:
God Bless her.
They are Island Cookies. Chocolate Chip with pecans and coconut.
I started to rearrange them on the plate so that they would fill up the plate again and be all pretty-like, but this way you can see the damage that I did. See the hole where 5 cookies are missing?
Those missing cookies are the ones that I ate between Ms. Donna's house and the party store, which is probably about 3/4 of a mile.
But they were good. Oh so good.
If I'm going to survive this thing, I'm going to have to come up with a cookie that is made with "Hell's Yes" sweeteners. That is my quest. When I get a decent recipe figured out, you'll be the first to know.
Now, for What-I-Ate Wednesday, which is really 'What I Ate Yesterday," and I was much better yesterday than I was today.
|Scrambled egg whites and yellow peppers. |
Sauteed zuchinni, red peppers, and kale.
Half of an orange.
Lunch: It was Dallas day. My lunch was at La Duni at North Park Mall. I had the trio of salads, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that it was phenomenal.
It was so good. That you need a close-up of Salads 2 and 3:
|Salad 2: Basmati rice with grilled chicken and |
and artichoke hearts. Ridiculous.
Little Miss Landry was as sweet and yummy as my lunch.
|Shrimp and Spinach Quesadillas with|
laughing cow cheese. Quacamole and Hummus for dipping.
And you know what I had for a snack.
Questions for you:
What are your trigger foods (one is all it takes and you can't stop)?
Do you have a favorite cookie?
Have you ever experimented in the kitchen with artificial sweeteners?
