Cookies for Breakfast? June 15, 2012

Cookies for Breakfast?  Why not.  I had one peanut butter cookie from last night’s stash this morning.  It’s made from Peanut Butter, eggs, and coconut, so it sounds like good protein to me!

Breakfast:

  • 1 PB cookie (see yesterday’s blog for recipes)
  • 2 egg muffins (also on yesterday’s blog)
  • Coffee and 1TB sweet cream

Walked 1 mile at the gym

Lunch:

  • 3/4 cup Bean Casserole (baked beans, kidney beans mixed with 2 TB of bbq, 1 TB mustard, 3 pieces of bacon, salt, and pepper)
  • Polar Seltzer Raspberry Lime (no sugars, no calories)
  • Carrots soaked in lemon and salt

Snack:

  • peanuts and dark chocolate chips

Dinner:

  • Balsamic Chicken and veggies (just roast chicken at 400 for 25 min. with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  I added grilled vegetables from my leftover pile and baked another 15 min.  Veggies included broccoli, red peppers, mushrooms, and tomatoes)
  • Sweet Potato Casserole

My Sweet Potato Casserole (adapted from my Granny’s very sugary recipe)

  1. Peel, chop, and boil 2 cups sweet potatoes
  2. Drain and mash with a fork
  3. Mix with 1 egg, 1/4 cup milk, salt, and 1 tsp vanilla
  4. Spread out in a casserole dish and begin topping
  5. Mix equal parts of butter, coconut palm sugar, pecans, and a little less coconut flour
  6. Spread topping over sweet pot. mix and bake at 350 for 30 min or until it begins to bubble

It’s like dessert, but not.  but kinda.

Snack:

We decided to go to yoforia, because I heard that they use stevia to sweeten some of their frozen yogurts.  Well, they were out of that kind.  My family went ahead and indulged and I decided to walk to Trader Joe’s to see if they have any sugar free healthy ice creams.  The best thing I found was a chocolate covered frozen banana.  I had a few bites of that, but the sugar content is still so high, I couldn’t have but 4 bites.

I’m just gonna have some tortilla chips and salsa and forget it.
