Today is my second day back to counting calories. I made a deal with my husband... I said that if I "cheat" at all in the next 4 days (Mon-Thur), then he could withdraw $500 from our savings account to spend however he wants. Now, being a very thrifty person, I could NEVER let that happen! ;) It has actually stopped me from bingeing today.
I made this awesome recipe on Sunday, and again today. I'm SHOCKED at how good it is!! It's hummus that really does taste (and look) like cookie dough. I ate it with pretzels, which was awesome, and then for dessert today I had it with a chocolate Vitatop. Heavenly!
I made it as follows:
1 can of chick peas, drained AND peeled (takes a little time, but worth it!)
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
6 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Blend all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor until very smooth. Then fold in the chocolate chips. (Makes 8 servings. Per serving: 139 calories, 5 grams fat, 3 grams fiber, 20 grams carbs, 4 grams protein)
back spasm. Doesn't sound like much, but it hurt like a motherfucker! So I didn't run today, and I'll see how I feel tomorrow.
I don't feel like typing out my whole food journal today, but I had 1365 calories.
