Lesson Learned: Baking & Dieting, do not go hand in hand.

Breakfast: The rest of my fritatta, a piece of toast, and a piece of fat free plastic cheese. POINTS: 6

I hid the plastic cheese underneath the fritatta. I was ashamed of being associated with it.

Lunch: 3 Wasa's, with tomato, chicken, avocado, lemon juice & salt and pepper. If you want a better picture, go back to my first day posting my food log. POINTS: 6

Yeahhh.. I'm probably going to recycle pictures when I have the exact same food, cause there wasn't much else I could do for this.

Snack: 1 Wasa, w/ spinach and artichoke cream cheese. POINTS: 2

Crackers & Dip. Can't go wrong.

: "pizza" made with Artisan flatbread rounds, a white sauce, baby spinach, roasted red pepper, mushrooms, roasted chicken breast, a little shredded mozzarella, asagio and red pepper flakes. delicious. POINTS: 6

I'm an avid fan of most things in miniature. Pizza is no exception. I would just prefer 10 mini pizzas.

I should leave it there really. That all isn't too bad after all. A lovely healthy day! A bit comfort-foody, but nevertheless, a good makeover of comfort foods, still natural and made from scratch … and actually… so was the rest.. it was just.. well.. oh fine. I'll tell you.

Only cause I promised not to lie.

I made these. See those few cookies in the foreground? Now see the pile of cookies, sitting by another pile of muffins in the background? yeaaahhhhhhhh.

Dessert:  4 oatmeal raisin cookies, 1 apple cinnamon muffin, tastes of batter. POINTS: 7

By the way - while not much to look at, those cookies are awesome, and made with whole wheat flour, steel cut oats, raisins, brown sugar, organic applesauce, and actually very good in regards to nutritional content. For example, each of those cookies is 74 calories. You're just not supposed to eat four of them in the same evening. The muffins I was also proud of - apple cinnamon, made with whole wheat flour, apples, applesauce, agave nectar, brown sugar, organic greek yogurt, and random other stuff like baking powder and baking soda, but yeah, again, on the whole, quite low in calories and high in healthy sugars and fruit and crap like that. ( I suck at baking in general, so these two things were something of an achievement for me).

The side of food porn no one wants you to see: Asphyxiation

  1. D'oh! It happens. I would never even make the healthy cookies, I would make the chocolate chip cookies, which are way worse for you, so...good job!

    Do you think that having to tell us everything you eat keeps you from grazing, or is that something that you've never had a problem with anyway? Eating between meals is always my downfall.

  2. Actually, I'm hit or miss with grazing - some days I just feel hungry all day and want to pick, but most of the time, I'm fine with set meals. However, having said that, so far this blog has actually made a difference. I'll go to grab a handful of nuts, or one of alyssa's treats, and be like "Really, D? You might have the points, and it might only be a LITTLE bad, but do you really want to take a picture of that and put it on your blog for the world to see?" .. and yeah.. that helps. Of course today, I was like, "whatever" and had random pepperoni slices, when as a rule, im not even into pepperoni. *shrugs*
