I’d seriously kill for a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie and a cold, creamy iced coffee right now. Wah. I miss tasty food!
I can’t say that I’m feeling all that much better this morning, but things have definitely settled down a bit on the intestines front. I ate dinner (and “dessert”) with no major issues and I almost slept through the entire night without an episode. Yay! Little victories, people. Chocolate chip cookies and iced coffee will be mine soon enough!
Dinner was a winner: gluten-free angel hair pasta with chunks of chicken breast and truffle oil spritz on top.
The pasta sat well, so I ate a little something sweet after dinner, which also went down with no issues: gluten-free waffle with peanut butter. Delicious! I’m so glad peanut butter and I are friends.
Feel Great Weight
One of my favorite hobbies is baking. I find it relaxing, even calming, and of course, I love the end result: warm, delicious, gooey baked goods. I know a lot of people associate baking and sweets as something that can’t be incorporated into a healthy diet, especially when you want to lose weight, but I knew that I couldn’t eliminate dessert forever, so I started to “healthify” my baking with lower-calorie and more nutritious ingredients so I could still enjoy these treats.
I used to be intimidated by baking because it’s more of an exact science than cooking, but even with simple swaps and adjustments the recipes still taste delicious. Here’s how I “healthify” my baking.
Question of the Day
Do you “healthify” your baked goods or do you think a tasty treat should be just that with full fat, sugar, and deliciousness?
