recap on rest of day:
I had a plate of turkey pitas and strawberries later in the day with a glass of iced merrymint tea.
I had a pistachio larabar on the way to work … not bad.
And then at work I had some beans, chicken, and tomato. No pic, sorry! I worked my butt off.
Hello everyone! I woke up just before noon today, maybe earlier (I don’t remember, haha!).
I made myself a green monster (1 cup almond milk, 1 scoop Amazing Grass Amazing Meal Chocolate Infusion, lots of spinach, lots of ice, a banana, 1tbsp flax—YUM!) and got to baking:
I started up the recipe that I got off of Sweet and Natural’s site with my own little twist — I used 100% dark chocolate cacao powder and chips. I started mixing the batter, which ended up looking like this:
Poured into pans, with a little cupcake to try and make sure it’s edible 😉
Then I placed in the oven, with my own little cupcake:
They came out looking great (ignore the messy stove)!
Up close, you can see the carrot shreds!
And here is the frosting I made (in my blender, required a lot of spoon and finger licking :D):
And the finished product!
How great? The frosting was a little runny, but oh well. It tasted amazing.
And here is lunch, lol:
Wow! Pretty high in calories 😉 That is for 1/12 of the cake. I am pretty sure my little serving was maybe 1/2-3/4 of that, so I’ll just guesstimate around 300 for my cupcake. But I probably ate 100 calories of frosting. Maybe. Haha!
I also thought I’d share a picture of Rexi and Zelda. Ignore Zelda’s demon eyes!
Unfortunately after this picture was taken, Zelda peed on the dog’s bed AGAIN. I don’t know what to do about this 😦
Have a great day ladies! I am sore, so I need to figure out what I’m going to do today to be active. I may just relax seeing as how I have to work all night again!
