Day 18

Posted by buffmuffy on July 2, 2009

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.

108pm

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:

Nutrition Facts:

Nutrition_Facts_LabelWow!  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!
