The Bachelor Pad party was cut short last night. I just continued it tonight. Same time, same shirt (hmm.. that’s weird),
same spot for my phone, same meal.
Tonight it was my reward after my treadmill run. It’s always nice to look forward to something afterwards.
Well, since I’ve had a day or so to recover from my America’s Finest City Half Marathon, I’ve come to my senses and signed up for my next race. The Silver Strand Half Marathon is in November and it’s one of the few that allow strollers. I ran it last year with the boys, but they were a lot lighter. Next week I’ll start training with the double BOB for a bit.
Okay, so I’ve been having some serious sugar cravings lately. I’m sure it’s because I’m trying to stay away from sugar (that always happens). I’ve been doing a pretty good job of figuring out ways to indulge on healthy versions of some of my favorites. I’ve done a couple more versions of the dreamy chocolate fudge from yesterday’s post. I can’t wait to share. Mmmm……. I may have a problem.
Ever since my pregnancy I’ve had a thing for frosting. Anything covered in frosting is just fabulous.
Love frosting- hate the calories, fat and sugar.
So….this past week I’ve pretty much been topping all sorts of goodies with this Creamalicious Frosting.
It makes a giant serving for about 90 calories. It’s definitely not your buttery, sugary frosting, but it does the trick.
serves 1 STUFT mama (maybe two normal eaters) and pretty much covers a giant muffin (or two)
2 tablespoons fat free cream cheese
1 tablespoon coconut flour
3 tablespoons nondairy milk (I’ve used vanilla soy milk and unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
sweetener of choice (I’ve used both Splenda and liquid stevia and they both work fine)
splash of vanilla (optional)
Mix all ingredients together in a small container if your kids are sleeping (I just use a knife) or blend together in a food processor (If the boys are up I use the Magic Bullet).
Spread to your heart’s content.
I’ve been spreading the frosting (and love) all over my Zucchini Flaxseed Muffins.
Just like a
little ginormous healthy cupcake.
Obviously I’ve eaten this a few times since I made these muffins last week. He he!
Try it. You’ll be in love.
And did you spot that oatmeal cookie in this last picture? Oh yes, I’m obsessed with those right now too.
I’m also going to be a good girl and go to bed before midnight tonight. Yay! I’m convinced getting enough sleep is going to be key to being a little more comfortable in the jeans I tried on this morning. (No, not those jeans, a different pair sitting in my drawer with tags that will be perfect for the fall.) Ha!
I think this guy could use a little frosting too (and a bath).
See you tomorrow!
