I got a little creative here.  I had some strawberries that were about to be too soft so I was trying to think of something I could do with mashed strawberries.  I started by mashing up some strawberries and some frozen raspberries.  I wanted something to stir into it so I made a little lemon custard by blending this together:

  • 3/4 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 T. lemon sf ff pudding powder

It was a very thick little mixture.  I plopped in on top and started by eating bites off the custard with the berries.  I ended up mixing it all in after a while though.  This would be really good with some sort of cheesecake-y like custard too!  Oh, maybe I’ll try that this week!  I’ll let you know how it goes!

Starting stats for Core4 coming up in a minute… gulp.

Here’s another little taste of my wackiness.  Let me explain my thinking behind this crazy concoction.  I was thinking about butterscotch.  Mmmm, butterscotch.  Then I remembered some cookies I used to have as a kid where you melt the peanut butter and butterscotch chips and stir in … what… cornflakes?  I can’t remember.  But, man, where those good.  Did you guys ever have those? 


Anyway, I got to thinking, I could make those cookies with Fiber 1 cereal.  Then the butterscotch would be the only downfall of the recipe.  Granted it would be totally worth it because ….  Mmmmmm, butterscotch. J  Still, I was trying to think of a way to healthify the recipe.  Then I remembered my goo!  That is how the Carmel Goo Cookies were born.


Start with the Original Carmel Goo


Stir in ½ cup Fiber 1 cereal and about 15 chocolate chips.  If you can handle the wait, which I’ve never been able to do, I bet this would harden up a little in the fridge and you could break it into little cookie pieces.  But I just eat it as is with a spoon. 


There is no butterscotch to be seen in the recipe, but it is still so yummy and so filling!


(I doubt this would pass the husband test.  I can see him taking one look at it and walking the other way.  Too weird for him.  And he hates Fiber 1.  He says it tastes like a cardboard box.  And it does.  But, remember, I like cardboard boxes.)

Ok, I know this sounds so wierd!  But will you please try it?  Pretty please?  I promise you won’t be sorry!  It is so good.  So good in fact that I’m making a double one for lunch tomorrow.  Here’s what I did:

  1. Cooked 2 egg whites in a pan sized circle and flipped when it was ready to flip.
  2. After flipping, spread 1 T. peanut butter on half the egg white circle. 
  3. Sprinkle 15 chocolate chips on the peanut butter.
  4. Sprinkle 1/2 packet of Truvia on the peanut butter (this step made my day)
  5. Fold the omlet in half and flip again to warm through.


I promise you’ll love it if you try it.  There’s only one catch.  When you try it and when you love it, you have to get back on here and leave a comment.  Just so that I know people don’t think I’m wierd.  🙂

PS.  That chocolatey goodness only has 170 calories.  Yeah.  Seriously.

Oh, and here’s the Easter family picture I promised you:



In my world today:

We’re getting Aubrey’s helmet fitted today. 😦  I feel anxious about it and I don’t really know why.  They said the fitting takes an hour.  What the?!  What about it could possibly take an hour?  I guess I’ll find out in about 5 minutes as I’m about to leave right now.  I worked out this morning and cleaned up our basement which previously looked like a hurricane passed through.  I still have tons of computer work to do but, sigh, that’ll have to wait until after the kids go to bed, I guess.  On a good note, who’s excited for the Biggest Loser makeover episode tonight?!?!  I know I am! 

I’ll post some pictures of the lovely helmet in the next couple of days.

The Original Carmel Goo

Here’s a wacky one for today.  I am in love with this stuff.  I want to marry it.  It can be eaten straight out of the bowl (this is how i love it) or used as a frosting on a healthy “cake” or muffin.  (I will feature many healthy “cakes” in time).  Here’s the recipe:


1 T. natural peanut butter

1 T. low fat cream cheese


Microwave these two for about 10 seconds just to soften, then stir together.




½ T. Carmel DaVinci Sugar Free syrups (got at Wal Mart for a few bucks by the coffees – these are also great in shakes!)

½ scoop vanilla protein powder

Splenda to taste


Stir all that yummy goodness together and you have … Carmel Goo!  All that for only 200 calories!  What do you all think?


In my world today:

I stepped on the scale this morning and guess what was staring back up at me?  My good old pre pregnancy weight!  I’m so excited!  My measurements still have a little bit to go but I’m getting there!  I’m so excited!  It took me about 15-18 months to lose it with my first two and my baby’s only 6 months old!  I’ve learned that I can’t restrict myself too much when it comes to food.  I feel best eating healthy food and that’s what I choose to eat but I definately include things that other people wouldn’t.  It’s all about moderation and counting calories for me. 

Anyway, winter decided to poke his little head back into my life.  It was 21 degrees when I woke up this morning!  That didn’t stop me from heading to the gym and getting in a great workout.  Caleb’s got a friend over today and on my to do list are cleaning out the medicine cabinet (I don’t even know all the stuff that’s in there!) and cleaning off my “to do” counter.  Wish me luck!
