Total Weight Lost: 64 pounds
I know I say this often, but weight loss is weird. I’m not currently exercising – haven’t really had the energy and the weather has had everything aching, and I’m not even being all that exacting on what I’m eating. I mean, I am aiming to stay under 1200, but there are days (like yesterday) when I eat things that I don’t really know the calorie count (hubby made cabbage rolls, but they had a ton of extra cheese in them and probably higher fat ground beef) but somehow it’s all still working out. At least for now.
Definitely not complaining though!! I’ll take what I can get. 🙂
So, now that I’m back on track (more or less), I’m continuing the quest for yummy, hopefully somewhat healthier, low carb options. Enter Simple Mills and their line of gluten-free bake mixes.
I ordered the 3-count set, which came with Chocolate Muffin, Artisan Bread, and Chocolate Chip Cookie mixes. Of course, I made the Chocolate Muffins…
They weren’t bad and still warm it was like eating a brownie (which according to the directions you can actually make brownies with this mix so double yay!!). Not super-sweet – more of a dark chocolate flavor, but all-in-all pretty tasty. And at 110 calories* and 14 carbs, it definitely fits into my diet (with a little protein and fiber thrown in as well).
Can’t wait to try the other mixes!! Yum!!
* to make sure that each muffin was as close to the suggested serving as possible I used a one tablespoon scoop and evenly distributed the batter. Each muffin cup took about 3 tablespoons… making a total of 12 muffins.
