As it was announced this morning, I did pumpkin muffins! Here's the recipe:
- 1/2 c. oats
- 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
- 3/4 c. of pumpkin or butternut squash puree
- 3 tbsp egg white
- 1 whole egg
- 3/4 baking splenda
- 1/2 "beauty" drink (I'll explain it later)
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 pumpkin spices
- 1/4 pumpkin seeds (where the name came from)
Well, now about the "beauty" drink. It's made with white fungus and chinese dates. When they're dry, they look like this:
I soaked them about 2 hours and then put them on the slow cooker with water and chinese dates for about 12 hours!!!! So, they get dissolved completely into a starchy liquid! this means all its collagen is released and as you might know, collagen is essential to keep our skin moisturized and elastic. That's why I always have it and every time I drink it I feel that I'm doing something good to my skin. Besides of that, it contains much iron, vitamin C, calcium and phosphorus.
when they're made, in almost liquid form
Back to food. For lunch I used one serving of rice salad and 1/2 canned salmon. Delicious! I love canned salmon, I'll do more recipes with it! As side dish, I had a small salad made with sprouts+sprouts and cherry tomatoes. Desserts was half cup of fage with cinnamon.
Before my spinning class, I had two pumpkin muffins. When I went to co-op to buy some ingredient for my new "special" lasagna, I saw these. I was not sure if they will taste good or not, but at least they're cute. So, I bought them, (after having two muffins) I still managed to have 2/3 of the cookie, they're so yummy!!!!
back home, I had my daily apple.
okay, that's all for now. Back later
