Hello friends and Happy Saturday! Yesterday was a great day at work I got off early and was home by 4:30 whoo hooo! I got busy in the kitchen because I really enjoy it. I made another batch of the pumpkin coconut muffins I added more stevia about 10 packets of truvia, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 tsp allspice...delish. I think the allspice was what we were missing. I am so thrilled to have these muffins as replacements for pumpkin bread. Regular pumpkin bread is sooo high in sugar and white carbs, last year I made tons of it with pumpkins we grew. As a result hubby and I got chubby bellies.
I have been using coconut oil for the past several weeks in all my coconut breads/muffins. It's really amazing and cheaper than using butter since a loaf of coconut bread calls for one stick of butter. I heat it up in the microwave to measure it out. I have also been using less than the recipe calls for instead of 8 Tbs I have been using 6 and I can't tell a difference.
Hubby told me last night that all the coconut, almond and flax things I have been making have helped him to stay on the Ft. I am really enjoying all these different things and I don't feel deprived at all on the Ft.
