First off, I have to tell you about my breakfast! 4 egg whites plain, cooked omelet style, on a Flat Out Light Itialian wrap.
No biggie right?……Until you put some Cedar’s Roasted Vegetable Hummus on it!
It’s all-sorts of awesomeness in wrap form! So simple yet so good-how did I not think to do this earlier? I know I’ve seen it done….. Sorry no pic, but you can imagine right?
Exercise today: 2 miles on the treadmill in the form of intervals, followed by chest and back. 20! unassissted pullups (done in sets of 4’s and 5’s but still – WOOT! WOOT!)
After a shower, I baked up an Applesauce Cake to take to the In-Laws:
Smart Balance, Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread, 1/4c Softened
Egg, fresh, 1 large
Brown Sugar, 1/3 cup, packed
Applesauce, sweetened, 3/4 cup
Whole Wheat Flour, 3/4 cup
Baking Soda, 1 tsp
Baking Powder, .5 tsp
Salt, 1 dash
Pumpkin Pie spice, 1 tsp + Cinnamon if desired
Vanilla, 1 tsp
Apples, fresh, 1 small, diced
Oats, Dry, 1/3 cup
Golden Raisins (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×9 inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar, vanilla and egg until smooth. Stir in applesauce. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Fold in the diced apple and raisins to the dry ingredients. Stir into the applesauce mixture until well blended. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
Bake for 20-22 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are golden. Cool in the pan over a wire rack.

I also decided to make a Greek Yogurt ‘Butterscotch Frosting’ to put on top:
1tbsp Butterscotch Pudding (Jell-o FF/SF)
4 oz Greek Yogurt (Plain FF)
1/2 C Cool Whip (FF)
Mix all ingredients together until thick. Chill. It kinda tastes like cheesecake.
(The ‘frosting’ adds 20 Cals, 1g Sugar, 2g Carbs and 1.5g Protien.)
My MIL made Fried Eggplant and grilled steaks at the request of the men. While that cooked, the kids played:
Everyone loved the apple cake, and because we have the little ones, we were practically ordered to take home numerous desserts. Italians. Need 2 Feed.
This will more than likely end up in my office kitchen tomorrow…
Dinner will be leftovers of Salmon Salad with Cedar’s Hummus (can’t stop eating it!) and Sweet Potato Falafel. Hope all you Dads out there had a wonderful day!
