So what's a girl to do? Turn her frown upside down by baking in her big girl Easy Bake Oven. A.K.A toaster oven. Yes, I got it for free with coupons at JCP. Along with the free jeans, tshirt, and donut maker. I have no shame.
I went with protein brownies for two reasons.1. I had one scoop of chocolate protein powder left in the can. And a shake seemed to obvious. 2. If I keep instagramming donuts no one is going to believe that I am Real Into healthy eating.
How'd they turn out? Ehh But I think I know why...
The recipe that I had picked out is similar to the one Jamie Eason makes. No baby food. Gross. But it did call for unsweetened applesauce. Because that's soooo different fom baby food. ;-)
When I went to the fridge my applesauce was gone. I honestly thought it was in there. I did have low fat organic yogurt. That'll work. So I used that instead.
Life can be like that sometimes. We think something is there but it's not. You go to put on your favorite dress and it has a big stain on it. And you leave in ten minutes. That's okay. Pull out that pencil skirt and lacy blouse. You'll be fine.
Maybe the problem is bigger. Maybe you lost your job (or quite in a huff) after eleven years. What's your backup? For us, it was saving the money to pay off our student loans and not being in debt.
The brownies are decent. A little chewie for my taste but quite edible and still healthy. Your backup plan may not be as good as what you wanted. But it will work.
If all else fails, you can just make sure there's always unsweetened applesauce in the fridge.
Do you have a healthy snack/dessert recipe? Do you ever want to go to Oz? Hehe!
