I weighed in this morning. I am down 95lbs. 5 more to go....I thought I was plateauing but it is not the case. Good news. :-)
I tried two new recipes today. I made Foodie Fiasco's Cauliflower Risotto tonight- using chicken stock and a Vadalia onion. I finished with some pecorino romano, for a little tangy salty/nuttiness. I had really needed a break from meat for one meal- it was nice to just have some veggie goodness.
I also made something I am calling Oatmeal Protein Cookies- adapted from another recipe. Here is my version:
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Mix all the wet ingredients together. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients. Slowly add dry to wet. Scoop out golf ball size cookies onto a silpat - I used an ice cream scoop to get the same size cookie each time.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned.
