After my yogurt, acorn squash, TJ’s cereal snack I was still feeling hungry so I ate one of my Gluten Free Bars.
Tonight I wanted to make more cranberry sauce because I have already eaten all that I made the other day – it was so yummy. Instead of adding sugar and agave nectar, I added a peeled, cored and chopped apple to the cranberries and water. I let the mixture cook for about 10 –12 minutes.
I used some of the cran-apple sauce as a topping to sautéed zucchini (I cooked it in a pan sprayed with non-stick spray) which was over a bed of lettuce. My recipe produces a very tart sauce but I actually prefer it that way. I would much rather taste the fruit than taste nothing but a sugary gelatinous mess. My bowl here looks strange but it worked for my palate.
I also stuffed 1/2 a roasted acorn squash with the cran-apple sauce – again another yummy combo. On my plate is 2 pieces of TJ’s Sprouted Multi-Grain Bread (each slice has 5 grams of protein) woo-hoo!!! I topped one slice with lite Swiss cheese then popped in under the broiler and the other slice has a TBS of PB. The bread is delicious. It is made with high protein sprouted wheat berries so it has a great nutty taste and a chewy texture.
My meal was followed up with a wedge of dark chocolate which was awesome. I like to let it melt in my mouth – it last longer and it gets very creamy. I find that if you simply chew it, the chocolate flavor doesn’t fully come out. Charlie quite enjoyed this chocolate too – you all know what a chocoholic he is.
I am still feeling so stuffy – I hate that wacko feeling in my head. I think a nice warm cup of tea would be so great tonight. We are going to watch a movie – Sense and Sensibility – I haven’t seen it but my huz has. He is so sweet to watch it again. Of course with my tea a Chocolate Brownie Z BAr would be the perfect treat so that is just what I am going to have. I hope you had a great day. Good night.
