Feeling Like Kimmy

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Kimmy talking about her wedding to Bretty :

"If I had of known the flowers and dinners out every night were going to stop, I never would've done it"

"When are ya comin' home Kim?...........I can't use the washin' machine"

*Kitchen Fun*

Well, yesterday I was feeling bored very creative so I decided to make something using all the seedy type things I could find in my kitchen and I came up with Choconut Seed Bites.  It was a success and failure all rolled into one.  They didn't turn out exactly as I expected, but they weren't revolting either. 

Choconut Seed Bites (2 pro points each)
My bites were actually supposed to be muffins, but they were a little flat.  I did use self raising flour, but I was thinking that some bi-carb soda may give them a bit of a lift??  Because these weren't a complete disaster and I do like them, I am definitely going to make them again with a couple of tweaks.  A bit more of a chocolate flavour is needed so I am thinking some chocolate essence, maybe?

This is how my masterpiece bites were created :
  • 1 cup Wholemeal Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tbs Cocoa Powder
  • 20g Sunflower Kernels (Seeds)
  • 20g Shredded Coconut
  • 15g Slivered Almonds
  • 10g Brown Flax Seeds
  • 10g Black Chia Seeds
  • 250ml Coconut Water
  • Liquid Sweetener (equivalent to 1 tbs of sugar)
  • 1/4 tsp Xanthan Gum 
  • I used the gum cause the batter was a little thin after adding the water

Simply combine all the ingredients, you can even use a bowl if you like, mix together well and then spoon into a greased muffin pan - makes 12.  I baked mine on 150c for just under 15 mins.

****I have a strange oven - I cook everything on 150c and always, always for less time that you are supposed to cook it for.  Eg. if the recipe says to cook for 20 mins, I check it at 10 mins and maybe cook for another 5 mins*****

*Exciting News*
    Baby number 5 is on the way!! Only kidding, the exciting news is that I tracked all of my food yesterday and I counted all of the points!!  I can not remember the last time I tracked 'n' counted and the surprising thing is that it was e-a-s-y.

    Breakfast - 6 pro points
    • 1 pro point - coffee
    • 5 pro points - 40g cereal + 1/2 cup skim milk

    Lunch - 7 pro points
    • 5 pro points - Mini Pizza
    • 2 pro points - 3 egg whites on side

    The Mini Spinach & Mushroom Pizza was soooo good :
    • 1 Herb & Garlic mini Pita (3 PPs
    • A dob of Dolmio Classic Tomato Sauce (0 points)
    • 6 baby spinach leaves (0 points)
    • 1 chopped mushroom (0 points)
    • 20g of tasty cheese (2 PPs)
    On the side :
    • 3 egg whites (cooked obviously) (2 PPs)
    • 1 mushroom (0 points)

    Dinner - 7 pro points
    • Dinner Salad

    • 1/2 medium avocado (4 PPs)
    • 1 boiled egg (2 PPs)
    • 20 grams of grated Haloumi Cheese (1 PP)
    • Lettuce, carrot, cucumber, capsicum, beetroot, tomato (0 points)

    That is not all I ate yesterday, but those are my main meals.  Just tracking and counting for 1 day has made me feel so good.  I think it's because I proved to myself that I can do it, that I actually accomplished something!

    I don't think I will ever make a pizza with just tomato paste again - the Dolmio sauce on the base made a huge difference.  In fact, the difference with the sauce made such a huge impact on me that I even told crapolla face my husband about it.  He has no interest at all in my lunch, but I made him sit through a detailed description anyway - just for fun!  Fun for me that is :)


    1. Glad you were able to track all of your food. It can make it so much easier to see how your eating is doing by seeing all food.

    2. I know that WW is having a special in California this week. I can go get weighed and meet them and get some kind of sign up deal. I will have to do that tommorrow....

      Do you really like their program? Have your tried others?

      Thanks for coming to the party!
