I live with a "twig" as my Weight Watchers leader Stacy calls them. LOL basically I live with someone who can eat whatever he wants whenever he wants and never gain an ounce. It is a challenge especially when you are the person who cooks twig all of their calorie rich junk food. I have chosen to live a healthy life style but he has not changed his love of fried plantains, rice pilaf, chicken thighs, cake, peanut M&Ms, pizza, frosted flakes, ramen noodles, etc you get the idea. So often I am cooking 2 things one for me and peanut and one for him. It is ok I am used to it. Honestly we cannot eat much of his gluten filled food anyways so its easier to say no. Although its funny your taste buds evolve and i cannot even get steak in my mouth now the taste is revolting. Peanut did not even eat a piece of her Easter candy, she is not into sugar at all and I am not complaining ;)
So when it comes to dessert sometimes I want it especially when I am baking a butter golden cake that smells amazing. So Sunday I came up with this quick easy pumpkin recipe I can make after whipping up his cake and I enjoyed it a lot!
So here is the results he got the cake and I got the souffle :
1/2 can of canned pumpkin
1/3 cup of egg whites
2 table spoons of baking cocoa
1/3 cup of almond milk
truvia to taste
All I did was mix it all together and bake it in a crock pan for 45 minutes or so on 350 right in the over with the cake. Super easy and super yummy!
The entire crock is 3 points plus!!!!!!!! I will take that over a 5 point sliver of cake any day ;)
Do you have to create separate meals at home for your family?
