Not too much new to report for my HYC check-in that I didn't share on Monday anyway. My official weigh-in isn't until tomorrow and I don't think the scale will be friendly like to me. har. I do feel pretty good muscle wise- the boot camp workouts are starting to show muscle wise. I just need to get back to more regular food journalling, water drinking- the usual stuff I know I need to do.
I didn't find much at the library tonight in terms of light recipe books ( other than reserving a diet/ recipe book by Prevention magazine that looked interesting and a couple of videos by Fitness Fig's favourite fitness lady ), but I did renew all the recipe books I already had out. This brownie recipe is from the library's Rose Reisman's The Complete Light Kitchen. It's Triple Chocolate Brownies and it caught my eye because the intro said she created it for the Movenpick restaurant in Toronto- and who doesn't love Movenpick icecream? mmmmm...icecream.
Anyway, it works out to 3 points for a piece. I don't know HOW they cut their pieces into perfect ( and large looking ) squares. Mine are little brownie fingers ( an 8x8 pan into 12 pieces- maybe my math is rusty?) Perhaps one could add a point or so and do 8 pretty pieces? Anyway, one finger IS a chocolatey delight- if you are into that kind of thing.
The recipe also suggested drizzling chocolate over the pieces and in the picture they use white chocolate which looks pretty. It's not in the nutritional breakdown or ingredient list, so I didn't add it. It did make for a pretty picture in the actual book though- what with the perfect 2 inch looking squares, drizzled and all. kinda like false advertising though? Airbrushing and now this. sheesh. ;)
Hope everyone had a great week! off to do a bit of blog reading before bed.
