Last night’s cupcake adventure was a new attempt and a new success…
Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting
It took a couple batches, but I think I got it right! Luckily, Jay works with a great group of guys who are always willing to take my baked goods…even if they are the batches that didn’t make the cut.
This morning’s workout was a little more laborious than usual, thanks to a BodyPump class yesterday. It had been a loooong time since I last took a class, and my body is already feelin’ it. I can only imagine how I’ll feel tomorrow.
So I kept things a little on the lighter side today with my favorite 45 minute treadmill walk, followed by some 10lb. Slimdown Yoga. It really felt awesome to stretch!
A little mish-mash of goodies, if you will…
A banana + a strawberry CHO…
…which were great, but totally didn’t compare to this muffin!
I followed her recipe to a “T,” except where she peeled the lemon zest with a vegetable peeler, I simply used my lemon zester and mixed it into the sugar that way.
I’ll tell you, for being a healthy muffin, these babies certainly don’t have that “healthy” taste. You guys know what I mean…you can usually tell at least somewhat of a difference with a “healthified” muffin. But not these!
The lemon is definitely the predominant flavor and basically screams SPRING! If you only want a hint of lemon, I would suggest using vanilla flavored yogurt instead. And the raspberries…oh the raspberries! They pair so nicely…just check out those big guys poking out there…YUMMM-O!
I’m sure…no, I’m positive that there will be more of these consumed today.
Have a great day everyone!
Question for the Day:
What foods/meals scream SPRING to you?
