This is really hard!
I’m being good, really I am… but its hard!
Baking is my “thing”. Every Sunday for as long as I remember I’ve baked. And then I invite people over to share the food and the company.
Now I’m on Project Get Off my Fat A** and I can’t bake. Today I paced up and down past the pantry shelves repeatedly checking if there was anything I could make without butter, sugar and chocolate. I wondered whether a carrot cake or banana bread would be cheating because hey, they have vegetables, right? And then I googled “low fat baking”.
Low Fat, No Fun Food.
In my web search I accidentally stumbled across a recipe for a chocolate cake with peanut butter cream cheese frosting that nearly ended Project Get Off my Fat A** right there on the spot. It was definitely NOT low fat.
When my cravings get too bad I allow myself 2 squares of VERY good, VERY dark chocolate. And it works, for a while.
I hope soon I can fit back in my pants. And when I do that peanut butter cream cheese cake is MINE.
