Treats really are around every corner. Today’s sugar pusher is a young man in greasy dark blue pants- our friendly neighborhood oil change guy. While we wait, we’re offered these…
We’ve been so good. Our junkfoodjournal only reads one treat so far this week. (We are trying to stay in the pediatrician recommended range of 2 or 3 treats a week.) Tomorrow our slate gets erased and we get to start all over again. 😉
After a light, healthy dinner we were allowed a treat. I did a recipe makeover for oatmeal raisin cookies out of this wonderful cookbook from a New York bakery. I halved the sugar and butter. I was so impressed that it already called for 3 cups of whole oats, and a whole tablespoon of cinnamon which is shown to stabilize blood sugar levels.
Yum. Crunchy and chewy. My girls helped in the kitchen, and the baking sent happy aromas throughout our home. While staying true to our junkfoodjournal, we were able to have two cookies each. However, my daughter liked them so much she sneaked in and ate two more. Four cookies in one night! BUT, if i halved the recipe, then four is really two, right? Right? Right. I think this week was a success. Beginner’s luck? Maybe. We’ll see what food fights next week has in store for us.
