The Corner Count

I have had an ok week this week. Still working on the tracking but over all ok.

I only went to the gym once but did go on some long walks and runs around my house.

Recipe of the Week:

Sweet Brown Bread

12 pieces, 2 points plus per slice

1 and ¼ cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp grated orange or lemon zest
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
½ cup low-fat buttermilk
1 egg
3 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375. Spray loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, orange zest, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, egg, molasses, and brown sugar. Pour over the flour mixture, mixing quickly to blend (do not over mix).

Transfer to the pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Cool completely on a rack.

So now time for the weekly weight in! This week I stayed the same for a total loss of -6.8lbs.

We will see how next week goes!

Happy Crafting,
Alley Cat
