Today’s Lunch

Picture

Thankfully, yesterday was Friday and the end of hubby’s terrible week at work. I decided to celebrate with him by making him some brownies (yes, I am a terrible emotional eater and hubby is starting to follow suit…really gotta work on that!)


Black Bean Avocado Brownies

This was taken from the lovely people over at bakeaholicmama.com. The only alteration I made was replacing the sugar for Splenda and replaced the coffee with more cocoa powder. I had a hard time pureeing the black bean and avocado together, so I added some water. This gave the brownies a bit of a funny texture, so I froze them and it improved them.

The recipe made 15 brownies at 104 calories each. Not too bad!

Zucchini Pizza

I woke up craving pizza (nothing new for me) and decided to try a healthier alternative. So over to pinterest I went and found this great recipe from slenderkitchen.com. I followed the recipe exactly, but didn’t have any pepperoni, so I put 3 tsp of onions on each zuchini slice and 3 grape tomatoes cut in half. I also added garlic powder to taste and a half tsp of bread crumbs to each slice to soak up some of the moisture and give it a bit of crunch!

My alterations gave each stick 47.25 calories and they were delicious!
