You know, lately when I come on here to post I look at that before and after picture of myself and I seriously wonder who that other person even was. I don't know her! I know that none of you knew me like that before picture but I had a totally different mindset and view on life than I do now.
Now I know that we don't have to just accept looking that way and feeling the way I did before. I just new that at my age of 50 before I started the BFC, I would always be that size - and nothing I did would change that - it was too late for me - so I'm just gonna eat what ever I want - who cares anyway - nobody....
Do any of those feeling sound familiar? Well you are not alone and it is possible to lose the weight like I did and keep it off forever. And here is the secret.......
So whats going on? First they keep saying don't eat wheat anymore cause it bad for us - now they keep saying to not eat Almond flour cause its bad for us....
Those of us that started eating almond flour in our baked goods realized early on that is was more fattening than other flours. We can't eat it all day every day and we figured that out, but to say its bad for us might be a stretch I think. Its just ground up almonds. Would we eat 50 almonds all at once?? NO - So I think - like the wheat thing, in moderation is the key to everything we eat.. Thoughts?
So I had a little pumpkin puree in a container in the fridge and need to use it up. So I made a pumpkin muffin. I saw on another healthy site I follow that she added coconut flour and flaxseed. So I made it like this;
1 tb of coconut oil (melted)
1 egg, some USA milk, 2 tb of coconut flour, 2 tb of fllaxseed, 1/2 t baking powder, 2 tb of pumpkin puree, spices-cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and stevia drops.
I added in a few blueberries and crushed walnuts.
I mixed it all up in a small glass bowl and cooked in microwave. It was kind of thick so I had to keep cooking longer - like 5 min.
This morning I made another one with the last pumpkin but I made it with 2 tb coconut flour and 1 tb of psyllium husks - MUCH better...Not as dry and yummy with Natures Hollow preserves on top also.
Then we went ot his moms house in Pasadena - his sister who lives up north was down with her 2 girls just for the day. We visited and Hubby fell asleep on the couch. LOL Then he had to go to work at 6pm. I stayed for dinner and had a pc of chicken and pulled off the skin, green beans, salad, and 3 bites of mac & cheese and 3 bites of a cake after.
By the time I got home it was 9:30pm and my furry girls were waiting and happy to see me. Its funny but when I am gone like that they never eat or hardly drink - just wait for me all day - well and probably sleep
Right now I am trying to be quiet while hubby takes a little sleep and he wants to go see that Tom Cruise movie - Oblivion when he wakes up before he goes to work.
Have a nice day - its gonna be between 85-90 here.
This is PurpleRosy signing off...
Keep on BFC ' n :-)
