“There is no such thing as a failed experiment, only experiments with unexpected outcomes”
* Richard Buckminster
After work today, the hubby and I decided to hit the sauna to relax and work on some of our “homework” for our couples group on Wednesday. Then I decided to try little sweet treat experiment while getting dinner prepared. But before I get into that here are the rest of the day’s eats….
Snack: Celery + Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (60 cals)
Lunch: 3/4 cup ground turkey stew (175 cals) + Large Spinach Salad (125 cals)
Spinach, strawberries, asparagus, 1 Tbsp hummus, mushrooms, 1 Tbsp avocado. Yum! (125 cals)
Dessert: Black cherry jello made with diet ginger ale (10 cals)
Dinner: For dinner I made 1/2 cup mashed cauliflower and topped it with 1 Tbsp crumbled goat cheese, 1/2 cup steamed broccoli and 1/2 cup sautéed asparagus. Delicious!! (150 cals)
