Hike to Poo Poo
We hiked to Poo Poo point from the high school. This was a tough hike. I was huffing, puffing and sweating the whole way up -- total time was about 2.5 hours. But look at the results! I lost the 3 pounds I had gained over the last couple weeks, so now I'm back at my lowest in 3 months. And my blood sugar was 84 today! Whoo hoo.
In 3 months, I've lost a total of 2 inches off my waist and hips.
This time of year, you can't help but think of pumpkin pie. I made this custard as practice yesterday. It tastes so good and sweet! I will take this to my brother's house for Thanksgiving since there will be some borderline diabetics as well as sugar-sensitive kids there.
1 29-ounce can pumpkin puree
sweetner to taste - I used 20 packets or so of Splenda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 - 13oz can Coconut milk
Mix and pour into 6 large muffin tins greased with butter. Preheat oven to 425 then turn to 350 and bake for 45 minutes until a knife inserted comes out clean. I froze the individual portions.
