First lets begin with what I had: 1 lonely single serving of plain yogurt in the fridge. I wasn't planning on baking with it today so I thought what can I do with it???? I got inspiration from a favorite blog of mine http://theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot.com/ - She is a phenomenal blogger and I use her recipes all the time! She has talked about flavoring foods with gelatin aka. Jello and so I thought why not...let's try it. Now I do like things sweet I have not lost that since my WLS but I can't do sugars unless they are substitutes, so here was my "frankenstein" concoction.
1. take 1 self serving plain greek yogurt
2. add 3 tsp of flavored sugar free jello ( I used lime)
3. add 1 packet of sweet and low - you can use splenda, truvia, or others, but I really like the 'kick' of sweet and low in sweet sometimes
4. mix and enjoy!
I am really looking for new ideas on how to incorporate greek yogurt into baking and what it can be substituted for in recipes because my tummy just doesn't like fake or man-made protein like whey, though I'm willing to keep trying to find one that I can use. Speaking of that I'm off to email my favorite blogger for some ideas!
Today I'm happy to report that I'm a little bit happier and the fog is lifting slowly. Not quick enough for me, but I am a little bit happier than I have been and I didn't wake up so blah and blue. It has been a long three weeks of blue times so I'm hoping that my new medicine will go with my creative outlook and keep me moving and grooving. I'm off to make my small grocery list of things I need to go this week and we'll see how Sunday goes!
