Evening Snack

My hamstrings are still sore from my workout on Monday - haven't done RDLs or ball leg curls for a while and my legs are telling me about it!

I'm proofreading a games encyclopedia at the moment, which makes for interesting work!

Thursday's food

2pm tomato soup with chilli, kidney beans, kangaroo mince, goat cheese and avocado

5pm an apple

7pm glass of chardonnay while making dinner

8pm lamb steak, warm salad with roasted pumpkin, red capsicum and chickpeas

10pm cottage cheese, cocoa, stevia and almond butter

Kylie wanted to know the 'recipe' for my evening snack so she could have a go at making it. It's very easy:
Mix together
- 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
- 1 Tbsp cocoa
- about 1/8 tsp stevia powder*
Then drizzle with 1 Tbsp of your favourite nut butter.

*This is the stevia powder I use. It comes with a teeny tiny spoon inside. I use three spoonfuls, which is just under 1/8 tsp.

How do you find the Stevia, Charlotte? I could never come at it, tastes odd to me. A lot of people seem to use it though, so perhpas I'm the odd one. LOL.

I stick to my Xylitol.

Hi Kek, I don't like stevia liquid (bitter aftertaste) - the powder is better. I do like Xylitol and haven't had it for a while. Might get some next time I run out of stevia. Cheers, Charlotte
