I Think I Found Perfection!

What to make for dessert when most of your dinner party guests are on a restricted diet? Carrot Zucchini muffins, of course!


It is October 8, 2017 and I am enrolled in the State of Slim program at work. The program gives excellent guidelines on what to eat and when. However, this girl likes to color outside of the lines. I also want to reach my weight loss goals and am motivated to follow the process. Soooooo…I’ve been experimenting inside the lines but with extra flair.


Prince Charming and I hosted my family for dinner last week. Most of us were on the #healthysexyseptember 30-day sugar cleanse, so I took it as a challenge to bring some fun to everyone's barren taste buds.


We served lemon grilled salmon, quinoa, salad loaded with various colorful veggies, and Cosmos! What? Alcohol is not sugar-free. Yep, my circle looked at me sideways as well. I used Diet Cranberry Pomegranate juice (no sugar), freshly squeezed lime, sparkling water, liquid stevia, and some ice cubes. Delicious!


For dessert, I rolled out the Carrot Zucchini Muffins. Everyone on a restricted diet indulged and felt satiated. Those who could eat as they pleased took a few bites without wincing. It tastes like perfection to me as it has been over a month since I’ve had any kind of bread—your turn to try. Let me know what you think! 






P.S.  Don’t forget to add about ¼ inch of water to the empty cups in the second muffin tin, so your pan does not burn. You will know that the muffins are done when a butter knife comes out clean once you poke one of the center muffins.​
