Wow, almost had to re-learn how to post on my own blog. Sorry it's been so long, life has been a bit crazy. The good news is that I'm still following my plant based diet. I've now lost 45 lbs. and feel WONDERFUL!! Of course, there are some new problems to contend with, the first being that my clothes are waaaay too big! I keep punching holes in my belts and cinching things up further but we are finally to a point where I need to look at getting new clothes. Nice problem to have!
On a side note, one of the recent recipes I tried and really enjoyed was a recipe from one of the McDougall books for strawberry syrup. The syrup can be used over pancakes, ice cream or for dipping other fruit. Whatever it's use....it's good stuff! Here's the recipe:
Servings: Makes 2 cups
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 6-8 minutes
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
1 cup sliced strawberries, thawed frozen or fresh
1 Tbsp. corn starch
Pour the juice into a blender and add 1/2 cup of the strawberries. Process until smooth. Pour into a saucepan. Add the cornstarch and stir until well mixed. Cook, stirring until thickened. Add the remaining strawberries. Heat through and server warm.
