For the whole batch (makes 5...not the 4 you see above. Someone couldn't control herself), sans frosting: 10.2 Fat / 21.9 Carbs / 34 Protein
20g rolled oats
30g (1 scoop) Whey Protein
10g whole wheat flour
1 packet Splenda (or other sweetener) 1 tsp baking powder or xanthan gum
15g light cream cheese
Mix the dry (first 5) ingredients in a bowl while preheating oven to 325. In a small bowl, beat egg and let cream cheese soften to room temperature. Fold egg and cream cheese into dry ingredients, mix well and add about a tablespoon of water. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean (about 15 minutes).
As you can see in the first pic I chose to top mine with cream cheese frosting :D For this I simply mixed 1 tablespoon room temperature cream cheese with 2 grams of sugar free chocolate Jell-O mix.
Anyway so you know how yesterday we were talking about how I was up all night being mushy? Yeah, so I had cystitis. (That's the non-ladylike term for a UTI. Oops, there it is -- I let the iguana out of the garage!)
After four hours of intermittent crying, three full tablets of Melatonin, and more Ibuprofin than I care to remember (sorry liver!), I turned to the trusty Internet. And I found the holy grail.
That, my friends, is a little miracle called the Earth Clinic, whose users heartily recommended two things: 1) Apple Cider Vinegar and 2) Alka-Seltzer.
Luckily I had both in my cupboard. For the record, I would NOT recomment taking a shot of Apple Cider Vinegar by itself. Nor would I recommend mixing it with water. What ya need to do is take two tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar, mix in approximately a pound of honey, and then hold your nose and swallow quick. And UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you mix the Apple Cider Vinegar and the Alka-Seltzer. Just don't.
ANYhow I was so thrilled to find this home remedy that I am now convinced that I should get my grubby little paws hands on all of them.
What is the best (or worst!!!) home remedy you've tried?
