Dinner and dessert

Last night I made turkey fajitas for dinner, since it was a big hit when I threw it together last week. I added shredded pepper-jack almond cheese, avocado, and tapatio and it was awesome. 

By the way, if you haven't tried almond cheese you should definitely look in to it! It's a great cheese alternative for those of us that are lactose intolerant and it is much healthier too :) I get mine at Sunflower Market, but you can probably find it at any health food store. 

I also tried a new recipe from the DAMY blog. If you haven't checked out this website/blog yet, you definitely should! Amy has some great recipes! Last night I made her chocolate protein "cake" but I made it like I do the protein bars. They are lower in carbs than Jamie Eason's typical bars, so they will be great for phase three of the trainer which starts next week! Side note: I can't wait for phase 3 and HIIT to start... I need to get rid of this 'bulking' bulk I've acquired. (I'm super happy with the amount of muscle that I've gained though!) 

Here's the recipe

1 cup pumpkin 
1/2 cup egg whites
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup oat flour (can be subbed for almond flour for lower carb count)
2 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 c xylitol 

Combine wet ingredients in mixing bowl, then combine dry, then whisk both together
Pour mixture in a prepared pyrex dish and bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean 

They came out really good, very similar to Jamie's bars-- although something may be a little 'off' because the photo on the DAMY website looks like a completely different consistency than how mine turned out. Either way, they still taste yummy :)
