My banana muffins were:
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (6 tbsp in my powder) (I know there is some controversy about cooking protein powder, but I've seen nothing but debating about it so eh)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 c splenda
3 small bananas
2 tbsp vanilla yogurt
3 tbsp light vanilla soy milk
1 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
cinnamon to taste
Icing: 7 oz ff cream cheese
splenda and cinnamon to taste
I mixed together the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mashed the bananas and mixed them with wet ingredients in another bowl.
Combined the wet with the dry and made it into individual muffins. It made 7 large ones for me.
350*F for 30 minutes did it for me.
For the icing, beat room temperature cream cheese with splenda and cinnamon to taste. I like to ice them as soon as they come out of the oven so it melts a little and spreads easier.
My husband loved them as well.
For my muffins, the nutritional info was:
The nutritional info will vary depending on what protein powder, milk, and yogurt someone would use though, and also the size of the bananas.

This is the thread I was looking for! I had posted my entire week's dinner menu to another thread because I couldn't find this one. Hello, all!
I did pretty well today, too. I'm focusing on vegetables/fruits, lean meats and dairy, getting in at least some whole grains, limiting bread & junk food. But my diet allows anything, so what you see here isn't cheating.
B: oatmeal, banana smoothie (banana and 1% milk blended together)
L: Middle Eastern dish of lentils, spinach, potatoes, onions, cilantro, lemon juice, spices; 1 can Pepsi (yup, the kind with the sugar and caffeine)
S (throughout the workday): 4 lifesavers, 1 creamsaver, water
D: broccoli & cheese sauce (hey, it's only 150 cal for the whole box). Water. Was going to have a baked potato, but I opened it and it had a huge brown rot spot, so I threw it out. Was also going to have a few slices of London broil, but haven't wanted it yet. Maybe because I also had... cheesecake. Like I said, anything's allowed. I'd made it for the holidays and decided to finish it off slowly. This was the last piece.
If I get hungry later, I can always have the London broil or a container of yogurt, but I'm actually rather distressed and not wanting to eat.
I should still get in some exercise. Maybe tonight's the night to break out one of my videos.
Planning for Friday:
B: oatmeal and mango smoothie
L: probably the London broil and some butternut squash soup and an apple
S: the workday usual of Lifesavers (bad office air makes my throat sore) and water
D: tofu stirfry (tofu, onions, peppers, carrots, celery, bok choy, bean sprouts, soy sauce blend) over rice
S: considering baking some oatmeal raisin cookies, if I can find a light recipe that doesn't use artificial sweeteners
That was good! Now I won't dither about what to have and then go get something bad.

I'm pretty mad at myself today. I ate the food that drug vendors brought in, rather than sticking to my diet. and I know that tomorrow night, my friends will want to go out. :(
breakfast - yoplait yogurt smoothie
snack - 100 cal sun chips
lunch - campbell's soup at hand chicken & stars
dinner - possibly some naked tenders from buffalo wild wings. but i refuse to drink any beer. i am so angry at myself right now. :(

Yesterday went very well. Hoping today goes the same.
That recipe looks great. I think I'll be making those soon.
B-1 C. raisin bran w/ 1/2 C. ff milk
L-turkey wrap with veggies and cream cheese
D-chicken stir fry with peanut sauce and lots of veggies
E-either a turbokick workout or a run.

i am so angry at myself right now. :(
This is easier said than done, but don't be mad at yourself. The mind is a dangerous thing if you let it run amok like that. It was one slip up - no worries. Keep at it. Pick yourself up and restart. You can do it and you will make today/tomorrow a good day. It's like Stuart Smiley from SNL and his daily affirmations. Hey, there's some truth to it! ;)
B - hogged on pb. Eh. 3 tbsp pb + 2 slices whole grain white bread (didn't know this even existed but ok) + 1 cup skim milk + 1/2 tbsp chocolate powder + 1 apple = big breffix of 545 cals.
S - *if* I'm hungry, that pb usually does the trick. 1/4 cup Craisins (130 cals)
L - Lettuce + 2 tbsps dressing + 4 oz gouda cheese. Excluding lettuce and guesstimating cheese, I'd say total cals here 160...
S - banana (100 cals)
Evening walk of 4 miles. Alternating jogging with walking and if I'm in the mood, some sprints.
S - banana (100 cals)
D -2 small sized chicken 'meat'balls (no red meat) + 1 serving of spaghetti + a side salad. This is a total guesstimate, so maybe 500 cals?
Total for the day: 1535. Not bad.

sunnigummi - that's the kind of bread I use. My bf refuses to eat whole wheat bread (well, any brown bread for that matter) so I'm hoping this one is a little bit healthier than regular white.
haven't been following my planning at all. I must today because I think I used up all of my flex points already (and it's only day 3 of weight watchers :nono:)
b - turkey wrap
l - 1/2 chicken sandwhich from zaxby's (not the greatest, but it's leftovers), apple smeared w/ peanut butter
d - have no idea, taking my bf to the doctor so I'm sure it'll be fast food but I'll order a salad or something healthy
