Micky... this is the recipe I used for the Applesauce Fluff, I just substitue the Applesauce for the pineapple, put Maple extract in place of the coconut extract, added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Put the extract in a measuring cup and add water to it to make 1 cup of water.(This is the water you mix in with the dry milk and beat)
Yesterday I made it with just the coconut extract, 1 oz. of real coconut and some vanilla extract. 1 piece was 70 calories and that's a big piece. (1/8 of a oblong cake pan.)DH put his over a piece of butter cake with cool whip, I put my old standard on it, FF Cool whip and Fiber One.
P.S. Be sure to always add the fruit, pumpkin, etc last. That has to be folded in after it doubles/triples in volume or the recipe will flop!





Pineapple Fluff (8 servings @ 80 calories each)
Put can of Pineapple and dry milk in refrigerator night before to chill. Put large bowl and beaters in freezer night before. Make the Knox mixture 1st and chill it down slightly so it doesn't heat up the other ingredients.
20 oz. can crushed Pineapple
1 1/3 cup dry milk (92 grams)
2/3 cup Bulk Splenda
1 tsp. Coconut Extract
2 packages unflavored Gelatin (Knox)
Soften Knox in ½ cup cold water, add ½ cup boiling water and mix until dissolved. Set aside.
Drain Pineapple, set aside (fold in last)
Reserve juice in measuring cup, add water to make one cup if necessary.
In a large bowl mix juice, Splenda and coconut extract on low 1 minute or until it stops splattering. Turn up mixer on high and beat until foamy, adding Knox mixture a little at a time. Beat until doubled in size or top of bowl. ( 5-7 minutes, can take longer if it’s not cold enough)
Fold in drained pineapple and spread out in a 7x 9 covered container. Refrigerate until set.
You can make all kinds of flavors:
Cup of left-over coffee and unsweetened cocoa
Almond Extract and unsweetened cocoa
Lemon extract/juice
Applesauce and Maple extract/cinnamon
Pumpkin and Pumpkin pie spices

Hello Golden ladies.....
I'm a bit wet, but I have survived the night....I guess. There were tornadoes to the left and to the right, in back and in front....but other than a lot of flooding and high winds, everything survived.......I guess. Several of the out buildings are flooded, I had to rescue the lawn mower....it was in knee deep water, and move it to higher ground. All in all...considering what some others in the midwest went through, we had it pretty good. But the water continues to rise, and more rain expected tonight.

Diet remains the same, about 800 calories....not much you can eat at that amt of calories. Looks like trying to stay under 1200 calories doesn't leave much room for very much excitment.

Yesterday & today: 60 ounces fluids, 4 ounces turkey, green beans, and 3 program meals.

Exercise: Yesterday: 30 min on recumbant cross trainer....12 hours worrying
Exercise: Today: 35 Min. recumbant cross trainer....40 min. walking

Exercise totals for last week: 6 hours 25 min. Hope to do as well this week.

to all

Fun? Got chewed out by my DD because I'm closed minded and a Baptist. Heres the deal, my birthday is coming up and she wants to buy for my birthday present an appointment about getting my body tested with some machine that tells you what your body is missing. I can't remember what it's called, some natural holistic electroid durmal screening or something like that. I told her I didn't want to do it, I am perfectly healthy. That's when I was told modern medicines were all drugs, I was closed minded and a Baptist. I didn't know all Baptist were cloned together in the close minded group. Anybody heard of this type of screening?

3 slices low cal bread
2 egg whites
vanilla
cinnamon
2 T. Vanilla soy milk
