I´m glad you all liked my Brigadeiro Tutorial :)
Oh, and by the way – Maggie was sweet enough to remember me something I should´ve told you after giving y´all the recipe:
Actually, in Brazil, brigadeiros are served in a small ball shape, a bit like Katie´s Fudge Babies. They´re normally covered with white sugar or sprinkles. They look AND taste amazing! Let me show you:
Ah, and did I tell you there are thousands of different kinds of brigadeiros? We have white chocolate ones, cashew nut ones… Basically anything you want ;)
(This photo was taken at my little sister´s 3rd birthday party. Cute!)
Anyhow. I´ll be short and sweet :)
~3 tbsp of cottage cheese with a sliced apple
1/2 package of Oats N´Honey granola bar
Salad: lettuce, grated beets and carrots, sliced heart-of-palms, soy meat, ricotta cheese crumbles and mustard sauce
Turkey Breast Sandwich with White Cheese, grated carrots and beets on a Whole Wheat Bread
Fresh orange juice!
Diet Fro-Yo with pineapple chunks and blueberries
And, yes – I hung out with grandpa and my cousins yesterday. Btw – I tried grandpa´s melted banana sandwich (cheese+banana slices) and I completely LOVED IT :D
Cottage cheese in a container (1 tbsp left) with 1/2 sliced apple, plus the rest on the side ;)
In the mix: grated carrots, sliced heart-of-palms, turkey breast and white cheese “crumbles” and pineapple chunks, with mustard sauce.
(They were outta lettuce!)
I loved the pineapple addition, though. LOOOVE fresh pinepple!
Tomato slices, steamed spinach, baked sweet potato, 3 tbsp of beans, grated carrots, 1 hard-boiled egg and a slice of baked pumpkin
T´was good :)
Before I leave, I just wanted to share two things:
1- Tomorrow´s the beggining of my Easter Break! YAY! So, yeah. I´ll be travelling until Sunday. But I´ll keep taking my pics, and I see a giant recap in my future ;)
2- It´s so funny to hear what women think. Today, while I was showering (after working out), a woman started talking to me about the fact that she had forgotten her socks. We started chatting, and she began talking about her weight loss issues. She told me she had already eaten whole wheat bread at breakfast, brown rice at lunch and two soy biscuits (or something like that) at snack time, so she felt horrible and fat. Oh, and she told me the only thing that makes you fat is wheat, too. I mean… WTH? I don´t know why eating brown rice, whole wheat bread and soy biscuits on the same day is a bad thing. OMG… I was so lucky I was on my way, leaving ;)
Oh, well. One last thing: I´ll miss you guys! Thanks so much for the lovely comments – you rock!
Have a great week, and a terrific Easter Break/weekend!
