Oven Baked Bacon

This is probably a dumb recipe to add here, but I keep losing my written one lol. I don’t know why I keep forgetting how to make it, it’s so freaking easy /facepalm

Oven Baked Bacon

Cook Time 20 mins

Equipment

  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper or foil

Ingredients
  

  • 1 package bacon

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400ยบF
  • Line baking sheet with parchment or foil
  • Place strips of bacon, side by side, on baking sheet
  • Bake in oven for 20 minutes
  • Cool on cooling racks or paper towel lined plates (place paper towel between each layer to soak up the extra grease)

Notes

No flipping necessary, but you are welcome to! Just be extra careful not to splash the grease!

Faux Light Mocha Frappuccino Drinks

This is something I came up with on the fly. I find it super delicious (but now cannot have caffeine. I might try decaf though…) I had a four pack of light mocha fraps. I cleaned the bottles and lids, removed the labels, and removed the printed date with acetone (works on any sticky residue leftover from the labels, too!)

Faux Light Mocha Frappuccino Drinks

Servings 2 9.5oz bottles

Ingredients
  

  • 1 c your favorite coffee
  • 2 packets Splenda
  • 2 tbsp sugar free chocolate syrup
  • milk

Instructions
 

  • Brew one cup of coffee
  • While still hot, mix in chocolate syrup and Splenda
  • Divide mixture between 2- 9.5oz Frappuccino bottles (about a third of the bottle will be taken up)
  • Fill the rest of the bottle with your milk until about an inch from the rim
  • Chill for a couple hours or more
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • These settle much more easily than the original Frappuccino drinks
  • 2 packets of Splenda = 4tsp of regular sugar
  • Mix it up and use your senses! Switch out the chocolate or add to it with a little peppermint, caramel, hazelnut, or vanilla!

Weekly Weigh In #1

Today I was 336lbs (down from 377). Still struggling to get enough protein in. My new goal for protein is a minimum of 70g, but I am only managing 40-60g. :'(

This week I injured myself accidentally so I missed about two days worth of working out. I work out every morning before I get Elli (my daughter) up for school for roughly 20-40 minutes. I do it depending on what my day looks like… for instance, I spent a couple days doing a lot of shopping and I knew going with my mom, I would be doing a LOT of walking so I only spent about 20 minutes on those days.

At any rate, I am keeping my caloric intake to under 800 calories and trying to fill those calories with protein and good fats. I am struggling. I still can’t eat a whole lot of foods, so I am re-learning how to eat and what works with my tummy now.ย Fun fact: my stomach doesn’t tolerate cheese.ย Any. Cheese. Which is sad for someone whose motto used to be, “cheese is good”.
