Dear Diary,

I had carrot cake again last night after dinner.  I don’t usually have dessert unless it’s carrot cake, so my bf suggested I try Jamie Eason’s carrot cake protein bar recipe from her website (Recipe video by Jamie: .  Then I asked what he was doing on her website…..ah, men.  But if you need motivation go to her website.  She looks amazing! 

So I had a healthy dinner, sausasage with low fat dressing caesar salad (no croutons or cheese) and blackberries.  I also had my protein shake and finally do not have sore muscles!

This morning I decided to weigh myself…and I’m at 163lbs!  Not bad, not bad.  And that was after a breakfast of 2 eggs, 1 toast, coffee and blueberries and black berries.  Oh, and I’m bloated since I got a visit from Aunt Flo.  So I’m going to try the carrot cake bar thing from Jamie’s website next week and give a review.

Jamie Eason’s “Oh Baby!” Carrot Cake Protein Bar

Non-fat no-stick spray
1 cup oat flour (ground oatmeal found in the health section of your grocery store)
2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp allspice (optional – more like spice cake)
3 egg whites
¾ cup Splenda
½ cup fat free Ricotta cheese
2 4 oz. jars or packs of baby food carrots (instead of shredded carrots)
2 scoops vanilla whey protein (look for a low sugar, low fat and low carb variety)
1 cup quick cooking oats (optional for added carbs and energy)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 x 8 pyrex dish with non-stick butter spray.

In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. In a medium bowl, mix egg whites, Splenda, ricotta and baby food until well combined. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and mix well. Finally, fold in the quick cooking oats (optional) and stir until just combined.

Pour batter into the pyrex dish and spread evenly. Bake 25 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool and cut into 16 pieces – 4 x 4.
