So this has been a craaaaazy month. Remind me never to go back to school as a grownup again. Oh right-if I finish this jig I won’t NEED to. Ha! If only I knew at 21 or 22 what I wanted to be when I grew up. Speaking of being a grownup- I had my first mammogram yesterday. A few years earlier than the recommended age but better safe than sorry. So-why did NONE of my girlfriends who’ve had this done EVER tell me how much a mammogram SUCKS? It is a titty twisting, NOT titillating experience that’s really a laboratory lesson on how to make panini sandwiches out of your ta-Ta’s!!! I had no idea-I seriously thought I’d just go in there topless and wave my arms around for a scanner or something. Like a machine in a government building that scans for metal. Boy was I ignorant of what it actually means to proactively take care of my girls! Now-I’m a size C-cup, almost a B. Not exactly huge but not really itty bitty either. So I asked the technician-this cute little older lady-what do my A-Cup friends do when they get their pictures taken? Cause I’ve got a good handful to grab onto and it STILL hurt. I can only imagine how excruciating it is for women with smaller frames!!! Anyway. Enough. Well I went home and complained to Jim about how much it hurt. He kindly offered to help make “them” feel better and I told him to back off the boobies!!! Anyway. Well anyway. I haven’t gotten a call back from them so I’m thinking everything was normal.
I made brownies by the way. YES I said BROWNIES-this TLS devoted chick was fixated on dessert in a big way. Living a healthy, low-glycemic lifestyle doesn’t mean giving up the things you love. But it does open up a whole new world of delicious healthy flavors to play with. And that’s what I did here with these beautiful Sweet Potato Brownies! Sweet Potatoes are great-compared to other basic foods the sweet potato has so much more fiber content, complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamin A and potassium, and vitamin C!!! And if you are going to cheat and bake and eat brownies-this is a healthier way to do it than traditional brownies. And these are grain and dairy free for those who need it, and for those who don’t-well trust me these are yummy. I can honestly say I’ve never heard of Sweet Potato Brownies before TLS. But you see I follow this Crossfitter and Paleo Cook chic named Julie Bauer-and I frequently look to her for inspiration. And boy did I find it. These babies were SCRUMPTIOUS. And they were GONE. In like 5 minutes. I only had 1 of them!! Rose, Rusty and Jim ate the rest. So I’m just going to make more, that’s all there is to it. End of story.
