Pumpkin Souffle snack

In my never ending quest to eat more pumpkin – I tried this idea from Kath Eats

It’s like a quick and easy version of pumpkin custard.
1/2 cup (122 g) pumpkin
45 grams of egg whites (just under 1/4 cup)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 generous tsp brown sugar.

Mix well in a small bowl and microwave for 3-4 minutes until it is firms up all across the top. Of course, I had to top with a dollop of cranberry sauce.

I have to say that this is really tasty, especially on a cold day like today after 2.5 hours of shoveling!

    That looks good–and quick too!

    Lori, I was really fascinated by your statement on Mizfit’s about giving up low fat, and eating fat now. And you are being so successful. I wonder if you could talk about this a little more, or give a sample day’s menu.

    You might already have this info in your archives. I’ll dig into them later today. I am just a bit intrigued with this idea, because now I have ‘trained’ myself to eliminate fat in almost everything, and it is very hard for me to add it back in consciously. I say consciously because I know I still eat a few bars that have fat, and I drink half and half in my coffee. But when I am cooking, I am pretty scrupulous about removing fat…and I am not losing weight. I’m not hungry, though…

    Debby – I will do that this weekend and give my thoughts.

    It was hard to wrap my head around for sure.

    That does look good. I eat pumpkin in my oatmeal almost every morning.

    I wanted to thank you, Lori, for your support. You’ve been so kind and always have something ncie to say. Thank you especially for the hugs this week when I needed them most!
