Zucchini Bread almost tastes as good as Skinny
A friend of mine brought over zucchini from her garden and I decided to make zucchini bread and put it in the freezer for special occasions and when we have guests. The problem is that I froze all of them except one loaf. I indulged in two yummy pieces today. It tasted SO good! I had substituted applesauce for some of the oil in order to make it a little healthier. Well, I should of made it the same way because it was still loaded with points. I plugged in my recipe into the weight watcher website and one piece is 9 points!!! AAAHHH. No dinner for me! Today I feel depressed..like I totally cheated. Sucks, because the rest of the day I did just fine but then I went and ate 3/4 of my daily points in two little pieces of zucchini bread. Doesn't seem possible. I am going to have to hit the treadmill tonight and try to burn off at least one piece. However, it is a catch 22 because the more depressed/upset you are the less likely you are to want to work out. I have no motivation now!
I will overcome it! But DAMN IT...I am mad at myself. I must say though...I would challenge anyone to a zucchini bread cook off (even my sister in law Kimberly who is the world's best baker) because I am pretty sure that my recipe will kick anyone's butt!
