Need Some Anti-Cupcake Weight Food!

I've been making cupcakes for a month or more now, and somehow a large portion of the weight I had lost has sneaked back on! OH NO! so I have been getting back on my stationery bike, and riding 20 minutes in the morning... but I'm finding I need some GOOD FOOD ideas... I've added salads back into my daily routine... but am starting to experiment with dressings to find a less fattening one, not totally fat free, but also less acidy that some in the stores. Here is one I found on a blog that I follow: The Gracious Pantry and in case you'd like to see more of her recipes, here is a link to her blog! This is one I'll be trying this week.

  • Pinch of salt to taste
