This week also saw a lot of baking for various fundraisers. I find charitable baking really satisfying as I'm able to fulfill my urge to bake without taking in all the calories of said baked goods. Nice! Since I was busy baking, I didn't stick to my meal plan. In this case, it was a blessing in disguise because I happened upon this recipe for cauliflower marranca and decided to experiment. So, so yummy! I added chickpeas for protein, which was great for the boys and I, but also sauteed a quick pan of shrimp for hubby, since he's really not into non-meat meals.

And to finish off, healthy banana splits, made of half a sliced banana with whipped peanut butter sandwiched between the slices, vanilla Greek yogurt, fresh raspberries, and just a drizzle of chocolate sauce. We had these for lunch one day, too, and added some vanilla almond crunch cereal on top. Boys loved them.
