Flourless Lemon Glazed Cake

by GettingFreedom on January 15, 2013

One of my goals for the new year is to lose weight.  To do so, I’m hoping to change up my diet and incorporate exercise into my weekly routine.

Last week, I reluctantly started doing a juice cleanse which is proving to be far easier than I ever anticipated!  Initially I was going to do a juice fast {only juice for all 3 meals}, but that’s proven to be difficult with birthdays, appreciation lunches and an impromptu girls night out.  These are moments that don’t happen regularly, and I wanted to celebrate a little.  I’ve only eaten one meal a day with juice the other 2 meals.  I wish I could tell you how much weight I’ve lost–but I don’t own a bathroom scale! :)

Yesterday was my husband’s birthday.  We’ve longed toyed with the idea of easing into a gluten free lifestyle.  Since I wanted to be careful with what I was eating too, I decided to try my hand at a flourless cake.  And since lemon is his all time favorite, the Flourless Lemon Glazed Cake was born.

Don’t let the ingredients deter you.  No one will be able to tell!
