If you are anything like me, you love your desserts and your sweets
And a piece of fruit or handful of raisins does not fool my cravings
I usually wind up having that chocolate after my fruit !!
The idea behind this challenge is to not go cold turkey giving up our treats but to replace them with a lower calorie, lower sugar, lower fat, healthier version and ease our way into learning to do with less of them or maybe even eventually living without them.
Three Rules to This Challenge:
1. Your treat has to be 200 calories or less
2. You have to post either the recipe or the name of the food product you chose
(so we can all try them
3. At least twice a week you have to replace a higher calorie treat / snack with your lower calorie one
Here is my (very) old Weight Watchers recipe:
1 cup of your favorite lowfat cottage cheese
1 fresh small banana
Sugar Free Strawberry Preserves 2/3 tablespoons ( 10 calories each)
Use whatever type of fancy plate or cup you have, place your cottage cheese on the plate
first, slice the banana over the cottage cheese. Warm your strawberry preserve in the microwave and then drizzle it over your cottage cheese & banana.
Add up your calories and you may have a few left to add cool whip on top!!
