When I crave a warm dessert, I cut up an apple sprinkle a little cinnamon and stevia on it and microwave it until the apples soften. The smell of the apples and cinnamon are great and I feel like I am having apple pie - without the calories!

I get happy just thinking about warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream. I just tell myself LATER. I can choose to eat fattening foods, but I have to plan them and track them and not eat impulsively and mindlessly. Knowing I CAN have that warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream later keeps me from feeling deprived. 224
My goal is to create a healthy lifestyle for years to come. Life can't be all salads and cottage cheese. I rarely choose to eat high-calorie foods while I'm trying to lose weight, but knowing I could if I wanted to keeps me from an unbalanced all-or-nothing state of mind.
I love pecan pie! Yummy! But, pecan pie is extremely high in calories. I've been making blueberry pies of late and they are amazingly delicious and only 167 calories!! There are berry cream pies too which are even lower in calories. In the mood for pie? Make a fresh berry pie and enjoy!!
