However there are sweets you can eat daily and still make your goal. Last post had one and here's another.
- 1 Weight Watchers Latte Bar (90 Calories, 1 point)
- 6 tablespoons of fat free Cool Whip (45 calories)
- 2 bite size Heath Bar mini's (86 calories)
Place your Cool Whip in a bowl and sprinkle with the Heath crumbs. Unwrap your frozen treat bar and proceed to dip each bite in the candy bar topping. It's not only delicious, it is fun to eat. And tastes decadent, all for a mere 221 calories.
Typically I'm not a fan of fat free products, but there are some tolerable ones out there. For use as a topping--not mixed into a recipe-- I do believe I prefer the taste of the fat free Cool Whip over the reduced and regular fat ones.
And choosing the fat free Cool Whip allows me to save my fat calories for healthier fat options--like good old peanut butter.
Hmmm...now I'm thinking...I love peanut butter pie. Wonder what some peanut butter mixed in with some fat free Cool Whip would taste like? Peanut butter mousse? Think I'll give that a try soon. And if I sprinkled it with a few graham cracker crumbs it might even pass as peanut butter chiffon pie. Wait...if I add some fat free cream cheese--and the ideas keep coming.
Being a foodie and dieting can work--we just have to be a bit more creative, but isn't that part of what being a foodie is all about? Working with food, dreaming about recipes is as important to a foodie as eating.
We don't have to give up the foods we love and enjoy to lose or maintain losses--we can figure out how to fit them in with a little thought and practice.
