WW Recipe & Exercise Hacks

May 24, 2018


I have consistently been losing a minimum of 2 lbs per week and it definitely takes some creative thinking. I am typically a very basic cook, but my family loves my dishes. I'm not bragging, but my daughter says I make the best pasta and the best meatloaf in the world. LOL 


I have always loved sweets, probably because I was raised with them. I am older now and I am teaching my young daughter (in order to not fall into the same chubby trap I fell into as a child), that sweets or sugar filled desserts have no nutritional value, so they are just "treats" and we do not have them all the time. I am cutting back on my sugar as well and finding that I am not craving my favorite items as much -- like donuts, jellybeans, icecream...


I do have a few tricks to get me through those sweet attacks though. 





~Any box of fat free/sugar free pudding

~If it calls for 2 cups milk, I simply substitute one of the cups of milk for one cup of nonfat greek yogurt, and use one cup non fat milk. If it's the larger box calling for 3 cups milk, I use 1.5 cups milk and 1.5 cups nonfat greek yogurt. 

~The yogurt makes it creamy (I have found that these puddings can use less milk because they get watery).

~Optional, but you can add fresh fruit for zero points. 


~Strawberry Cheesecake Pudding, using the fat free/sugar free cheesecake pudding, follow above directions and add chopped strawberries drizzled with a homemade chocolate sauce (I like 1 tbsp dutch chocolate baking powder, 1 packet of stevia, and 1 tsp of nonfat milk). 

I don't even like cheescake, but I love this. 


PINK FLUFF (my Idaho Family Recipe fav) stay tuned... I'm working on the details.
