My blog is making me fat! I am always thinking about food... What am I making for dinner? What new recipes did my blog friends post? What produce is in season? What dessert sounds good? Ahhh!!!
I have put on a solid 10 pounds this summer, yikes! School starts in just a couple weeks and I am afraid my teacher clothes will be tight. I need to lose around 60 pounds in the next two weeks! Oh alright, I will settle for losing the 10 summer pounds I put on, hows that?
- Breakfast- a piece of fruit and a handful of Crunchy Corn Bran cereal (my absolute favorite cereal)
- Lunch- Soup or salad
- Dinner- Lean meats and vegetables
- Baked goods must CEASE NOW. I will only bake to give away!
- Increase exercise
My sister-in-law Cheryl has always been skinny but is a perpetual dieter (it makes sense... constant dieting=skinny... but people like me never seem to catch on). Cheryl has talked about this diet Jello Whipped Cream dessert throughout the years but I never thought to try it. What was I thinking?!! This dessert is SO good and it really satisfies that sweet tooth urge! At around 20 calories for a 1/2 cup it is practically guilt free as well!
1 (3.9 ounce) package of sugar-free Jello gelatin or pudding (pick your favorite flavor)
1 (8 ounce) tub of the lowest calorie Whipped Cream or Cool Whip you can find
Empty the jello powder directly into the tub of whipped cream and stir well. Put the whipped cream tub back in the fridge for a few hours or overnight to allow the jello crystals to be absorbed.
Note- If you use Jello gelatin the dessert will be foam like. If you use Jello pudding the dessert will be mousse like. This picture really shows the difference in texture between the gelatin and pudding, see how the brown chocolate pudding looks thicker? I had a difficult time taking a picture because someone kept getting in the way...
