Healthy Eat Week, Day 3

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Day 3!  Still excited?  Feelin' good?  I know that I'm feeling VERY proud that I'm still going strong and don't even honestly feel like I've been dieting.  During the day, I've stuck to lots of fruits and veggies to snack on, make sure I have at least 2 servings of dairy and have my protein kick off in the morning with some scrammbled egg whites and lean ham and cheese.  Keeps me feeling full longer, and leave my big meal for dinner....and dessert!  Speaking of dessert, I want to share with you a recipe to help you cure that sweet tooth!  I know while I was making it, I felt like it wasn't really going to even touch my craving...but was defaintly proven wrong with the first bit alone.  So here we go again....grab those aprons & hold on to those chef hats, we're gunna get cookin' up somethin' nice and sweet!
