Cheater Cheesecake

The cheesecake in this photo has approximately 500,000 calories and grams of fat.

When it’s just you, and you need a fix, try this:

1/4 cup bran buds

1/4 cup honey greek yogurt

1 cup fresh blueberries (or fruit of choice)

Mix well.  Eat with a spoon.

The bran bud “crust” has 60 calories, 8 grams of fibre, 2 grams of protein, 150 mg of sodium, less than a gram of fat and no cholesterol.   The yogurt is 60 calories, 4.5 grams of protein and no fat. (This will vary depending on your brand.) The fruit  values depend on what you are using.

Who is going to argue with all the protein, dairy, fibre and fresh fruit?  Not me.  And your body will thank your healthy choices.
