Americans buy 2.7 billion boxes of cereal each year, and 92% of American households have bought a box of it at least once this year. Let’s face it, cereal is awesome. Most of us have eaten it every single day since we were old enough to put solid food in our mouths. It’s a comfort food that mom fed us—even if we frequently dumped most it over our heads as toddlers.
Thanks to the warmer weather, many of us are trying to pack our overly voluminous backsides into skimpier clothes that fit, well, last year…or maybe two years ago. Here’s the good news: there are no added calories or sodium to spoil your party, bloat you with water weight, or make you feel hesitant about donning that suit at the beach or pool! The food in the picture is shown with a piece of whole grain sprouted toast.
What if I told you it was possible to have a banana split that was actually GOOD for you? Guess what—it is possible! It’s also pretty easy too. We will also be making our own chocolate syrup that is entirely sugar-free, ridiculously easy to make, and super yummy too! Can this day get any better? Well, maybe it can—perhaps a hole in the ceiling will open up and few million dollars, a pair of unicorns, a rainbow, and a calorie-free pizza will mysteriously drop into my living room.
This ready-to-eat protein cookie dough is a cheat food I have eaten several times rather than going out and really cheating on my lifestyle. Note: I don’t use the 4 letter ‘D’ word—diet!. This is a cheat food that is not entirely a cheat food, so you don’t have to feel too guilty after eating it. Well, not as guilty as indulging in a slice of pecan pie anyway…
