Cheesecake for Under 200 Calories

Ever wished we lived in a perfect world where dessert could be consumed for lunch? I suppose with this recipe you could keep that dream without losing your waistline.


This recipe was inspired by a Vlog I saw on Youtube. This girl is super creative and used cottage cheese to make her version. I've used cottage cheese in cheesecake before, but it's always been accompanied by cream cheese! I've also made ricotta and cream cheese cheesecake before, which is equally delicious. This is a very light version of those previous recipes. It makes 1 serving (which is 3 muffin molds) and it's about 150 calories.

Noodle Free Chicken Lo Mein


 Low carb diets are difficult for me because I can't have the pasta. Recently I made chicken pad thai using Daikon Radish instead of noodles and it was fantastic! It greatly inspired me to try out lo mein. This dish is ordinarily made using spaghetti noodles, so instead I decided to use cabbage. This isn't a zero calories meal, but it's a great deal healthier than authentic Chinese food. I can't wait to try it with shrimp or beef next time!

Absence

Hello everyone! I've been a little absent from the blogging world as of late, other than a few simple and quick recipes I've posted. I'm not here to apologize like a lot of bloggers do about not commenting on every single one of your posts because it's literally killing me to read some of them.

I think I had somewhat mentioned that I'm doing a little diet. I plan on doing said diet until the beginning of October, although I wont get into details. Basically, I'm eating very clean and in a smaller amount than I usually eat. I've restricted my diet to fresh and healthy foods that fuel my body and fill me with nutrients. Although I'm doing great (down 10 lbs!) I've had to cut out the things I love:

Chicken Taco Zucchini Boats


Part of my new low calorie lifestyle definitely includes leaner meats such as ground chicken versus ground beef. Beef is still great in moderation, but for these "tacos" the ground chicken was a delicious and lean choice. This meal was very filling as well as satisfying ^_^
