Skinny Mini Cheesecake

After falling off the wagon and continually eating my weight in sweet foods, I knew something had to give. I need sweet treats like flowers need the sun. Don’t judge. I was trying to think of a dessert I could make with things I have in the cupboards that was not only low in calories but would feel naughty. Let’s be honest, a good pudding is a naughty pudding. My daughter came up to me asking for a biscuit. The “biscuits” we give her are the Heinz Baby Biscotti. The pack I grabbed today was chocolate, which she doesn’t have often. She offered me a bite, and to my surprise it was really good and turned quite creamy whilst eating. I thought they would make a great pie base. Mainly because they taste good but also because 3 biscottis are only 63 calories.

Queue lightbulb above my head. Cheesecake! I had exactly what I needed for a skinny no bake version for under 200 calories. My version uses light cream cheese and Greek yogurt to create a creamy cheesecake. Toss in a few other cupboard staples with the biscotti and you’ve got yourself a healthier cheesecake! Rather than making a standard size cheesecake and risk eating too much, because I would, I made individual ones. I used good sized ramekins which yield a big portion. Benefits of being low calorie, you can have a bigger portion. Thank you Naomi, credit goes to you for asking for a biscuit.

Pop’in Chicken

Dinner tonight is a twist on Fanta Chicken! Very yummy and filling. The orange tang almost made it taste like a Chinese! I inhaled this. Probably shouldn’t have but hey ho.

Fridge Raider

More of a fridge clear out, got to eat stuff before it goes off! 

Lunch is 3 small white baps with homemade tuna mayo and sweetcorn mix and some of what’s left of the salad olivier from Saturday. This wasn’t a healthy lunch at all, but could have been a lot worse. My issue lately isn’t unhealthy food but not stopping when I have a dessert or chocolate. To help with that, I’ve made a low cal dessert for tonight!

Lunch is a chili noodle bowl, pear and pepsi max! I also realised thanks to a friend that it actually says chili men noodles haha! I feel like I’m sitting in a sauna. A sauna surrounded my computers and work. Not ideal!

PB My Love

Good morning lovelies! Breakfast is porridge with natural peanut butter and sliced banana. Absolutely boiling in my office today, so I swapped my spicy chai tea for some grapefruit squash instead. #healthyeating #healthyliving #healthychoices #healthyhappyme #food #foodblogger #healthylivingblogger #weightloss #weightlossjourney #down71lbs #down5st1lbs #determinedtosucceed #breakfast

Skinny Beef Pie

Skinny Beef Pie - weightsandwhiskers.co.uk

One of my favourite pies is steak and ale. Unfortunately, its really not healthy eating friendly. A pub version of steak and ale pie with mash and peas can have you eating around 1,000 calories. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather not waste my calories on a pie! I was having a flick through my recipe books and got an idea for my own beef pie from the Hairy Bikers. They use pizza base mix instead of pastry – genius! I wasn’t too keen on their ingredients, so I switched it up for my own version of a skinny beef pie. I know, shocker isn’t it?

I already had some Quorn mince in the freezer, so I tossed out the beef from this beef pie. By all means, use extra lean beef mince or even turkey mince if you like.  I also didn’t want to use any sort of potato as the pizza base was going to make this quite a carby meal. So I swapped the ale for a flavourful thick beef stock and potatoes for cannellini beans. Each pie only clocks in at 318 calories and a massive 15g of protein. This can make up for the fact that this is a bit high in carbs. Every now and then you can allow an indulgent carby meal! Before attempting to make this dish I should let you know this is based off of 6 individual pies and you will need individual pie dishes. This is a time consuming dish due to making up the pizza base dough, so this may be best kept as a weekend meal or on a day where you have a free afternoon. Likewise, the pie filling can be made up in advance and put in the fridge.
