Smartcakes for Smart Weight Loss 0
Admit it. How often have you gone to the fridge or pantry to search for that elusive, low-calorie dessert? A couple of times a week? Several times a day? That perfect item never seems to be there, but that can change now. Smartcakes are a dieter’s dream if you have a sweet tooth but cannot afford the calories and sugar that come in the sweets you crave.
Amazingly Low-Calorie Cupcake
Most types of packed snack cakes have about 200 to 400 calories per package, and most cakes have about 120 calories per ounce. Smartcakes have only a fraction of these calories. Each one has a miniscule 38 calories. The entire bag has 76 calories, and they have absolutely no sugar. What more is there to say besides, “Yes, please!”
What kind of cake are you craving? Smartcakes come in these favorite flavors.
- Chocolate: classic and satisfying.
- Lemon Cream: with real lemon extract, and sweet-tart like a lemon bar
- Raspberry Cream: sweet and tart, like juicy berries
- Vanilla Latte: like the beverage but in a form you can devour without guilt
- Cinnamon: spicy and with cinnamon and vanilla
Their nutritional information and flavors may be unbelievable, but the ingredients of Smartcakes are nothing outlandish. Smartcakes are made from real ingredients such as eggs, pure vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon, real herbs and spices, and olive oil. They are gluten-free and sweetened with natural monk fruit.
Smartcakes are like cupcakes in that they come in single-serving packages. There is no need to take a sliver of a whole cake and pray that you do not come back for seconds. Just open up and enjoy the entire package. You will still be at a reasonable number of calories.
Cake All Day
Start to finish, Smartcakes can be there for you all day. A couple of cakes instead of a high-fat, sugary breakfast pastry or muffin can be your breakfast on its own or with some fruit or a protein boost such as an egg or cottage cheese. Snacks and desserts are ready anytime, and if you need a quick lunch, you can always spread some peanut butter or cream cheese on a few Smartcakes.Smartcakes are an example of those great discoveries that make you realize, “Yes, I can do this!” when it comes to weight loss. Try them all, and see how you can make Smartcakes work for your weight loss.
Protein Parfaits for Weight Loss 0
Parfaits have so much going for them. They are elegant yet easy to prepare, perfectly portion-able, great-tasting, and packed with different flavors and textures. Where, then, do they go so wrong?
Parfaits can be packed with sugars and other carbs, along with extra fats, when they come from drive-thrus or sit-down restaurants. Make your own, on the other hand, and you can get a high-protein, low-carb breakfast, snack, or dessert that makes you happy all day.
A fruit and yogurt parfait sounds pretty healthy, as though you are getting a dose of fresh, high-fiber fruit, and some high-protein yogurt. The truth is not usually quite so rosy. The fruit may be dried or not too generous, and the yogurt is often sugar-sweetened. Add some sugary granola or cookie crumbs and some jam or fruit-flavored syrup, and that parfait is not too healthy.
Perfect Parfait Ingredients
There are plenty of healthy ingredients to build any flavor parfait that suits your mood. You’ll need a thick, creamy ingredient to start, and better if it is high in protein. It could be plain regular or Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, or tofu You could also use any flavor of Protein Pudding, ranging from Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry, to Caramel and Mocha.
Next, fresh fruit is a good idea, as it adds fiber, antioxidants, and sweetness. Any kind of berries, diced melon, apples, or pears, sliced banana, or tropical fruit such as kiwi or mango works well.
Then, something crunchy is a must for most parfait-lovers. While sugary cookie crumbs, cake pieces, and granola are over the top when it comes to nutrition, Protein Cakes and Cookies and Protein Cereal are available to deliver protein and crunch without many carbs. Chocolate chip and chocolate cookies, all kinds of cakes, and granola, cinnamon cereal, and oatmeal, chocolate cereal are all possibilities. Nuts and peanuts also work beautifully, and add protein and healthy fats.
Finally, what about something fun? Chocolate Pecan Clusters with or without caramel, for example, turn any parfait into something special without adding sugar. Or, Peanut Butter Spreads in all kinds of fun flavors, such as chocolate, graham cracker, cinnamon, and more can make your parfait super decadent.
A parfait is something to celebrate, but why not keep it diet-friendly? With plenty of low-carb, high-protein products to choose from, you can have the parfait of your dreams: tasty and guilt-free.
