CHOCOLATE ORANGE YOGURT MOUSSE
The richness of Chocolate mousse at under 100 calories per serving. Prep time: ten minutes. Ingredients in bold.
0% fat Plain Greek Yogurt - to one cup in a small mixing bowl, add three tablespoons of
100% powdered cacao unsweetened chocolate, a teaspoon
vanilla extract, sprinkle of
salt - Sweeten to taste with your choice of
sweetener - I use one Tablespoon of real sugar, but most artificial sweeteners are fine, as well. I do not recommend Stevia for it - it may bite. Gently blend ingredients. DONE - At serving time, turn into three or four dessert dishes and top with
fresh orange zest and serve cool or at room temp.
The blend of flavors is a very exciting and tasty with a bit of black coffee or tea alongside - like water for chocolate indeed. And elegant evening thing, I think - when it is time to relax and enjoy - alone or with friends, it creates a special moment.
HALF MEASURE FOR FULL MEASURE OF PLEASURE
This is not really a diet item, but an approach to making your diet WORK - Whatever it is, just halve the quantity of it - not all at once, but pick a starting point - right in front of you - and just start out cutting all you eat in half - if you normally eat two of a thing, eat one instead. And this includes sides and condiments - not just the main items and desserts. Example: at the 120 calories a tablespoon of butter or oil, use a teaspoon of it instead and WIN. If you usually have two burgers have one - with tasty beef as low fat as possible and stick to fresh veggies for toppings and watch the mayo - if you must have some, just use half of what you'd normally do. 0% FAT GREEK YOGURT works like crazy, for anything creamy - sweeten it or spice it , or turn it into a blancmange, but it works and is probiotic at 100calories a cup....a few tablespoons with chives or other herbs for your salad is almost calorie-free and yet realy tasty and supercreamy.
It's so easy - you can charm yourself into half the calories in this pleasurable way, you will lose weight and be able to keep it off. Of course a diet diary is smart, if you it works for you - it can make new dieters a bit crazy - a casual, but honest, mental tally might be easier at frst; make notes till you are into your stride in it about the food and the exercise:
NOTE: Increasing mobility is key and that way you feel better immediately and so are likely to stay with your plan.
HYDRATE FOR WEIGHT LOSS AND LOW PAIN
Keep water handy - plain, filtered, or add a squirt of lemon juice - just a bit so that when you taste it you do not want it sweetened. My carafe is old and hold exactly one quart, so I know what I have taken. A dieting body will lose some overeating urges with the waters, and it helps slough off the waste produced when we diet. Since you may be exercising more, the key to success is sipping a bit of water every few minutes.
