Low Calorie Strawberry Shortcake

I have a confession to make.   There is something I haven’t told you for the last two months.   It has been my little secret.   I was kind of embarrassed to admit it.   But here goes…deep breath…I’m dieting.   Gah! I know I should have told you.   Maybe I could have gotten a support group going to encourage me.   There is something humbling about admitting that you have allowed yourself to grow a bloggy butt and haven’t been disciplined in your eating choices or your exercise.

But here I am…again…dieting.   I hate that I can be the most disciplined person you know or the biggest glutton in America.   There is no balance with me and I despise that about myself.   So I am attempting to make some life changes again. Blah!   Why can’t I just be skinny and live on Oreos, Twix, and icecream?   I just don’t get it. Boo!

Anywho…back to the reason for this post.   I have a sweet tooth.   Like an uncontrollable, animal instinct towards sweets.   If you told me I had to give up sweets altogether I would just say “pull the plug, I’m done!.”   So in my attempts to lose weight and still maintain some sweet joy in my day I am always looking for low cal sweet treats.   I must share with you my latest addiction.   100 Calorie Pack Strawberry Shortcake. For 125 calories this is quite filling and a great summer sweet alternative to say a large bowl of icecream with hot fudge and Oreos…not that I have ever eaten that!

All you need is the 100 Calorie Hostess Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake cut into fourths…

and a 1/2 cup of cut up berries.   I also add a little bit of Truvia to sweeten it up.

It is so yummy.   When you need a little chocolate fix try the 100 Calorie Hostess Chocolate Cupcakes with the berries.   Oh so yummy!

Ok so now that the cat is out of the bag. I WOULD ABSOLUTELY love you if you shared some low calorie recipes or sweet treats with me.   Puhleeeease! Help a chubby sister out.
