Sugar Free Saturday – Melanie’s Medley’s Vegetable Cream Cheese

A couple of weeks ago, I was craving a bagel with veggie cream cheese. I rarely eat cream cheese (I just as rarely eat bagels!), so a splurge once in a while doesn’t bother me, but cream cheese is so incredibly unhealthy, that even a one time splurge gives me pause. But the craving was so strong…

Enter Melanie’s Medley’s Vegetable Cream Cheese! With no artificial ingredients, and NO SUGAR, I was excited to give this one a try!

In comparison to Philly’s Vegetable Cream cheese, the differences are VAST… Philly’s does only have 1 gram of sugar, but it also only contains 2 grams of protein… Melanie’s has no sugar and boasts 8 grams of protein – a huge difference!

This is a great example of how you can still enjoy those splurges and make them count, and work for you.. not against you!

Have you ever tried this?

Tasty Tuesday – Roasted Cauliflower Mash

How do you feel about cauliflower? It’s not my absolute favorite, but I don’t dislike it. It can actually be used to make healthier versions of many things, including pizza crust, and this featured recipe of Cauliflower Mash.

This is a pretty simple recipe that will fill you up without weighing you down. It is a fantastic choice for Diabetics because it’s non-starchy.
