We all love a berry cheesecake don’t we so this guest post from the lovely Kelly is perfect to fill that gap! Just looking at the picture of this deconstructed cheesecake is making my mouth water!
If you follow Slimming World, Weight Watchers (WW), Noom or any other weight loss plan you can usually count this as free or easily within your allowances, of course always check your plan for advice.
In recipes that need quark, there are a few simple things you can do to ensure it tastes good. Quark doesn’t have much flavour so ensure you flavour the dish well. In this berry deconstructed cheesecake, the Options white chocolate is perfect for adding taste.
Quark is available in most large supermarkets now and even stocked in Aldi and Lidl. You can usually find it near the soft cheeses in a tub similar to that you would buy cottage cheese in.
Due to the low-fat content of quark, it easily splits if heated too much or has hot water or hot liquid added to it. Be careful and stir in gradually and you should be ok if you are making a hot meal with it.
Comfort eating this deconstructed cheesecake
It is easy when you are trying to lose weight to fall into the trap of comfort eating when you are feeling down. Finding healthier snack alternatives can help you avoid weight gain.
You do not need to just snack on fruit and vegetables to be healthy, there are so many other alternatives. This frozen berry deconstructed cheesecake is good as it is comfort food but not too unhealthy either. Of course, you can also use fresh berries if you’d prefer.
If you find that you are regularly feeling down and snacking then maybe you need to address this as possible depression and consider seeing your GP. We all have struggled every now and then so it really isn’t something to be ashamed of.
Another option instead of eating at all could be to find something else to do instead of eating when you are feeling down. Give it some thought and see if you can come up with any strategies to help yourself.
