I seemed to have magically put on 5 pounds over the holidays. Really don’t know how it happened. It’s like I woke up one morning and had trouble buttoning my jeans.
Maybe it’s got something to do with my eating
and drinking everything in front of me for the past 6 weeks.
I don’t know about you, but I just can’t give up certain foods when it comes to losing weight. I tell myself it’s all about compromise and moderation. We still have to live and enjoy life, and food is one of the simple pleasures that we all enjoy.
One of my weaknesses is potatoes. Cheesy. Creamy. Potatoes. I had a craving for some scalloped potatoes, but wanted to be mindful of the recent pact with myself to practice this “compromise and moderation” thing.
So I used almond milk instead of whole milk or heavy cream and low-fat cheese. It didn’t affect the taste, and was actually pretty darn awesome. There was my compromise, without the guilt.
This recipe is crazy simple and easy to prepare. These skinny scalloped potatoes are creamy and delicious… if you’re in the mood for comfort food without the guilt, you must give this a try!
