I have a problem. I am trying to trim away about 10 pounds, and I find it impossible because I crave cheese and carbs all the time! There is something so comforting about a big bowl of cheesy pasta, quesadilla, or pizza. Salads do not give me the same satisfaction (however I do feel better in the long run!).
I have never had an issue with weight before because I have always been active, but the older I get the harder it is to stay trim (it's because I don't care as much about my out appearance like I did when I was younger).
But now that I have gained a few extra pounds (and have been eating garbage), I have notice my energy level has dropped. My clothes don't fit right (and they are uncomfortable), and frankly I just don't feel good. So I am going to lose this weight for me.
The solution: Make "skinny" versions of my favorites so I don't feel deprived and binge eat. This Skinny Broccoli Cheese Casserole is a DELICIOUS healthy version of the classic Broccoli Cheese Casserole (even Nolan approved it). What makes it skinny? I substitute broth for cream, and cauliflower rice for regular rice. It's a surprisingly easy recipe to make, and it solves my cheesy comfort food cravings!Print
