PALEO BANANA PUDDING CHEESECAKE

 

The LOML and I are still on the “Always Hungry” diet.

We are proud to announce that he has lost over 30 pounds and I’ve lost 20 pounds give or take a little depending on the day.

With all the different diets I have attempted I’ve learned a couple of things about myself.

                             #1 I am not a good dieter. I cheat a lot and I miss chocolate every day!

#2 I am no fun to hang around when I’m on a diet.

#3 I’m not creative enough to come up with new recipes.

But, to be very honest, this diet doesn’t bother me. We’ve been on this diet for about 7 months and I don’t feel like I’m giving up anything. And the LOML is pretty great with trying new recipes. He really enjoys cooking, thank goodness, because it’s not my favorite thing to do.

We recently tried this recipe that Son #1’s girlfriend gave us and we really liked it. (Thank you Brianna!)
