This is the final week of challenges. These challenges will be lighter in volume but still high in the intensity. Today’s challenge (#3) is about turning an indulgence into something more reasonable.
Your assignment is to pick an item (food or drink) that is considered a treat because you tend to go overboard when you are around it. This can be something that you consider your weakness or it can be something that you believe you should have less of. For some people, this could be cookies. For others, it could be alcohol, pizza, chips, or pork. You are to take that item that you love (or overindulge in) and make it healthier.
Instructions: Name your indulgence. Then explain how you will make it healthier. If you don’t know how, do the research and share it with us. If you found a low-cal version of a meal, put the link in the comments. If it’s a product you discovered, you can tell us about it or put the link. If it’s something you made up, explain it to us in detail. Note: You cannot use an idea you found on this site. It has to be something that I haven’t told you.
Here’s an example of how you might comment: “I love candy bars. Even though I am sensible all day, I cannot resist a Snickers. But I did some research and I found a recipe for ___ that includes peanuts, cocoa, and almond butter. It tastes just like a Snickers but it’s healthier, creamier, etc. etc.”
Remember, this isn’t just about junk food. It could be a “healthy” item that you make unhealthy because you eat/drink to much of it. If that applies to you, respond with a way to fix that.
This assignment is due Friday.
What food or drink do you love? How will you make it healthier?
