And so it begins … today.. our Walking Challenge! We’re on our way to walk 160 miles in just 61 days, can we do it? Yes, yes we can! I am REALLY excited about this challenge, I absolutely love walking, it’s my favorite form of cardio and a total stress reliever and it’s even more fun when it’s a challenge! We will start this first week with 10 miles this week, you can walk, run, jog, hit the treadmill or a walking path- whatever you want to do (feel free to add in extra miles as well) just keep track of your totals. I love my blog followers and want to encourage you to join us over on the event page so I can get to know you as well! Head on over and post your progress here.
Cheesecake is by far my absolute favorite dessert and I am in love with this super easy low carb modification, it honestly tastes just as good and is the perfect snack when you’re having a sweet craving. I had been researching for a while to find a healthy sugar substitute that isn’t artificial and full of chemicals when I came across Xylitol, it’s 100% pure, vegan, non gmo and tastes great with no weird after taste. I purchased mine on Iherb.com, which is one of my favorite websites to shop for natural, organic foods and supplements. New customers can get $5-$10 off their first orders by using code WWv680 and everything ships for free with orders over $20! I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! 🙂
Low Carb Mini Cheesecakes
♦️6 Carbs per cheesecake
- Note: *Using a different sugar substitute will lower the carb intake. Xylitol is on the higher side of the carb scale.
- 16oz cream cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup xylitol (or your favorite sweetener will do)
- 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients into large bowl, use hand mixer and blend well. Pour into 12 cupcake liners. Bake for 20 mins. Allow to cool, then eat. Store all left overs in the fridge.
I finally tried Cream Cheese Pancakes (low carb & gluten free) this morning and they did NOT disappoint! I was actually surprised at how good they tasted compared to regular pancakes and my picky 4 year old loved them and didn’t notice a difference, score for me!

Cream Cheese Pancakes
