Ah, My Sweet!

I have a sweet tooth. I mean, it's bad. I'd love to buy jelly beans more than a day before Easter but I can't have them in the house. I love chocolate but I can control the urge to dig into a wrapped bar of dark chocolate. But the sugar in a jelly bean calls to me in my sleep. How anyone (President Reason, for a specific "one") can have a jar of fruity or spicy little bean-shaped deliciousness in front of them on a desk is beyond my ken. I've lost more than 10 pounds since last summer and would like to drop another 10 before the warm weather demands that I put the bulky sweaters away. I recently found a sweet that I can enjoy without guilt. And it doesn't elevate my blood sugar, inducing the desire for even more sugar. And I admit that I love pumpkin in any form, including coffee. So here's my sweet indulgence: It's called "One Point Pumpkin Pie". When you calculate the sp's it's officially 2 points on the current Weight Watcher's plan. I make one every week and have a slice with my afternoon coffee. I enjoy it and you might, as well. So here's the link: One Point Pumpkin Pie I hope you enjoy a bit of sweetness as much as I do! (Whipped cream extra...)


  1. I am the same way! I do have a sweet tooth but there is diabetis in my family so I have to be careful and I do try to watch my carb intake. I do not have diabetis but I fear what the future may bring. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. I too love jelly beans and have to portion them out everyday. Right now I am loving the Howe Spicy jelly beans. They are huge! A nice piece of dark chocolate around 3 p.m. is a good thing too. Thanks for the recipe. I want to try this. I had good success with WW and still counting the points and maintaining my weight loss from almost 10 years ago!
