Happy holiday healthy cheesecake
The holiday is almost over and for many of us that also meant a lot (and we mean a lot) of eating. And then there’s very popular New Year’s resolution to lose weight.
Ask the experts and most say that you can still enjoy your treats, just in moderation. It’s all about being mindful of what you eat.
Another good idea is to make healthy alternatives to your favourite food. Pouyoukas Foods has the answer to this with this delicious low fat baked ricotta cheese cake that tastes just as good as the usual fattening kind. You can enjoy a guilt free indulgence with this cheesecake.
Look out for the new Pouyoukas Foods packaging on the shelves of your nearest supermarket stores.
