Although I am still nursing, I made the decision to start trying to get back to my normal weight. This is week two and I struggled a little bit these last two days due to some stress, but I am back on the bandwagon tomorrow. America’s favorite little pink packet is a great way for me to be able to eat some of my favorite snacks while keeping the sweetness and without the added calories.
Sometimes, in the middle of the afternoon, I need a little pick-me-up with a sugary treat. But sometimes, it’s hard to make something delicious without giving into adding sugar to the recipe.
For new moms, I really recommend making this perfect peanut butter cookie recipe that uses Sweet’N Low® instead of real sugar. The reason this recipe is so wonderful is because it’s the perfect snack to grab-and-go; it’s lower-calorie because I’m replacing most of the sugar with Sweet’N Low; I don’t have to sacrifice my sweet tooth; and I trust the brand since it’s been around for 56 years!
