I heard once “just because you get a flat tire doesn’t mean you slash the other 3” or something like that. Don’t use one mistake as an excuse to derail the whole thing, I guess. Moral of the story for me- cheat, don’t fail.
Trying to get healthy and fit is hard, but on holiday weekends even harder! The food, the friends, the fun, did I mention the food? I love holiday weekend food- burgers, dips, and oh so good desserts.
But I also love be progress I’ve been making getting healthier and happier. So I looked for a way to cheat but not fail. I don’t want to fall off the wagon, just make a pit stop at Deliscious Town!
So–it was supposed to be a cake, it started as a cake but since I, as my mom puts it, cook like the kitchens on fire, it ended a trifle. Sort of. Just go with it, mmmkay?
I wouldn’t say it’s healthy, but it’s sure better than a lot of the alternatives I considered. (And if you’re interested in some helpful hints, tips and amazing products we’ve discovered on this journey to health & weight loss we’re on, message us over at the Hello Nest on Facebook!)
Memorial Day Weekend Strawberry Cake Trifle
One white cake mix, 2 baskets strawberries, 1 can Diet 7up, 2 tubs lite Cool Whip
Preheat oven to 325. Mix the dry cake mix with the can of soda. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Let cool completely. Layer sliced strawberries, cool whip and cubed cake pieces (or in my case, loose cake crumbles). Chill for a bit, then eat!
