Chocolate Lasagna

Finally, a diet that allows you to eat any dessert you want, everyday, while still losing massive amounts of weight…

April Fools! I’m sorry, but in the spirit of today, I couldn’t resist :).

Here’s the good news (this is not an April Fool’s joke): there are a bunch of delicious and healthy foods that can be prepared to taste amazing. The best part is that this is food (or dessert) that you can eat everyday…and STILL stay on your nutritional track.

Here’s one of our family favorites.

Candied Pears – A healthy dessert that sure doesn’t taste healthy!

Candied Pears
Serves 1

1 pear (Anjou or other firm baking pear)
1 packet Stevia in the Raw
3 tbsp Vanilla Almond Milk
Oil spritzer or cooking spray
Sea salt

1. Preheat oven to 375* F.

2. Peel the pear, cut in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and stem.

3. Lightly spray a small baking dish with the oil/cooking spray and sprinkle it with 1/2 packet of Stevia concentrating it where you’ll be putting the pears. Sprinkle the pan with a few shakes of sea salt.

4. Add the pears cut side down into the baking dish. Sprinkle them with remaining 1/2 packet of stevia, another dash or two of sea salt and a sprinkle cinnamon.

5. Bake for 20 minutes then remove from oven and add Almond Milk. (Note: If using a glass baking dish, beware of adding cold ingredients to a hot glass pan!) Return to oven and cook for an additional 10 minutes.

6. Serve hot from the oven. Yum!

Don’t ever forget – fruit is Nature’s dessert!

    I tried the candied pears this past weekend and loved them! I must say, I would have loved a big scoop of ice cream. 🙂 But they were satisfying without it.

    That really tickled me 😀 I said it many times the chocolate is an universal topic that always (in my case at least) leads to “fruitful” debates.. However the healthier variation doesn´t sound bad too 😉

    Hello.I’m Sajedah from Mauritius.. a small island in the Indian Ocean.I’m 20 years old and i love baking.I’m a baker actually.The reason i chose this post is because i love food,sweet food actually.. which is a big problem for me and my family!We are currently in the month of Ramadan which is quite helpful in many ways including controlling food urges besides i always look for desserts which are quite “healthy” and this is kind of rare thing to find.I really have to lose weight before things gets out of hand.I watch the program that Chris is doing on YouTube and its so inspiring and a joy to see people that weigh more than me lose weight and be healthy. That’s it. The book is a maybe a way for me to get things started and i hope to have it! 🙂
