These are from WeightWatchers. They look good, don’t they? They taste good too.
Except, of course, WeightWatchers want to help you gain or maintain control of your weight, so they’re small portions and they’re considerably lower in fat than many of the treat recipes I post. Worth noting, though, that they’re still quite high in sugar, so you still can’t eat a whole box *cough*
Anyway, WeightWatchers sent Penny and I all these lovely goodies, plus some wine for good measure and challenged us to have Girls’ Night in. For us, that meant sitting in front of a camera eating cake. That’s what bloggers do.
It was really interesting to talk about how we approach food. Neither of us are fans of fad dieting, it transpired, and both prefer a sensible, long term approach focusing on health rather than weight.
We chat in the vid about how the WW approach is less about dramatic self-denial (which I simply don’t believe is sustainable) and more about helping you understand how, what and when you eat so that you feel empowered to make healthier choices.
In that framework, I can completely see where the occasional reduced fat treat fits in: if you want to eat low-cal long-term and you’re not much of a baker, it’s maybe even essential. A world without cake isn’t a world I want to live in ;-)
Watch the video now:
At around £1.30 for a 5 pack of the cake bars, £1.59 for 12 of the chocolate digestives, they’re not that pricey.
Have you tried them? Would you? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
WeightWatchers sent us the food and a camera to record our thoughts.
