Smooshed Strawberry Stuff

The day before yesterday I had bought a bag of frozen organic strawberries that were on sale. By the time I got home to put them away, they had thawed quite a bit, and were getting mushy. I decided to let them thaw almost all the way, and then squished them in the bag, until they were really smooshed. I added a bit of splenda, and then looked in the fridge for a vehicle for said smooshed strawberries. There it was: a fat free plain greek style yogurt from Trader Joe's. I added a little Splenda and some vanilla, and stirred it up. Then put in the strawberries, and a dollop of SF Cool Whip. Stirred it all again. It is so very yummy, I am amazed I never thought of this before! I had tried it with just cool whip, but I am trying to get away from the processed foods as much as I can, and I wanted the healthy aspects of the yogurt. This tastes like a really good dessert. Kind of cheesecakey, or moussey. The strawberries add an intense flavor, because they get all juicy when squished.

Still feeling good as far as the healthy eating is. Not having the cravings, back to loving lean meats, salads, and veggies. Not really eating just for the "fun" of it. Thank goodness. I still need to work on increasing my exercise, but overall, I feel so much better already, and the scale is going down.

My little boy has strep, so we are home today. I hope to catch up on some exercising, and some cleaning. The house really needs it! :) I could use the exercise from the cleaning too! Hope everyone is having a good week!
