The key to success in any weight loss journey is not depriving yourself a treat. I had a sweet tooth and cheesecake sounded good at the moment but when I looked up the calorie counts for a single slice of Cheesecake Factory Original Cheesecake I quickly resigned that thought. A single slice of cheesecake contains 707 calories, 29g of saturated fat, 425 mg of sodium and 62 g of carbohydrates.

I stumbled upon this Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries that hit the spot.

Directions
  1. Beat cream cheese, stevia, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth; spoon into a piping bag or a resealable bag with a corner snipped.
  2. Fill cavities of cored strawberries with the cream cheese mixture. Dip filled side of strawberries in the crushed unsalted nuts (optional).
