Keto cheesecake, keto desserts, and DIRTY, LAZY, KETO? I have such a sweet tooth! I love to bake, too. Unfortunately, even though many of my favorite recipes are low carb, I still overeat them! (Like eating the whole keto dessert in one day – so embarrassing.)
One of my secrets of adulthood (and weight loss success tips) is to enjoy special keto desserts, but only on a limited basis.
For example, I make my famous Birthday Cheesecake on major holidays (like Christmas). I look forward to this delicious keto dessert for months! My family enjoys it too. The first year I brought my (dirty keto) Birthday Cheesecake to a family event, I didn’t tell anyone it was sugar-free. I was too embarrassed! Why? Oh, I don’t know… I guess I didn’t want a bunch of “food drama” or discussions about me being on a “diet”. In my experience, once people hear something is “keto” or “sugar-free”, they tend to make snap judgments that it tastes bad without even trying it.
Instead of announcing the “dirty keto” ingredients, I set that bad boy down on the dessert table and silently walked away. I didn’t say a word. But guess what happened – everyone LOVED IT!
That was about eight years ago. Now, my secret is out! Birthday Cheesecake is a requested favorite at all my holiday get-togethers. Despite knowing its sugar-free, my family loves it all the more. If this Rockstar recipe sounds familiar to you, that’s because you might have seen it called out on the cover of my new book, The DIRTY, LAZY, KETO Cookbook: Bend the Rules to Lose the Weight. Video Preview? On YouTube!
Besides major holidays (notice I said “major holidays”, not Flag Day or another equally arbitrary mc-holiday!), my second permittable loophole for enjoying cheesecake is to enjoy eating it only while dining at my favorite restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory. Because I infrequently visit the Cheesecake Factory in San Francisco (maybe once or twice a year), the opportunity to go overboard is self-limiting. If you haven’t tried it yet, I recommend their sugar-free cheesecake topped with real whipped cream and fresh strawberries. It’s fab-u-luss!
