Nutritious and healthy: Low Cal Chocolate Blueberry Crepes

family, Alyssa and misc 026

‘Nourishment’ comes in all kinds of presentations, serving size, and tastes. But, a pill? that is not a way I want to take it. I take enough other medications so certainly do not want to get my nutrition from a pill. There is no fun in that. A few years ago when I had put on a lot of excess weight through the years and had tried all kinds of diets, I went on my own weight loss program. No special diet, no special foods, or exercise regimens  or fitness clubs. I bought a Schwinn programmable, recumbent exercise bicycle and took long walks regularly. With the substantial amount of decreased calories and increased exercise I lost a full 100 lbs. over the four-year period. Keeping all of it off is a bit of a challenge and I still like an occasional dessert. But, I don’t make it a daily habit. 

I will share a little low-calorie, nutritious dessert recipe of my own that tastes great, is fun and easy to make. I like to experiment sometimes with recipes and often will alter one a little to cut calories. There are ways to get more nutrition with less of the fat or sugar. Here is my little creation presented and shared in Haiku style. 

I love crepes: all kinds

Chocolate and Blueberries

are my favorite

***

Just a bit of rum

and cocoa in the batter

is the secret here.

***

Blueberry syrup:

one cup frozen blueberries,

a little corn starch,

***

A half cup sugar.

Cook slow, till thick and bubbly.

Top all with cool whip.
