Healthy Holiday Dessert To Wow At Parties

If you’re watching your weight, it’s tough to go to a party – knowing there will be lots of food around that you know you shouldn’t eat.  We all want to be able to eat what we want (and not gain weight).  My husband can decide he wants to lose weight and literally can lose five pounds in a week – where I could sometimes starve myself for a month and not lose those same five pounds!

So, as you’re planning your holiday parties – let me give you a great, easy shareable healthy holiday snack that you can take to your next holiday party and not feel guilty indulging in some of it yourself.

Carmel Valley San Diego Community | Amy MewbornOriginally from the Midwest, Amy moved to San Diego in 2001. A graduate of Valparaiso University, Amy had been a Financial Advisor since 1997. When Amy began taking Pilates with her neighbor Wendy, in 2006, she fell in love with the method and benefits of the program and knew she wanted to help others achieve their fitness goals. It was not until Amy took her first barre class that she discovered her true passion for fitness. She loved the challenge and energy of each class. And more importantly, she was excited by the results as her body became more toned than through any other workout routine she had tried in the past. Amy would be one of the best testimonials for Fit in 60 Pilates and Barre. In less than a month’s time, attending 4-5 classes a week, Amy went from a size 10/12 to a size 6. She came home one day and told her husband, Mike that “if every girl knew this, every girl would do it.” Amy is passionate about getting to know her clients and provide modifications and corrections to challenge every client, while making classes as safe as possible. Amy lives in Carlsbad with her husband, Mike, and her dog Emma. She loves what she does, and is thrilled to present the Fit in 60 workout to Carlsbad and Carmel Valley and is eager to help women look and feel great!
