When I was first doing Atkins for real, not just playing around with it, I came across the beloved “Mock Danish”. At first, it meant nothing to me as I am not a sweet lover. So “Danish” turned me off.
On the support group forum I belonged to however, they kept singing it’s praises and I finally succumbed. And I am glad I did! It was heavenly, and oh so filling! It kept me satiated for hours. Better than that, it was excellent cold, so I could make a few and keep in the fridge for those times I needed something quick and a meal in itself.
There are so many variations of the mock danish on the net, and it really is left up to YOU to decide how you like it. This is my favorite way however, cause, well, I love pumpkin.
I added this recipe into the Good Food Hunting eBook, but don’t mind sharing it here because like I said, it’s EVERYWHERE on the net.
What makes the GFH eBook really worth the price is not the recipes as much as the menus and shopping lists included. The recipes are only there to help you do the plan. The way the menus are put together are what make the plan really work. Consider this purchase as a step into getting back to a sane way of eating.
One of my Bod Squad clients actually did this, having had a series of personal situations hit her and her weight paid the price. She wanted to go straight back on hCG and I asked her to consider doing the GFH Plan first, get herself into a sane and healthy eating habit and then after 30 days if she still needed hCG it would be there.
She wrote this to me this morning:
I started the GFH menu [on Monday, only 3 days ago] for 30 days and already I am down [5.3 pounds]. Not sure how I am eating amazing food and losing, but I happy tickled pink.
BTW, I am LOVING the GFH menus. The pumpkin mock danish was to die for and the Lazy Caesar Salad Dressing is my new favorite.
