These baked donuts are so enticing that you will forget that they are lightened up.

Yeah, I’m never going to be one of those super disciplined dieters that eliminates everything but protein and veggies from my diet.  You will also never find me in an exercise boot camp.

I eat a balanced diet with a wide variety of foods.  And I think if you want a donut . . . Eat A Donut!  Sheesh!

Now what is really important is how often you eat a donut and what type of donut you are eating.  Like donuts made with Greek yogurt glaze and Canada Dry TEN in the batter!

Enjoy these Blackberry Ginger Baked Donuts without the guilt.

Bathing suit season is just around the corner . . . ahhhhhhhh!  Are you ready?  I’m not.

It is time to swap the heavier comfort food for lightened up figure friendly foods.

The Four Ten Calorie DPSG products help you do that.  Swap out regular soda for one of the Four TEN flavors: 7UP, Sunkist, A&W or Canada Dry.

In fact, any of those flavors would be fantastic in a baked donut.  Adding the fizzy drinks to the donut batter makes them extra light and airy!

I’m a HUGE fan of the Canada Dry TEN!  These Four Ten Calorie DPSG products are full flavored.  So even though they have less calories, they still taste great!

I’m going to make another trip to Walmart to get some more Canada Dry TEN!

Coupons for the Four TEN Calorie DPSG products will soon be available on the Walmart website!

I’m a busy gal.  I’m usually working on my computer, wrangling 3 little kiddos, preparing meals, cleaning house, running errands and the list goes on.  So I have to sneak a workout into my daily routine as much as possible.

One thing about being a food blogger . . . I do a lot of grocery shopping.  There are a few tricks that I use to burn extra calories during my trips to the grocery store.

1. Park Far Away {I don’t like waiting for a parking spot close to the store entrance anyway}

2. Carry a Basket Instead of Pushing a Cart {When Possible}

3. Squat Instead of Bending Over To Reach Item on the Lower Shelves {Sure it looks a little wacky, but who cares? I’ve seen stranger things happening at the grocery store}
