Decadent Drizzled Cheesecake Squares

Contributed by: News Canada

Sweet On Sweets? Controlling the sweet tooth when you're trying to watch your carbs (NC) - Cinnamon hearts, boxes of chocolates, cheesecake for two...or one. Consuming sweets is a Valentine's Day tradition that's difficult to avoid. But for Canadians trying to limit their carb intake, this celebration can be a real challenge.

Decadent Drizzled Cheesecake Squares
"One in four Canadians don't realize that sugar is a carb, so they don't consider the implications of consuming chocolate and candy on Valentine's Day," says registered dietitian Phyllis Tanaka.

A recent survey commissioned by Carb Options and conducted by Ipsos-Reid showed that nearly half of Canadians find it hard to keep their sweet tooth under control when they're trying to lose weight.

For those trying to keep their low carb diets on course this Valentine's Day, Tanaka recommends these Decadent Drizzled Cheesecake Squares.
