What do you think of when you hear the word “diet”? I think of restriction, which is why I don’t like “diets”. However; The Skinny Gut Diet doesn’t restrict you, in fact it gives you some amazing recipes like this Berries and Cream Parfait dessert.

Skinny Gut Diet

As I write this, I’m going into week 4 on The Skinny Gut Diet by Brenda Watson.  I’m really enjoying it. Yes, I said I am enjoying a diet but I am not considering this a diet at all. It’s a pretty rare occasion I’m hungry and I feel amazing. I had a few ups and downs, but after buckling down and following the plan I’m down almost a total of 6 pounds since I started The Skinny Gut Diet. My jeans fit better, I’m happier and I’m beginning to understand what my body is telling me.

For a quick recap of the past three weeks:

I get asked a lot on what I eat. For right now (in the phase I’m in) I eat a lot of protein, fat and vegetables.

Here’s a typical schedule for me:

Morning: I usually have a protein shake in the morning with added fiber, a little fruit and kefir.

Lunch: Omelet with cheese and some chopped veggies. If I’m hungry still I add bacon or whatever I feel like with a side (that’s within my limit).

Afternoon snack: Almonds, cottage cheese, yogurt – it really depends on what I feel like eating. I only eat when I’m hungry – not if I’m bored. If I’m bored, I take a walk.

Dinner: A piece of protein with a size of salad, and roasted vegetables. A favorite of mine lately is my Creamy Bruschetta Chicken (recipe to come).

Dessert: I have dessert every day. I have to have something sweet at night, and I’m really excited to share with you what my new favorite (and let’s not forget to mention super quick) recipe is.

Berries and Cream Parfait

  • 1/4 cup whipped cream – no added sugar
  • 6 ounces plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup raspberries (or other high fiber berries)
  • 1 tbsp ground chia (optional)

Whip cream until fluffy and soft peaks form (I use my Vitamix, and it takes less than 30 seconds). Fold whipped cream in with Greek Yogurt in a bowl. Top with raspberries and chia (for an extra fiber boost).

Note: Depending on how sweet my tooth is that night, I do add some stevia to sweeten the cream sometimes. This is also great with a little bit of cocoa powder for a protein-packed chocolate mouse.

  1. WOW! This diet sounds great!! I love that you can have DESSERT every night!! Are they are lot of suggestions for meal ideas?? I’m one of those people that needs to be told what to do….I can’t make things up as I go along!

    • There a lot of suggestions and recipes and snacks. I’m actually surprised I haven’t tried many. It’s easy to do it as you go a long. As long as you’re eating a clean protein, veggies (with high fibre like broccoli) – it’s fool proof. I also eat a lot of almonds, almond butter, etc.

  2. I like that this diet does not restrict you. I never follow restricted diets: This parfait looks so good.

  8. Hi there! Visiting from the Get Your Shine On Thursday link party. I’m currently on a low carb diet and would love a berry parfait. Maybe I can make this work if I just add a tiny bit of raspberries. But everytime I buy any kind of berry, I can’t seem to stop myself from eating the entire package! 😀
