Book Description:
Lexie Greene has always had such a pretty face.

Unfortunately, that’s where it seemed to stop. She’s grown up hearing her Mother constantly remind her that she needs to lose weight. And twenty-two-year-old Lexie knows she’s overweight.

With her younger sister’s wedding on the horizon and a crush to stalk on Facebook, Lexie’s had enough. She gives up her constant daydreams about food and joins a dieting group. As the pounds melt away at the gym, she finds that life on the other side of junk food isn’t what she thought.

Bon Bons to Yoga Pants is an inspirational hit about a girl coming to terms with herself, and her past, all while navigating a world of food and fitness.

My Review: 

Its been a while since I read this book but still I felt like reviewing it after all this time.

If you don’t feel comfortable in your own skin (which is something we all may experience at some point in our lives) this book hands out a ray of hope. This story is cantered around the weight loss journey of a female protagonist, who finds comfort in food, who thinks food, who talks food, her world revolves around food.  It’s a funny, engaging and most of all relatable story.

I recommend anyone that has ever struggled with their weight and hated it, to read this book .

You shouldn’t make your decisions based on what other people think of your life.

Steps

You can use any cookie or graham cracker.  I used “Digestive” to be exact.

Grind your cookies in a grinder, add some melted butter and  press into a tart pan to make crust.

PS: I didn’t have tart pan at hand so I used Pyrex dish,  you see you can use any dish of your liking for this recipe 😉

Place chopped chocolate in the top of a double boiler or a heat-proof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water; cook, stirring occasionally, until melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

Tip: If you want to keep your filling soft 200 g chocolate is fine, to change its texture towards harder increase chocolate in your mixture.

Now add cream in this melted chocolate and mix well, then add 3 scoops of chocolate ice-cream into this mixture and again mix well.

Pour this mixture on your prepared crust, level it with spatula.

Refrigerate for minimum 2 hours.

Enjoy your sweet dish & do tell me if you like it. Would love to hear from you guys..!
