Triple Berry Cheesecake

Sugar-Free, THM-S, Keto

Dessert for Breakfast

I have to admit that I have had this delicious amazingness for breakfast a time or two!

I mean, come on! Who WOULDN’T eat this for breakfast? The amazing part is, it is sugar-free, chock full of berries and actually has flax meal in the crust…so yea…healthy cheesecake for the win!

There are no carbs in this sucker (hence, the THM-S and Keto label), so you know that when you eat this beautiful dessert, you are only burning one fuel (fat). And, because of the lack of processed sugar, your insulin levels will not be spiked. Perfect for diabetics!

Hello breakfast, lunch or dinner!

It really is almost too pretty to eat! ALMOST.

My husband actually treats this dessert like gold! He will savor it for a couple days (which is a long time for him to keep his favorite foods without eating them), hiding it away from the kids, and sneaking a slice whenever he can. I think my cheesecakes are one of his favorite things I make.

Berries Everywhere!

Did you know that berries are actually really good for you? Heck yea! Here are stat on some of my favorite berries:

Strawberries
One cup of strawberries (about 8 berries) has 50 calories, 3 grams of fiber and more vitamin Cthan a medium orange. They’re also an excellent source of fiber, folate and potassium. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition ranked strawberries third out of more than 1,000 antioxidant-rich foods. Strawberries also contain anthocyanins, which may help protect the nervous system and blood vessels.
Studies have shown that strawberries can help protect against several types of cancer, including breast, colon and leukemia. Research has also found that strawberries help decrease inflammation and control type 2 diabetes. In addition, one study found that eating 8 strawberries a day for 8 weeks helped lower homocysteine levels, a leading risk factor for heart disease.
Blueberries
One cup of these fruits has 84 calories and close to 4 grams of fiber. Blueberries are a rich source of antioxidant vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese. Research has found that blueberries may help prevent prostate cancer and protect against heart disease. Animal research has also found that blueberry extract may help improve memory, balance and coordination—potentially promising for those with Alzheimer’s disease.
Raspberries
One cup of raspberries has 70 calories and is an excellent source of vitamin C. The serving is also a good source of fiber, phosphorus and selenium. Raspberries contain anthocyanins (mentioned above) and another phytochemical called quercetin, found to help slow cancer growth.
As with the other berries, studies have shown that raspberries may be useful in preventing esophageal and liver cancer. Raspberries have also been shown to help control blood sugar in diabetics and help prevent liver damage.
Blackberries
One cup of blackberries has 62 calories, 8 grams of fiber and is an excellent source of vitamins C and K and manganese. Blackberries have been found to have the highest amount of antioxidants – higher than the other 3 berries mentioned above! They’re also bursting with all types of phytochemicals, which have been shown to help fight or prevent cancers like liver, colon, lung and esophogeal. Blackberries also contain quercetin, an antioxidant that may help decrease the risk of heart disease.https://www.foodnetwork.com/healthyeats/healthy-tips/2013/07/the-health-benefits-of-berries
