You probably noticed that I don’t post many dessert recipes. Yeah, I don’t make desserts very often. In fact, I make desserts probably once a month. It is simply because I am trying to avoid having a full cheesecake in my refrigerator or a plate of brownies sitting on my tabletop. I do have cravings for sweets like anybody else, but a piece of chocolate usually satisfies those cravings. If I feel down or go out with friends, I may have a slice of that cheesecake, but it’s only one slice and I don’t have the rest of that cake sitting in the house calling my name.
This is a habit I have developed since I adopted a healthier lifestyle, and I am very happy I did. That said, I do make desserts once in a while to celebrate something with my husband Stan, or when I am having friends over. I usually make low calorie treats that will satisfy a sweet tooth without doing any damage on thighs. I try to use fresh fruits, grains, nuts and seeds or at least reduce the amount of fat and sugar as much as possible.
