Healthy Holiday Desserts
Is the term “healthy dessert” an oxymoron? Could be! It depends on how you make it—and how much of it you end up eating at one time!
A recipe is only as “healthy” as its ingredients!! The best ingredients are fresh, organically grown/raised, non-processed with as little preservatives/additives added as possible. Even better are items in season, locally grown—check your local farmer’s markets. Best of all—home grown where YOU are in control of the soil and plants!
O.K. so you want to cut back on your sugar. You want to continue to lose weight or at the very least maintain where you’re at over the holidays. Does that mean you can’t have any sweets? No. The best way to control your sugar and carb intake is to cook your own food. Yup, get in that kitchen and start cooking! Check out these no-sugar healthy holiday desserts.
Even though I deem these recipes to be basically healthy, I still suggest you pay close attention to your portion size and don’t overdo it!
