Often times, dessert gets a bad rap, which is really unfortunate because it is one of life’s great pleasures. Dessert does fit into a healthy lifestyle so long as it’s accounted for. As tiresome as it may be to read so frequently by me, it honestly comes down to balancing our intake. One certainly can’t eat dessert after each meal of the day, but a sensible dessert sometime during the day is perfectly fine! For me, dessert does not have to be a big piece of cake, a slice of pie, or something incredibly decadent, although those are all great from time-to-time. 😉 A yogurt parfait with cake pieces or a small brownie is completely satisfying. I did not want this to be a lengthy post but instead, one that may give new ideas to try when wanting something sweet. My biggest message is to always enjoy the real deal – please do NOT eat sugar free anything as it’s 1) fake as it gets, 2) honestly does not taste good, so 3) you likely won’t feel satisfied. I highly encourage everyone to enjoy real food even with dessert. Just make it a priority to do so in a sensible manner.
I think Emma Stone said it best: “You’re a human being, you live once and life is wonderful, so eat the damn red velvet cupcake.” Popsugar
