Room for Dessert?

Hey guys!

I’m going to be working at a health fair next week and was putting some recipes together to share with people that come by. I put together a kid-friendly spaghetti and marinara recipe and an easy ratatouille recipe. Then I asked my boss what other kinds of recipes she thought I should do. She said everyone always has smoothie recipes at these types of events but she likes to prowl around and scoop up all of the yummy looking dessert recipes she can find.

And hot damn, she’s not the only one!

I, for one, always have room for dessert.

And dessert isn’t a problem. But what and how much you eat can be. It’s okay to eat high calorie desserts as a special treat, but remember that you need to exert portion control.

Many of us are more likely to eat this kind of dessert when we are with friends or family, which makes sharing an obvious strategy. Most restaurants are usually happy to bring extra plates and forks to the table.

If you make your own dessert, experiment with recipes that use reduced fat ingredients or replace some of the fat with applesauce or prunes.

Another option is to opt for low-calorie desserts like sorbet or fruit.

Here are some desserts that I hope to try soon:
