Guilt Free Desserts Review
We all give into our temptations, some of us not so readily, but in the end we always give in. It can be anything—that bag on sale, neglecting to study just to go out with friends, or that last cookie.
We all have different ideas of what we find enticing, but I’m sure most of us can agree that sweets or any form of dessert gets us more than anything. Raise your hand if you’re a cheesecake lover. Not for you? Carrot cake, Crème Brûlée, Chocolate Chip Cookies? C’mon now, I’m sure your mouth is watering right about now or are you just hesitant because you know what they do to your body?
Okay, drop all your hesitations right here and right now. You can enjoy all the irresistible desserts while being good to your body.
The Woman Behind it All
She really has a niche for health recipes and aiding other in weight loss. Being a CEO over at Healing Gourmet and an Editor-in-Chief of a four-book series that uses dietary measures to fight major diseases, she sure has a lot under her belt.
Her prime assignment at Healing Gourmet is to help people by introducing desserts that are actually good for you yet decadent. That way you won’t have to forego one of the best guilty pleasures of life.
Hundreds of people have already reaped the benefits of swapping out conventional sugary desserts.
How is it Possible to Indulge Without Packing on the Pounds?
By simply replacing the ingredients that cause excess weight gain. Sugar and flour are the main culprits behind it all and they are easily substituted out with better for you ingredients. These two ingredients cause two majors problems:
- Fluctuation in blood sugar
Both of these ingredients can influence your insulin levels, contributing to diseases like diabetes. Guilt-Free Desserts: Your Guide to Better Baking tackles this issue by introducing a perfectly formulated sweetener that provides a great combination of sweetness without the unnecessary calories.
- Gluten-induced allergies
It is surprising how many people are actually allergic to gluten. This is a protein found in whole grains that can cause those who are sensitive to it to break out in hypersensitivity reactions. Whole grains are touted to be healthy but they can also spike your insulin levels because of their high glycemic index. There are many gluten-free recipes of your favorites like pancakes, bread, and cookies included in Guilt-Free Desserts: Your Guide to Better Baking.
It is impossible to abolish the existence of sugar in any form of food because there are such instances where it will be natural occurring, plus your body needs certain sugars to function regularly. Take out all the refined processed junk and add in proteins, fiber, and healthy fats. They will provide you with all the nutrients your body needs and satiate your blood sugar level. Not only are they good substitutes but they support lean muscle building and give you enough fuel for workouts!
Healthy Fats are a Thing?!
The thing that creates such thick, rich, luxurious desserts are actually fats. They can take on the form of lard, oils, what have you. They inject baked goodies with moisture and that’s what makes them so appealing.
However, these do no good to your body. Because the body doesn’t utilize them, they get stored and result in dreaded weight gain and increase your risk for cardiovascular disease. Just like replacing sugar and flour with ingredients like proteins and fibers, unhealthy fats can easily be replaced with healthy fats. That way you won’t even have to say goodbye to that beloved moist chocolate cake!

I have the biggest sweet tooth. Ever since I was little, I always got in trouble with my dentist because I was always munching on candies, cakes, pastries, etc. What that did to my dental health is another story, but what it did to my body is the most important part. I became almost addicted to eating sweets that I had to have it after every meal. Over the years I started to see an increase in the numbers on the scale. I know that disciple is a big factor controlling your diet, but I also believe that you shouldn’t restrict yourself from the things you love.
It was a bit tough transitioning from eating readily available desserts at grocery stores or even at restaurants, but let me tell you it is worth it. The information I learned from Guilt-Free Desserts: Your Guide to Better Baking not only saved me from the onset of diabetes but it also allowed me to enjoy my life even more.
