This week I needed to make a dessert for some friends we were having over. The problem with me making desserts is I usually find myself eating more of the dough or batter than I planned on and end up with a sugar hangover. I always try and find a healthy alternative to somewhat avoid this when I am planning on providing a treat for something. I think that food should be enjoyed, and treats should be enjoyed, the key is moderation and deciding whats really worth the indulgence. I think its important to avoid constantly feeling deprived. I think that when we feel deprived, we end up OVER compensating later on with a sugar binge, or we just aren’t happy. If you allow yourself a little flexibility in your eating I have found it's better for long term commitment and results. This week I experimented with homemade "Date Paste" after hearing some great things about this alternative to sugar. I like this alternative because its easy to make, its packed with nutrients rather than the empty calories from your average white sugar, and a little goes a long ways!
