Have Your Cake and Eat it Too: How to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth without all the Calories

Feeling bad about that cupcake (or 3) you just ate? Yeah, we’ve all been there. But believe it or not, you can eat delicious desserts without the guilt.

Just as incorporating a lifestyle of healthy eating involves small changes and smarter choices, the same goes for navigating the dessert table. With the average slice of cake weighing in at 450 calories and swimming in saturated fat, it’s no wonder that many nutrition professionals are telling us to “just say no” to desserts altogether. As America’s Nutrition Expert®, I’m here to let you know that dessert doesn’t have to be the bad guy.

Try the easy baking tips and delicious recipes below to lose excess calories and fat from your diet, without sacrificing flavor. I guarantee they’ll make satisfying your next craving that much sweeter.

Swap this….. For This!

1 c. butter/oil for 1 c. applesauce or 2 c. evaporated skim milk
2 eggs for 4 egg whites (or 3 egg whites, 1 egg)
1 c. whole milk for 1 c. 1% organic, hemp or almond milk
1 c. sour cream for 1 cup plain fat free yogurt (Greek yogurt is best)
1 c. white flour for 1 c. whole wheat flour (or ¾ c. whole wheat, ¼ c. white flour)
1 c. refined sugar for ¾ c. honey

Be a huge hit at your next get together by bringing something special to the dessert table. Your guests won’t be able to tell the difference! Who said eating healthy can’t taste great?

This sounds like a really good recipe and I cant wait to try it. I have recently been dieting and the hardest part is when I get a craving for something sweet. I try to avoid them but I tend to eat more than I mean to from time to time. I have been looking online for places to get some healthy recipes for weight loss and I have found some pretty good ones. I'm going to add this dessert one to the list. Thanks for all your work at making this blog!
