Sweets! A topic that seems to be the downfall of so many sassy ladies I speak with. I hear stories of a healthy shake for breakfast, chicken and spinach for lunch, healthy snacks all day, salmon and broccoli for dinner and then bam! That sweet craving hits. And many find themselves derailed for the day. What can we do to satisfy that craving without throwing out all the progress of the day? How can we “clean” the dessert up so that the sugar doesn't age us by the minute and throw on those extra pounds we are working so hard to keep off?? Here are a few of my sassy swaps to get you going in the right direction and make it where you can enjoy a dessert and stay on your plan.
