Low Fat Desserts & Cake Recipes
A good number of North Americans have been on a diet at some point or another, and of course it is an enormous disappointment when the diet fails. A common mistake that many of us tend to make is that we try to deprive ourselves entirely of foods that we enjoy or are used to eating. This often causes us to experience cravings, which can lead to binging. Instead of this type of deprivation, it is much better to eat moderately and cook healthier versions. People with a sweet tooth need not be dismayed simply because they are dieting. There are plenty of ways to substitute ingredients to create low-fat or fat-free versions of our favorite desserts. The important thing is to remember that even though these desserts are much lighter, they should still be consumed sensibly, in moderate quantities, as with all other foods.
