No matter how much I eat, there’s always room for dessert.
It doesn’t go to the stomach, it goes to the heart. I love this slogan – it’s so true! I’ve always had a sweet tooth and I love to finish my evening meal with something sweet – even if it’s just a few squares of 85 per cent dark chocolate. One of the reasons I advocate a balanced diet is because not allowing flexibility can lead to extremes of restrictive-eating practices followed by periods of binges and the feelings of guilt that follow. Although we need to eat well for our health and our body, we also need to eat for our soul – and that includes dessert! My recipes here are designed to nourish both body and soul: not only are they delicious, but they’re made from wholesome ingredients with minimal added sugar.
