Dessert is my favorite part of the day, but I don't want to look like a cream puff. What is the healthiest option?
It’s okay to treat yourself every day. There is no reason to deprive yourself if you keep it to a small sampling or a few bites. The healthiest options would be a bowl of fruit, frozen grapes, Greek yogurt with berries, or an apple with peanut butter, two to three squares of dark chocolate, a couple of small cookies, or an individual chocolate pudding. You could also choose a few spoonfuls of ice cream or sorbet, a baked apple, or even a small brownie.
At the end of the day, you must watch your daily intake in terms of calories, carbs, fat, and protein, and always remember that quality and quantity rule the game.
