Nourish your Sweet Tooth with Over 40 Treats, Sweetened by Nature

February 16th, 2014 · 6 Comments · What to Buy

Sadly, I grew up with the habit of having a little something sweet after I eat a meal. It just doesn’t feel complete unless I grab something to override the aftertaste of dinner, no matter how delicious it was.

Could I train my palate and exercise great self-discipline to make that habit disappear?

Yes.

Is it much more fun to grab a piece of dark chocolate or make a mostly nourishing dessert that I feel good about offering to my kids (who seem to have developed the same habit already)?

Yep!

I’ve come a long way since some of the sweet-tooth addictions of my adolescent and young adult years, mostly in a mind-over-matter battle that I generally win. It’s all about having the knowledge – like the 7 reasons white sugar is bad for you in this handy, highly sharable printable I think you should download today:

The printable is a good little reminder about why you don’t want to overload on refined sugars (or perhaps consume them at all), plus a quick explanation of the difference between cane and beet sugars.

Maybe this one page will be a conversation-starter between you and a spouse, a family member, or a dear friend who could use some education so they can make better choices on their own. I hope it helps you!

Can I Still Have Dessert?

Just because sugar is bad for you doesn’t mean life with desserts is over. There are plenty of natural ways to sweeten up a treat, both actual sweeteners and with fruit alone.

With good healthy fats and some nourishing ingredients, you can make a fun dessert or treat that hardly even registers on the "compromise" meter.

This eBook features over 40 "bloggers’ best" recipes for your culinary enjoyment…

With special thanks to Pat of Heal Thyself and Aubrey of Homegrown and Healthy, who organized the monumental task of collating hundreds of pieces of information and coordinating the editing process, and to Starlene of GAPS Diet Journey and Vivian of The Real Food Guide for their talents in formatting and designing, the bloggers of the Community Cookbooks group present…

What’s in Naturally Sweetened Treats, the eBook?

Here’s the full table of contents (click to view larger):

Recipe categories include:

  • 8 Balls & Bar recipes
  • 7 Cakes & Pie recipes
  • 8 Chocolate recipes
  • 4 Cookie recipes
  • 7 Fruity recipes
  • 7 Ice Cream recipes

What has impressed me the most about this collection, which is truly the best each blogger has to offer, is the focus on reducing sweets, increasing healthy fats, and especially reducing grains.

Many recipes include coconut flour and nearly the entire book is gluten-free, although that wasn’t even the intent we started out with. All these blogging mavens clearly understand that mixing sugars with grains intensifies their negative impact…How cool is that? And the beauty…oh! I’m salivating:

    I added the book to my cart, but also wanted your smart sweets ebook for 50% off. I don’t see a coupon code anywhere on the check out page. Wll I have to do two transactions?
    Thanks

    Joy,
    A very good question – the coupon for Smart Sweets comes with the purchase of this one, so there wasn’t really any way for me to deliver it other than with the book. Ultimately, yes, you’ll have to do 2 transactions. Sorry about that part! Hope you enjoy all the yummy recipes, and thank you so much for your (double) interest. :) Katie

    I still fall on the side of “try to train myself out of dessert.” I especially don’t want to train my kids to feel they “need” something sweet after every meal. Maybe I’ll adopt the cheese-and-fruit final course they have in France, or end the meal with nuts like they used to do in England. (Hence the phrase “from soup to nuts.”) Or maybe end with herbal tea?

    Right now it’s my bedtime snack I’m trying to break myself of. Even if I make myself eat something healthy, then I want a treat after that too! I just would love to have whether I have a treat in the evening be a *choice.* Instead I always feel like I *need* it, know what I mean?

    But I sure would love some sweet things for special occasions, like when the kids have friends over and I want to show off a bit. ;)
