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?
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)?
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.
