I still remember the first time I made a dessert. When I was about ten years old, I made no-bake cookies, which turned out to be such a hit that I made them again and again. Once I became confident enough to try something else, I became addicted to the process of creating things people liked to eat!
Until a few years ago I didn’t give much thought to whether something was healthy or not…it was all about how good the food tasted. That all changed when I began to work at a local health food store and saw how many health issues people were dealing with as a result of too many unhealthy foods. There were also those who had dairy intolerance, gluten and wheat allergies, and of course the most common concern I heard was from those trying to reduce, substitute, or eliminate sugar from their diets.
At the same time, the other complaint I commonly heard was that healthy desserts could never taste as good as all the naughty foods they were used to eating. That’s when it occurred to me…why should healthy foods have to taste, well, healthy? Inspired by that thought, I found a new challenge. I didn’t want to just be creative with making desserts that people would enjoy, I also wanted to make healthier options that could convince even the most skeptical critics how delicious healthy food could be. So I setup my first account on Blogger and got to work.
Along the way, I enlisted the help of two of my good friends, Jared and Rebecca. They’re my awesome team members who help me with videography, post editing, social media, and all of the behind-the-scenes stuff…and not-so-behind-the-scenes, which you’ll already know if you watch my YouTube videos! I think we make a great team, and we actually get stuff done in between all of the laughter and random singing.
What I hope you’ll find here is a fun, interactive blog that can assist you in looking for healthy tips and tricks, deliciously decadent recipes, and alternatives to help those who have allergies, health concerns, or are just looking for a healthier option for a sweet treat!
Enjoy and spread the delicious goodness on to others!
