Eating Healthy and Feeling Great "Delicious Desserts"

Healthy eating has always been such an important factor of staying fit and most importantly, feeling great. In our busy day to day lives we sometimes find ourselves eating on the run, grabbing a burger because it's fast, or just skipping meals altogether because we are simply too busy to eat, or even worse...forget to eat!

Whoever said that eating desserts could be bad for you? Well, ok...if they're loaded with sugar and fat, ya maybe....but what if you could have a cool refreshing strawberry sherbet with only 77 calories per serving.. or the lemony-ist of lemon pudding cakes for a whopping 185 calories per serving!? Well you can, and the recipies are below. And this is just the beginning... I will keep adding more low calorie, low fat healthy desserts for your tasting pallet. SO DIG IN! Enjoy and throw away that guilt!!!

Stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Coincidence? I think not!
