Who doesn't like dessert?I know I like my sweets! In fact, I know a lot of people who like their sweets and that's okay.
It's okay to "Treat Yourself" every once in a while. It's okay to enjoy it, savor it, and indulge here and there.
However, if you're anything like me, it can be difficult to not cross that line of indulging a little too much in the treats. Here and there can quickly become an every day habit of reaching for the dark chocolate bar, hidden stash of candy, or making that extra batch of brownies.
Have you ever made a batch of cookies or brownies and then ate more than your fair share before anyone else got to them? Then you pretend like the recipe really didn't make that much to cover up your guilt of over-indulging?
I have. Guilty.
I get it, treats are delicious. I also get that they are hard to step away from but they are just that - treats.
A treat isn't exactly a treat if we're consuming it all the time.
Treat - "an event or item that is out of the ordinary and gives great pleasure"
In the spirit of the coming holiday and to continue our conversation about sweets, here is something to think about the next time you are reaching for that sugar fix...
