Even though ‘stressed’ is ‘desserts’ spelled backwards… it doesn’t mean that we should have to stress out about what eating dessert can do to our health. Studies have shown that a sugar intake that’s too high can affect our weight, heart health, and even vision. Instead of indulging in a decadent dessert or pint of ice cream, turn towards one of these 10 healthier desserts. Made with ingredients that help the body instead of hurt it, these desserts can actually make us feel better. They’re just as delicious as typical desserts and keep you living long and strong! A delicious two in one!
Baked grapefruit with brown sugar and honey
We’ve all heard of grapefruit for breakfast, but what about grapefruit for dessert? Grapefruit is full of Vitamin A and we love its health benefits. Instead of cooling your grapefruit off in the fridge, store it at room temperature. This will make it perfect for baking. Put your grapefruit in the oven covered in a little bit of honey and brown sugar. The sweetness will melt inside and it will taste like you’re eating candy. Yum!
