You don’t need to say “no, thanks” to treats when you’re living a vegan lifestyle and working to maintain an ideal weight. Enjoy these 6 vegan desserts to satisfy a sweet tooth.
Research suggests that consuming occasional cheat foods can help shed pounds or maintain a healthy weight. How does it work? Experts believe cheat foods have a psychological component that acts like a reward for the hard work and effort put into a diet that’s otherwise quite healthy . This reward aspect may make it easier to stick to a healthy meal plan.
The best part of these vegan desserts? They deliver the sweet without the junk. You won’t find refined sugar or artificial sweeteners here. Our recipes don’t contain unhealthy fats either, like those often found in store-bought desserts.
Sweet treats such as these are welcome additions to vegan menus, but they need to be enjoyed in moderation. With each of these dessert recipes, check the portion size and then measure out the dessert accordingly. Sticking to the listed serving size will help you keep calories and weight in check.
