The holidays are hard, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. There are so many good foods that are shared and traditions that are filled with sweetness during the holidays. You could swap out most of those recipes for healthier versions and that would make a difference. But doing that means you are working hard on keeping your diet plan intact. That act alone deserves a bit of a reward and desserts can be that reward. The trick is to go for a healthy dessert, but also one you would enjoy. Thanksgiving desserts are a good place to start. It might not be a good idea to reward yourself every day. However, the holidays are extra hard and you’ve worked all year long on improving your diet. You have earned this one, so take it.
Thanksgiving desserts can be a great way to reward yourself after eating healthy all year and for the entire holiday meal.
