We know the holidays can be tough when it comes to staying healthy. At Christmas, all we want to do is eat sweets and more sweets. Especially sugar cookies with extra sprinkles!! Or just all the baked goodies we have around the house. But it is a officially and a New Year, time to start fresh. Maybe one of your New Year's Resolutions was to be healthier. You don't have to give up desserts, just pick sweets with better ingredients.
2018 can be a new way to approach desserts! Still have that sweet tooth, but pick the healthier recipes like fruit covered in dark chocolate instead of just chocolate, etc. In this post, there are seven recipes that you can start to try in January. That way you can work your way down the list to try all of these healthy goodies!
Even if it's not part of your resolutions to eat better, healthy desserts are always a good idea! The Labels and Lacquer girls are definitely excited to try each one of these!
