Desserts and Snacks
Although this is a place we do not want to indulge ,we can reward ourselves
with special treats and not feel guilty about it.Snacks will help give us that extra energy we need in between meals.
We can also use the breakfast smoothies for a snack or a desert.Eating fresh fruit is the best snack or dessert we can have.We may also est almonds (favorite nut or seed) or dried fruit .A trail mix is excellent without all the preservatives.Don't forget dark chocolate .
