The battle between sticking to your diet and eating dessert is officially over
As much as we'd like to say it ain't so, dessert is the first thing to go when that spring break diet kicks in. If this wasn't sad enough in itself, this also perfectly lines up to when all the post-Valentine's Day candy goes on sale. This is when it starts to feel as if the universe is playing a cruel joke on us.
Honestly, these diets where we completely cut out sugar cold turkey never work well for anyone. But now there are ways to satisfy your sweet tooth without giving up on your diet, thanks to companies like Hail Merry who make it that much easier to indulge in dessert.
So Dessert Can Be Good for You?
Sadly we're not living in the year 3000 and it's still not totally correct to say dessert is actually healthy or good for you. But these products are made mostly from almond flour, maple syrup, and coconut oil, you could make the argument that you're being decently healthy. So you can indulge in dark chocolate espresso cups or a coconut vanilla créme tart without totally falling off the diet bandwagon.
