She further explained that having a positive attitude toward food is best for our emotional well-being. “In practice, this would mean feeling freedom to eat a range of food, including so-called ‘unhealthy’ options,” she said. “However, many people require support to be able to do this, particularly if they are using food for emotional regulation purposes ― they are using food for comfort or distraction the way others may use alcohol, shopping and sex. If the person identifies as having a true sugar addiction, striving for complete abstinence is wise.”
Here is the best possible review I can give: I make items for people from this book, and they have no idea it's low fat or low calorie or anything! They love it! Haha! I always wait until they are done eating and then I say.. You know that was only 200 calories. They are always shocked and amazed. I've read a few reviews that say that ..oh this book isn't special it only replaces items that are fattening with their low fat counterparts. I don't think that's true. It's how they are combined with other ingredients that helps them taste like the real thing. I know I have tried many a time to just substitute low fat ingredients for full fat ones, and then it doesn't taste anywhere near the real thing. Devin has a way of making all the ingredients combine so well that the end result is just perfect! I highly recommend this book.
Lori and Michelle Corso‘s Raw Mini Chocolate Cream Cakes are not only healthy and easy to make, they are raw and gluten free too! Plus perfect individual serving! Plus this recipe can be easily changed to your taste preference. We used pecans in the crust, but any nut would work.  For the filling, we used cashews as they provide the best cream. But macadamia nuts would be okay.  We reduced the amount of sugar in these chocolate cream cakes, so adjust to your liking.

These chocolate covered balls are only three ingredients and enough to fool you into thinking it’s that high sugar, store-bought cookie dough. But, no, these are vegan, gluten free, grain free and refined sugar-free! How do these taste so good, you may wonder. There is something about the creamy peanut butter and crunchy peanuts combined with the chocolate shell that form a consistency so perfect it will make your taste buds go wild!
Dr. Jen is hopeful that at some point terms like “guilt-free” will be destigmatized. “Being overweight is linked with low self-esteem, so as our culture slowly shifts from viewing overweight as a problem of lack of motivation, willpower and self-discipline, and rather a symptom of distress and possibly poor mental health, I believe a more compassionate stance will emerge,” she said.

Whether you want to kick your afternoon sweet habit or simply need a snack to tide you over until your next meal, you have several healthy options available. Guilt-free foods are low in calories, provide nutrients to keep you healthy and offer fiber to improve satiety. Foods ranging from carrots to dark chocolate provide the nutrition your body needs, without excessive fat and calories to make you feel guilty.


Healthy eating and healthy living is definitely a lifestyle. A lot of time, effort and self-control goes into making the right decisions when it comes to food. But sometimes, it’s hard to always say “no” to your favorite things to eat. It’s easy to fall into a deceptive web of self-pity and negativity when we eat the things we consider “not good” for our health. While I’m a huge believer in healthy eating, I am also a believer in self-care and self-love. After all, you can’t take care of your body, if you’re not taking care of yourself mentally and emotionally. You may be one of those people who is often very hard on yourself. Here a few tips on Guilt-Free Eating to help you balance healthy eating with living well. In the long term, it will help you be happier and stick to your goals.

Eat real food. That’s the essence of today’s nutrition message. Our knowledge of nutrition has come full circle, back to eating food that is as close as possible to the way nature made it. Based on a solid foundation of current nutrition science, Harvard’s Special Health Report Healthy Eating: A guide to the new nutrition describes how to eat for optimum health.
Further proof that we are living in some bizarro capitalist dystopia came with reports from the United States on the ‘trend’ of co-workers donating portions of their paltry holiday allowance to new parents who have used up their paid family leave. Rather than a horrifying exposé of structural manipulation, it was framed as a cheery feelgood story of everyday heroism. Something is terribly, terribly wrong.
3. ROLL OUT the dough into an 11" round on a lightly floured surface. Transfer the dough to a 9" tart pan with a removable bottom. Firmly press the dough against the bottom and sides of the pan. Trim the edges. Prick the bottom of the dough all over with a fork. Line with foil or parchment paper and weight down with pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and weights. Bake for 5 minutes longer, or until lightly browned. Cool completely on a rack.
Excellent recipe, came out amazing, delicious and just as the picture. Taste was rich and cake moist. Was a bit too sweet, will reduce the amount of sugar next time. No need to add sugar to the egg whites. If you want your cake to have height, you need to be extremelly careful while folding in the whipped egg whites. Overall I really recommend if you are a chocolate lover like me!

Okay, we all know bacon is delicious any way you eat it. But, if you haven’t tried the combination of bacon with maple syrup, you need to, right now! These homemade granola bars are the perfect substitute for a store bought brand because you’ll know everything going into them. (No hidden ingredients!) Using maple syrup as a sweetener is one of the most natural forms of sugar. Replacing refined sugar with the same amount of maple syrup will cut the total sugar content by a third! I also recommend swapping the butter for coconut oil for added benefits.
If you want to beat food guilt, think about why you have it in the first place. What triggers your guilt? It might be specific foods or it might be an internal feeling. Now think about why. Do you feel bloated after you eat it? Did someone once tell you that X food was healthier than Y food and now you feel bad after eating Y food? Once you find the root of your guilt, you can start to alleviate it.

Why would you have plain old sweet-potato fries when you can wrap them in bacon? This recipe calls for just two ingredients: sweet potatoes and bacon. The only trick is twirling the bacon around the sweet potato fries, but it's pretty darn easy. What you end up with is a surprisingly attractive party hors d'oeuvre (if you don't devour them all yourself, of course).
