Guilt Free Desserts Review: Great Tasting Desserts and Good for You Too?
I’ve been following Kelley Herring for some time now, admiring her discipline and unwavering commitment to natural, gluten-free, low glycemic deliciousness. I stumbled upon Ms. Herring after having my second baby when my digestion went out of whack and I was investigating a gluten-free diet.
I must say, her tasty treats are truly scrumptious and use anything but what I’m used to for my typical baking—no more white flour, pastry flour, corn starch, brown sugar (or heaven forbid, white sugar). Rather, nutritionally rich almonds, cocoanut, range free eggs, palm sugar and mmm…mmm butter.
Kelley Herring has a science background, as well as a strong desire to see people thrive in good health, using nature’s best nutrients in order to stay strong, fit, and healthy. She says, “Thanks to the latest in nutritional science, it can be downright easy to create desserts that are so sinfully moist, sweet and delicious… you’ll swear they’re bad for you.” Kelley is also the Editor in Chief of the four-book series, Eat to Fight Cancer, Eat to Beat Diabetes, Eat to Lower Cholesterol and Eat to Boost Fertility, published by McGraw-Hill.

Guilt-Free Desserts requires a whole new way of looking at food, particularly sweet food. It’s like a complete re-education in baking and cooking.
It took awhile to get my mind around it, as well as purchase the necessary ingredients to begin preparing Guilt-Free Desserts. While Kelley Herring states that many of the ingredients can be found in your pantry, that wasn’t the case for me. I did have to shop differently, usually at an organic market. The ingredients are expectedly pricier than the so-called equivalent one would find at typical grocery stores.
One of the significant benefits of Guilt-Free Desserts is the elimination of processed sugars. A low-glycemic lifestyle has all kinds of benefits, especially for those who are pre-diabetic, or diabetic. I use alternate sugars for my family all the time, and find they’re just as tasty, and with the right guidance versatile.
These desserts fill you up. While the ingredients are more expensive than typical baking ingredients, you feel full quicker without the spike in blood sugar, and the heaviness in the pit of your stomach.
This is quality food. You can have a piece of carrot cake for breakfast, and feel the energy throughout the morning. I love the fact that I’m feeding my kids something nutritionally dense, without a bunch of chemicals or processed ingredients. I can honestly tell the difference in them when they have conventional baking, and when they eat something with low-glycemic, all-natural ingredients. Their moods are better and their energy is more consistent, longer.
Guilt Free Desserts is a steal at the current price of $24.95. Even if you aren’t gluten-free, these recipes will add balance to your diet, positively impacting blood-sugar and energy levels. You’ll also learn about the advantages of using alternate ingredients to benefit your health. The information provided in this e-book is both illuminating and motivating, and will encourage you on a path to optimal health.
