I love dessert, but cookies and milk every night don't exactly keep my body camera ready. My secret for enjoying sweets without packing on extra pounds? Homemade vegan treats!
Why vegan? I used to eat an assortment of everything (in moderation). But when I faced surgery to help treat my stomach problems a few years ago, I took the advice of my good friend and New York Times
bestselling author Kathy Freston and gradually adopted a vegan diet
instead. The result? All the pain went away. Plus, I lost weight, my hair and skin look healthier than ever before, and I have more energy. The best part: I don't feel deprived!
Here are three vegan desserts I love! They not only taste amazing, but they're sugar-free, packed with nutrients, and super easy to make. So go ahead: Have your strawberry shortcake and eat it too!
