So TASTY… 3 Easy Paleo Desserts
If you’ve recently decided to adopt a Paleo lifestyle, you are most likely thinking that dessert is off the table. I must admit that a lot of Paleo dessert recipes look delicious but they are also very high calorie and high fat. I have 3 paleo desserts that will make you as happy as a caveman with matches.
Most recipes call for coconut sugar, honey or maple syrup. They also use a fair amount of nuts, butter, egg yolks and coconut oil.
While I’m not condemning these ingredients (they certainly deserve to be a part of a Paleo Diet), they are high calorie and can easily be over consumed.
Just because a recipe is Paleo doesn’t mean it should be eaten in excess. Just because I eat Paleo doesn’t mean my bad habit of over eating magically went away. I still have to be diligent about my calorie intake and be careful not to justify over-eating because it fits into my Paleo profile.
These 3 easy paleo desserts will curb your sweet tooth quickly without excessive calories. You can easily have one per day as part of a healthy Paleo diet and still stay lean.
Since they’re a lot more work and higher calorie, save the decadent Paleo desserts for special occasions.
