Today I’m excited to share 11 mouth-watering no sugar desserts with you because as you know, I’m a sugar-a-holic.
For the longest time, sugar didn’t bother me, but eventually I started experiencing Candida symptoms. After learning more about Candida, I knew I had to make a change. I began by decreasing the amount of sugar I was eating and did a Candida cleanse. After I was certain that the Candida was under control, I started eating homemade sweets again that were made with alternative sweeteners. I created my free Guide to Natural Sugar Substitutes to teach you about my favourite ways to enjoy dessert without having to compromise my health.
