Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day

The month of October is National Dessert Month! October 14, 2021 is also National Dessert Day!

The month of October is National Dessert Month!
The month of October is National Dessert Month!

There are millions of dessert recipes that are outstanding. Food bloggers are a growing population and gorgeous desserts that cause drooling are everywhere! They can be difficult to eat in moderation. It seems the more you eat them, the more you want them, even crave them. Sugar has a way of causing you to want more! The average person now consumes almost 130 pounds of added sugar per year and that’s a problem. 

The month of October is National Dessert Month!

Weight control is a huge problem for 2/3 of you, so Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits site will limit desserts, except lightened ones, and a few of my more caloric favorites that I bake for holidays.

Check out Kerry's Dessert Recipes page on her Healthy Diet Habits website!
