Simple Spring Pear Cake

Lately I've been playing around with baking. I have a huge sweet tooth but also know well enough that sugar wreaks havoc on the body. I break out, get bloated and moody as hell. It's essentially like going through PMS every time I eat sweets. As a Holistic Nutritionist I try to find alternatives to refined sugary desserts to help lessen the negative impact they have on my body.

Broiled Grapefruit & Hazelnuts

Do you like desserts? Uh, duh. Do you like healthy desserts? Uh.....maybe? Well friends, this quick, sweet and healthy treat is my answer to the raging sweet tooth I on occasion battle. You too?  I know it's a struggle. I've been replacing fruits and natural sweets in place of more traditional (read: processed and full of refined sugars) treats for awhile now, and while sometimes nothing can truly replace a glorious donut or chocolate bar, the addition of these natural sweet snacks has actually lessened my sugar cravings.
