DESSERTS Here are a few ideas people have on dessert and my responses: “I have fruit after dinner.” >>> Makes sense because it is a sweet way to conclude a meal. Fructose is the sugar in fruit. It is still dessert. “I don’t eat dessert but I do have a glass of hot chocolate.” >>>That’s dessert. There’s a lot of sugar in hot chocolate. “I don’t like chocolate.” >>> Ok, what about apple crisp!!
This pumpkin pie was a treat given to me by one of my Pilates clients after my first lumpectomy last November. And yes, it's not a cancer fighting food. It's a celebratory one. "Once in a while a little treat is ok," said my doctors and nurses when I called them about this little slice of pie. Hey, I didn't want cancer again. So this is a case where I was told, it is okay to have your pie and eat it too.
