On the Importance of Dessert

I have a deep mistrust  of people who claim they’re not “dessert people.” First of all, everyone is a dessert person. Your body is literally programmed to respond like a rabid monkey to anything that is loaded with sugar and smells like heaven. Second, walking away from  a delectable pastry without any remorse clearly reveals a few psychological problems). You just can’t go  to a coffeeshop and not have your soul quiver for at least one cookie on display. More importantly, “desserts” encompasses a wide breadth of foods from scones to parfaits to ice cream. There’s a dessert for everyone, whether you like it or not. So I’m sorry, sir, but I will not entertain your notion that you are not a “dessert person” because  I don’t even know what that means.

This also brings me to another dessert-related rant. You don’t have to eliminate sweets for dietary purposes. It is a noble and difficult choice to cut our sugar, but if you’re responsible in how you do it and maintain the right exercise plan, it’s not necessary. Of course, sweets are easy to overindulge on, due to their ability to hit every neurological pathway in our system ( or something like  that). It takes vast fortitude to withstand the temptation of sugar-loaded goodies, so for those making this arduous battle, remember that a little indulgence every once  in a while is not only healthy, it can also save you from more extreme dietary break later. Just something to think about in this world of delectable treats! If you need me, I’ll be over here, where the cake is…
