I’m Craving Something Sweet. Are There any Tasty Paleo Desserts?

paleo desserts

One of the cardinal rules of the paleo diet is that sugar is a major NO-NO. This one rule scares off most people from the paleo diet.“How in the world am I to live without sugar?”… “Whaaat! No sugar??? You must be crazy!”

That’s generally how most people will react. Telling them that they are sweet enough and sugar is not a necessity is going to put you in mortal danger.

The reason most people balk at the idea of cutting out sugar is because they have no idea of what the alternatives are. They only see the major sacrifices that they will be making. The ice-creams, cookies, candies, cocktails, etc. have all become out of reach. Comfort foods that they were used to since young are not allowed.

Don’t panic!

As a paleo dieter, you do have options. There are many paleo recipe books that are focused on creating yummy but healthy desserts while abiding by the core paleo concepts.

Almond flour, maple syrup, coconut oil and many natural ingredients are used to make brownies, shakes, smoothies, ice-creams, etc. In fact, many fruit juices when frozen on a stick will be just as good as any commercial sherbet that you may purchase. The difference is that on a paleo diet, your sherbet will be made out of real fruit juice and not some chemical concoction that was frozen and created to simulate real fruit flavors.

Cakes, brownies, cookies, ice-creams and most comfort foods can be made while on the paleo diet. You just need to know what ingredients to use to substitute to comply with the paleo requirements. In order to do this, it will be necessary to do some research and test out the recipes.

It may take some time for you to get the hang of it but once you can whip up tasty desserts paleo style, you’ll never need to worry about reneging on your paleo diet simply because your sweet tooth is demanding. For many people, just cutting and keeping some strawberries or pineapples in the fridge serves as a dessert.

They just need to eat something sweet. Initially, you may think, “But that’s so boring!” It may be boring… but obesity and inflammation is not exciting either. These are the consequences of eating commercially produced desserts and junk food.

It cannot be argued that even though paleo desserts may be sweet and yummy, it may take a while for the average person to adapt to paleo desserts. This is perfectly natural and understandable. Depending on when you made the switch to paleo, you would probably have been eating sugary stuff for years.

It will take time to adapt but if you stay the course and make paleo desserts to combat your cravings, within a space of weeks or a month, you will find that your cravings diminish to the point where you don’t even miss sugary snacks.

Once you have reached this point, you will truly love the paleo desserts and your compliance with the paleo diet will be very high because you have crossed the most difficult hump and conquered your sugar cravings.

Congrats on the job well done. You would have achieved something that thousands of people have failed at. This sense of achievement will be sweeter than any dessert you could ever buy.

 

The Effect That a True All Natural Skin Care Formula Can Have on Your Skin is Amazing By Laurel Levine

 all natural beauty formula

The effect that a true all natural skin care formula can have on your skin is absolutely amazing. Ingredients such as plant oils, waxes, and extracts combined with specially developed protein fusions and carefully selected enzymes can seemingly perform miracles. These formulas will give you skin that is firmer, fuller, and more wrinkle free than you would have ever hoped that a product could.

The major problem that you are going to run into when attempting to improve the health of your skin is that there are hardly any formulas out there like the one I just described. Most of the formulas that are claimed to be ‘all natural’ are anything but that, and many of them will be made up of ingredients that can actually set you back in your quest for healthier, younger looking skin.

What you need in order to change the way that you look is an all natural skin care product designed to improve the firmness and elasticity you have lost over the years. You need components that are capable of inciting your system to improve the production of your collagen and elastin. There must also be compounds present that will stem the continuous assault on your hyaluronic acid polymer by a particular variety of enzymes in the skin.

The answer to smoothing out your wrinkles that you will find most often when searching for an effective formula, are products that either seek to introduce new firming tissue into the skin, or those that are designed to alleviate wrinkles by relaxing the muscle underneath. Neither of these methods is going to solve any of your problems, and you could end up with permanent damage from using one of these types of products.

The supposed all natural skin care products that provide you with bovine derived collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid only have a fleeting effect on the skin. Hyaluronic acid will temporarily bind water to the surface of the skin, but that is about the only positive thing the ingredients will do. The truth is that none of the compounds can even be absorbed by the skin, so nothing about your appearance really changes.

The so-called relaxing compounds found in the other type of low quality wrinkle reducers actually paralyze your muscles, making them unable to move. Paralyze is a word to strong to prominently appear on a label, so less threatening words like ‘relaxing’ and ‘freezing’ appear instead. Continued use of this type of formula may leave you unable to regain control of your muscles.

The safest and most effective all natural skin care formulas when it comes to reversing the effects of aging are those that contain the combination of Functional Keratin and Phytessence Wakame. Functional keratin is made up of a pair of special keratin proteins that when fused together promote the accelerated growth of new collagen and elastin. Phytessence Wakame kelp extract disrupts the activity of the enzymes in your skin that break your hyaluronic acid down, enabling levels of this polymer to significantly increase.

These are the all natural skin care formulas that actually get something positive done.
