Hi. Welcome to “A Dessert Diet” (this site’s name as of 14 November 2011!!!). Here, you’ll find healthier desserts that are not necessarily healthy, but healthier. Glad to clear that up.
- I love book/baking-supply shopping (always awesome to see new products that manufacturers try to empty our wallets with)
- I love “How I Met Your Mother” and Neil Patrick Harris
- I like Joseph Chang too. And some other stuff you’ll see splattered and smeared boldly over more than a couple of posts.
- My favourite colour is yellow
I focus on healthier baking with reduced use of white sugar and white flour (because people, including myself, can readily find stuff with only white flour and white sugar anywhere and can have it anytime for a very affordable price).
I do not believe that adding chocolate chips into oatmeal makes the oatmeal unhealthy. Or anything else for that matter. I’m actually not too fond of oatmeal. I think its yucky.
I do not believe that just having a little white sugar makes a slice of cake bad-for-you.
I do not believe that having some animal product makes me a sinner. Or an unhealthy person.
I do not believe in eating salads and calling them a meal when they consist of a bunch of raw vegetables and an optional dressing made from vinegar.
I do not believe in calling a serving of fruit a dessert (or even a meal).
I do not believe in sugar-free everything because empty calories are better than sweeteners whose names most people probably cannot pronounce let alone know what they contain.
I do not believe in pouring my life onto the internet for the whole world to examine.
Okay. What then do I believe?
I believe in brown sugar/black sugar/ pure maple syrup/ honey/ condensed milk. Sometimes I have stevia (for the sake of saving some calories) but not all the time because I think it has an odd aftertaste.
I believe in having a fair share of carbs, potato chips, cakes, pastries and fried food (though I don’t like them:fried food I mean) and not running 10 miles in guilt after. But not in nut butter form.
Ultimately, I believe in having a life that is not food-centred.
I may have a food blog, but it is not the most dominant part of life. Still, it is a part of my life I treasure and love because a) I love blogging b) I get to rant c) I love to meet new friends!
*Note: Occasionally, I also enjoy making digs at our education system and sarcastic comments at innocent commemorations I-actually-never-celebrate-hence-don’t-quite-care-about-enough-to-dislike, revealing to you my embarassingly (btw, this is not a real word) impossible dreams, trying to make you jealous of my happy time in the Pingtung (Taiwan) countryside, blabber to you about my family, and boring you with lame anecdotes (sorry about that!). For more of these, just tune in to my page for crap.
If you have any questions, have anything to say (even if its negative), just drop me a comment or email me at email@example.com and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
