the guilt-free alternative to junk food that’s so healthy your friends will accuse you of saucery 🙂
Yes you can. In fact this Ginger Cake is just one of the hundreds of dessert and snack recipes that become possible when you eliminate the sugar, flour, eggs, butter, and cream that make for calorie-high but nutritionally-void treats.
And it tastes that way too. Yet you won’t find a sliver of unhealthy ingredients in these 200+ delicious desserts and savory snacks. That’s because these recipes have been gathered, filtered, and improved by a health-conscious fanatic.
As a young woman I experienced this uncomfortable tension for the longest time. All the way from puberty until my mid-thirties.
