Your Just Desserts: What’s in your Sweets?

It’s not true that diabetics and hypertensives can no longer indulge. The keyword is moderation.

For your sweet tooth, choose moderate amounts of sweets and modified-fat desserts (low in saturated fat).

For example, reach out for fruits, low-fat or fat-free fruit yogurt, fruit ices, sherbet, angel food cake, jello, and low-fat ice cream.

Bake your cookies, cakes, and pie crusts using unsaturated oil or soft margarines, egg whites or egg substitutes, and fat-free milk

Candies offer healthier options too, like the ones with little or no fat: hard candy, gumdrops, jelly beans, and candy corn. And when buying, don’t forget to read the Nutrition Facts food label so you can pick the products lowest in saturated fat and calories.
