I have a huge sweet tooth, so I love when I can convince myself that the sweet treats I eat are also healthy. Of course, when I saw Clean Sweets: Simple High-Protein Desserts for One by Arman Liew at the library, I had to pick it up. I have to admit, cooking just for myself (instead of making sure everyone in the family is happy) sounded like a nice break also.
Author Arman Liew is the creator of The Big Man’s World blog. He started out writing about travels and his recipe experiments; he lost a lot of weight and wanted to eat dessert but stay healthy. Eventually, his recipes were so popular they became the main focus of the blog.
Clean Sweets contains recipes for breakfast, mug cakes, cookies, frozen treats, and more. All of the recipes have gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan, and paleo options. I don’t follow any of those diets, but I find it doesn’t hurt to leave out wheat and sugar on occasion.
I haven’t read the whole book yet, but I did skim and all the recipes look delicious. I will report back later this week!
