The holiday’s are here, which means that social lives tends to grow, as well as waistlines. Parties filled with tons of food and decadent desserts make it tough to stick to healthy eating plans. Although temptation is bound to kick in, there is no rule that says you have to eat everything within reach. However, it is the holiday’s after all, and you may want to live in the moment and enjoy a few indulgences. Making your own healthier version of a favorite dessert will allow you to control what ingredients go into the recipe, meaning – you can have your dessert and eat it too. We found this recipe for a Chocolate Pecan Pie, and while it may sound like it will completely derail your progress, think again! It is made with healthier ingredients, as well as a special ingredient rarely found in a pie. It can be made gluten-free, sugar-free, or vegan. Head on over to Chocolate Covered Katie’s blog for the full recipe and instructions. Enjoy!
