Cravings, Gym and The Yummy Desserts (which are actually good for you)!

As I mentioned before, I try to stay away from sweets as much as I can. After spending 2 hours in the gym and only burning about 700 calories, you start to really think if its worth it to eat ANYTHING :) 
Of course we need food to give our bodies energy. Its almost like getting gas for your car. If you put good quality gas the car will be running way better than if you fuel it with low quality gas. Same with our bodies. We need to fuel our bodies with GOOD QUALITY FUEL such as fruits and veggies, lean meats, whole wheat,  fish and so on. In order for our bodies to get enough nutrients and vitamins we must follow a special diet...which is extremely boring!!! I mean, who has the time to plan out and actually follow a plan? 
Everyone knows that salt and sugar are two main reasons why people get diabetes, high blood pressures, kidney and liver problems as well as Obesity.
I can NEVER say no to salt....I do try to avoid using salt wherever I can but its not always possible. 
When it comes to sugar, I can control myself but to a point.
That is why I found these healthy desserts that kill my cravings but do not add pounds of fat to my body.

Honey Greek Yogurt Fillo Cups

        <p>Flaky pastry cups are the perfect complement to a creamy filling of Greek yogurt and strawberries tossed with sugar, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice and topped with a drizzle of honey.</p>

Pear-Raspberry Jelly Roll Shortcakes

        <p>Neither a cake nor a pastry, jelly roll shortcake is a decadence in between. This artful version gets its zip from minced crystallized ginger—a perfect complement to the combination of pear and raspberry.</p>

Orange Rice Pudding

        <p>Tired of the same old premade pudding cup? Try this flavorful—and lowfat—twist on the classic, made with Italian short-grain rice, grated orange zest, cinnamon and vanilla.</p>
