One of the most popular blogs we’ve ever posted showed what 200 calories looked like in different foods. Since this blog went viral all over the interwebs (15 million views and counting!), we’ve had our thinking caps on to find a suitable follow up. And we think we’ve done it.
With the help of Jess at My Clean Treats, we’ve come up with a photographic series showing the dramatic difference in calories between the EXACT SAME dessert made with HEALTHY ingredients. Yes, it can be done, and yes the “healthy” version tastes just as good as the “unhealthy” version. And when you realize how much more of the “healthy” version you can have, it will taste even sweeter!
So feast your eyes on the following yummy desserts, with the corresponding “unhealthy” and “healthy” recipe listed underneath. We’d like to thank Jess for her hard work, and look forward to a few more taste tests. You can check out Jess’s website by going to www.mycleantreats.com and on Instagram.
