Want a guilt-free sugar fix? Here's the answer.

When you’re dieting hard, a small dose of something sweet coupled with a hefty amount of healthy fat can stop cravings in their tracks and keep you on point. Pine nuts are surprisingly sweet when cooked, and provide oleic acid, which lowers cholesterol, and pinolenic acid, which triggers the release of hunger-suppressing hormones. Mix this dessert up in minutes and sleep soundly with a full feeling in your stomach and the knowledge that you haven’t sabotaged your diet.

Did You Know?

Pine nuts are high in vitamin E, a potent antioxidant that maintains the integrity of cell membranes in the skin.
