Why Sweet Things Can Actually Be Good For You – The Benefits Of Treating Yourself!

For far too long, our media has been saturated with articles about dieting and how to lose weight to get “the perfect body”.

It seems that every magazine cover, especially those aimed at women, is telling us that we should be a certain size and shape. This will, of course, mean avoiding cakes, biscuits, chocolate and pretty much anything we may consider a treat.

But there is one fundamental issue (and lots of smaller ones) that these articles do not take into consideration. Eating something sweet can have a positive impact on our physical and mental health and wellbeing.

While we would not condone sitting down and eating six puddings in a row every day (although with our range of delicious flavours, it can prove very tempting) we are well aware that treating yourself to a pudding can be good for you.

Life can be tough, so we believe that having some pure and simple pleasure – in pudding form – is entirely harmless.

“Everything in moderation”, my friend’s grandpa used to say, and he always enjoyed a good dessert. He also lived to nearly 99 years old, so he’s pretty good proof of the power of something sweet.

So here’s what the magazines should actually be telling us; sometimes it’s ok to give in to your cravings

I’ve certainly never seen anyone eat a dessert without relishing every bite.

Let’s face it, having a little bit of what you fancy every now and then is not going to move mountains.

We are proud of our desserts, as they are both super health-conscious and the perfect sweet treat.

With Pudology’s puds, you can indulge your sweet tooth without feeling guilty or worrying about the impact on your health.

We only use dark chocolate, which comes with a whole selection of health benefits, thanks to being packed full of antioxidants. These little fellas help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, fight diabetes and rid the body of nasty free radicals.

Dark chocolate also contains high levels of minerals and vitamins and is heart-healthy, meaning small amounts can significantly reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

We also include a number of other yummy ingredients in our recipes, such as coconut milk, strawberry puree and Brazilian orange oil.

The taste sensation will help to satisfy your cravings and ensure you won’t be tempted to binge later.

What we eat has been scientifically proven to have a huge impact on our mood.

The pleasure that we gain from noshing on our favourite treats comes from the serotonin, a neurotransmitter which helps to calm the body, reduce stress and anxiety and positively contribute towards a good night’s sleep.

We don’t recommend stuffing yourself silly with treats but simply having a balanced diet that includes something sweet.

All of our desserts are gluten-free, dairy-free, wheat-free and vegan, making this the ideal way to enjoy life’s simple pleasures, by eating puddings that have been created with love, care and passion.

    I couldn’t agree more, and I can think of only one other company’s products I love as much as the Chocolate Orange Pud I had today. I can’t wait to try more of them. Banoffee next, I think. 🙂
