UNSWEETENED-HEART is a collection of cherishing and sweet-loving dessert with no added sugar.
Sometimes I will use STEVIA as a substitute, sometimes I just won’t put any sweetener in my desserts.
There is nothing wrong in assuming sugar, the wrong is in the use the food industry has been doing of it.
Wrong is evil added sugar EVERYWHERE. For example if you go and buy lunch somewhere in England and you buy a salad with a dressing and a pastry of some sort (pizza, quiche) or a sandwich and a drink, well, if you are not careful you easily have the 90% of chances to eat sugar. Your lunch is a dessert even when you don’t want it to be.
Let’s see where the word “dessert” comes from:
Des-sert [dih-zurt] (love the phonetic notation)
mid 16th century: from French, past participle of desservir ‘clear the table’, from des- (expressing removal) + servir ‘to serve’.
As for the origin a dessert is something eaten at the end of the meal when all the rest has been cleared from the table. French in fact would often have cheese as dessert. Apparently dessert doesn’t mean “We will throw all the molasses, refined sugars and sugar production wastes at reach on your table and you will feed from them as there was no tomorrow”. Your starter doesn’t have to have added sugar as for your main course, snack and dessert. Lot of food contain sugars anyway, you won’t get short trust me.
I want to eat refined sugar when I actually choose to eat it and within food I am expecting to contain it. It’s a protest, it’s pushing taste buds out of the comfort zone, it’s caring and understanding for who can’t eat sugar: I do prepare unsweetened sweets.
