My name is Lauren, and I am a student, a foodie, and the author of The Healthy Indulgences Cookbook: A Guide To Baking All-Natural, Sugar-Free Desserts. I create sugar-free and gluten-free dessert recipes featuring all natural ingredients. During my time as an undergraduate at Duke University, I created these recipes to help me lose 30 lbs and cut back on the amount of processed foods I was eating.
The goal of my kitchen experiments is to come up with recipes for lower carbohydrate desserts that are every bit as good as their sugar-laden counterparts. The delicious successes end up on this blog! My crack team of willing food testers includes family, friends, roommates, and hungry looking acquaintances. They help me to ensure that you too, have sweet success in the sugar-free kitchen!
Since 2008, I have divided my time between blogging and managing life as a college student. It has been an incredible journey! The more I learn about nutrition science and weight loss, the more I realize how much I don’t know.
