The Dessert Diet Club is still in its infant days. I have built the website, posted a few posts, started my cooking show, and even self-published a book by the same name. But The Dessert Diet Club is not just a blog about healthy desserts and a book. It is my vision for the future.
So, where did it start? Growing up, my mom joined this slimming group where a bunch of women in the community would get together once a week to weigh in and get their mealplans.
I joined my mom for a few months in high school when I wanted to lose fat. The diet felt boring at times and my mom and I lived for our cheat meals every week. But that is where my dream really started.
While I disagree with a lot of the guidelines they give, I dream of having my own group one day where people could get together and also talk about health and work on becoming healthier versions of themselves, but I want to get rid of a lot of the things I did not agree with, such as mainly focussing on weight and not focussing on each individual and their unique desires and needs.
I hope that I can grow The Dessert Diet Club into a community of people who are trying to be healthy together but who refuse to settle for boring diets and want food freedom.
If you think about it, most people just want to be and feel healthy and comfortable in their bodies while eating foods that they enjoy and not feeling deprived, and while having healthy relationships with food. That is why the tagline for my book is: “The Indulgent Guide To Food Freedom”.
Hopefully, at the end of this year, I will be able to host gatherings like tea parties that centre around healthy treats, where we can talk about health while having a good time.
I am also going to start selling healthy desserts to women in my neighbourhood because I want to practice my skills when it comes to sales.
And the cooking show… I started filming episodes for The Dessert Diet Club cooking show recently, so I can teach people how they can make healthy desserts at home.
I definitely have a long-term mindset when it comes to The Dessert Diet Club. As you can tell, I have a lot of plans for The Dessert Diet Club, but as I am currently flying solo, I can only do so much at a time. But in a few years, The Dessert Diet Club could be a delicious monster.
