About

Ciao! Or should I say, chow?

Thanks for visiting Skinny Sweet Treats! For the past few months I’ve been going through a major lifestyle change, beginning with how much I exercised and continuing through what I ate. I’ve always tried to be “healthy” per se, yet still found myself reaching for processed fatty foods when I was given the chance. Then I discovered a way to have the best of both worlds: by making the foods I’d always loved (such as cookie dough, pancakes, carrot cake cupcakes, the list goes on and on…) but simply creating healthier versions of them.

That’s where this blog comes in!

I decided to share my love for food, baking, & healthy recipes with others after being prompted several times by friends & family who frequently enjoyed my creations. Through this blog, I hope to inspire others to enjoy a happier, healthier life without giving up the delicious tastes of the food they love.

I post every Wednesday and Sunday, and am always open to suggestions for new foods to “healthify”. Feel free to contact me any time about recipes, substitutions, etc., I’d love to hear from you!

Bon appétit!

  1. I love the idea behind your blog! Part of me wants to be healthy and the other part of me wants dessert. I look forward to seeing your recipes and finding ways to lighten up the things I love to eat.

    • Thank you!! I’m the same way: I want to eat healthy butttt dessert’s my fav meal of the day! So why not combine the two and be able to indulge, guilt-free in healthy treats every day? Thanks for stopping by!! 🙂

  2. I’m so glad I found this lovely blog of yours! I love your food philosophy, mine is similar- making healthier version of what’s out there, including sweets, and enjoying and sharing with the world. Look forward to your posts…

    • Thank you! You’re so sweet!! I know, why give up the foods you love when you could just make them a little bit healthier and enjoy guilt-free!! Thanks for stopping by!

    • Thank you! When I first began eating healthier I was surprised at how simple it was! I found that just by replacing a few ingredients with healthier options, you’re able to still enjoy your favorite food! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like what you see here! 🙂

  5. Havens! I am so glad that I looked at your blog….I stopped eating gluten and dairy over the summer and I’ve been looking for yummy recipes. I should have known you would have the answers! 🙂 Proud of you. Thank you and come see me soon!
