My One Rule


If you or someone you love struggles with weight, you’re certainly not alone … 50% of women and 40% of men in the U.S. do too. And the obesity rates in our children are rising too.

Thirteen years ago, I decided this wasn’t going to happen in my family and I took a stand … and put the One Rule in effect to keep us trim:

I only make desserts and treats from scratch using real, whole food ingredients.

No boxed mixes; only gluten-free flours, organic eggs, etc.

The corollary to this Rule is:

I never use processed sugar, rarely use natural sweeteners like honey and maple syrup, and instead rely on Stevia and unsweetened organic applesauce.

Two benefits of the Rule:

  • It is truly a treat and limited in quantity to the batch prepared and the time you have. You can’t go to the pantry and get another bag of cookies, etc.!
  • Desserts and treats just become wholesome foods to enjoy and savor for their nutritional value. There’s no guilt!
