i heart dessertDessert For Runners, Call It Sweet Rewards!

I don’t know about you but the more miles I do run the craving for sweets goes to the roof after…

You see a 12-mile run can burn more than 1,500 calories. So it’s best that after your next long run to refuel right.

How about a healthy meal and then satisfy your craving for dessert with a little trick-or-treat. However, better watch those calories, aim to keep it between 250 and 450 calories.

There are plenty to chose from. I fro one mix it up with fruits and cup cakes. I don’t know about you but cup cakes are my weakness…

Homemade Dessert For Runners

And talking about cupcakes, today I will be eating a number of these – and get away with it!

Yeah, I did ONLY a 5 miler today, but it’s my kids’ birthday and the kitchen is already smelling so good from these homemade dessert for runners (that’s what I call ’em) as I got home from an early morning run.

I don’t really count the calories. I figured 2 or 3 of these sweet rewards will be burned fast anyway. Plus, with homemade cupcakes we (at least in my household) try to keep it as healthy as possible.

Not Your Kitchen’s Dessert For Runners
