Small tweaks can make a big impact. Maybe you’ve gotten this advice from a personal trainer or dietitian, who encouraged you to take baby steps toward a larger goal. As true and useful as that notion is for creating long-lasting health habits, it’s equally true for your desserts. Think of it this way: Baking a batch of chocolate chip cookies is really just doing more of the same. But you could make one small change to the recipe – like adding walnuts – and have an entirely new cookie in your jar. Now, that advice doesn’t sound so nutty, does it?
