5 DESSERT RECIPES FOR BUSY PEOPLE

You know what they say – there’s always room for dessert. It is because the pleasure of eating the same food (e.g. a steak) decreases as you eat them. Hence by introducing a new variety of food (in this case, a dessert), it offers something different from the main course – a new stimulus. Thus, there is a clear separation between being full and feeling sated. Theory aside, here are five easy dessert recipes that do not require too much effort to make – perfect for busy people!
