Sugar Free Pecan Snowball Cookies

Another excellent recipe my good friend Wendy shared with me for you guys to enjoy over the holidays.

With a little planning and discipline, there is no good reason what so ever to gain weight simply because the holiday season is upon us. There are far too many healthy recipes, we have a great many here at David’s Way. Try some of our recipes with your family instead of letting yourself be tempted by sugary foods that will cause you to pack on weight. You might just find an unhealthy family member or friend turning their life around once they realize the can still enjoy many foods while losing weight. And, the best part is our recipes will never lead to “hangry” cravings for more as they are all sugar free and diabetic friendly.
