If you’ve ever wondered why it’s such a good idea to end a meal with dessert—besides the allure of the sweet, rich flavor—there’s actually a scientific reason! Food scientists explain this as a “sweet stomach,” when our senses tell us that we no longer want to eat delicious food for our sake, and we are ready to experience a new taste.

Research also shows that eating sweets helps to ease digestion and increase serotonin levels in the brain, making us feel calmer and happier. Perhaps the best dessert is chocolate, which is known to help lower blood pressure and improve heart health. But let’s be honest – we enjoy chocolate just for the taste of it!

The chef at our waterfront restaurant in Cayman has created a rich and decadent dessert in our Millionaire Chocolate Tart, which includes chocolate discs and gold leaf decorated caramel, chocolate sorbet, and chocolate sponges for an elegant presentation.

We all want to be one of those healthy people who never crave sweets during the day and can be completely satisfied by eating fruits instead. But it is difficult for most of us. Many of us love sweets and eat sweets. It can brighten our day, and make meal times a little more enjoyable. However, sugar is not the healthiest thing for us or our waistlines. Many of us try to limit our consumption of sweet foods to help reduce any harm that our sweet tooth can bring us. This means that we should avoid eating sweets and sweets all the time, and we may begin to limit ourselves to one dessert per day, and only eat certain fruits or flavored seltzer when we have a craving.

Now you must also be thinking that when is the best time to eat sweets. Would it be healthier to eat sweets after lunch, because you’ll have time to eliminate extra calories before you go to sleep at night? Or would it be better to eat after dinner, if you have too much time left during the day to minimize any chances?

Experts say that the best time to eat sweets is after lunch. If you eat lunch, you have little time to burn calories for the rest of the day. Try to eat sweets one hour after lunch. If you eat it right after a meal, you may become bloated and feel uncomfortable. However, you also don’t want to eat sweets on an empty stomach because your body will absorb them too quickly, and it can lead to a major blood sugar crash and a huge sugar crash later.

Experts agree that the best time to enjoy dessert is after a meal. When you eat a balanced dessert after a meal, you can benefit from the nutrients in the meal to stabilize your blood sugar from the sweets. From a psychological point of view, it is better to eat it after a meal. When you eat sweets after your meal, it signals a feeling of doneness to your body, making it less likely to trigger you into snacking inadvertently.

Another way that you can have your dessert and enjoy it without negatively affecting your well-being is to have it after a meal. Even if it is only a ten-minute walk away. You should drink plenty of water before and after eating sweets so that you can avoid overeating. Also, try your best to stick to one part.
