I am a really picky eater and would much rather eat sugary treats than vegetables and even fruits.  However, I am trying to incorporate more healthy food into my diet.  I do enjoy many fruits and vegetables, but desserts are so much better and therein lies my problem.  So I’ve been looking into tastier options.  Here are 13 that I have found:
