(and I actually meant do you think if your sil only made desserts from 'on plan ingredients' that it would be more enjoyable and not an issue for you, but it sounds like, if I'm understanding your response correctly, that it doesn't matter either way, it's the fact that it's a richer dessert type food, not what the particular ingredients are, is that correct?)
