03 Nov Craving sweets?
Posted at 19:13h in My Folsom Chiropractor Blog
- FRUITS: Grab a delicious serving of fruit. Watermelon, cantaloupe and oranges will really satisfy your sweet tooth. They’re good for your health, low in fat, and a perfect place to start when you want to make healthier choices for your body and overall wellness. Try and experiment with fruits that aren’t a normal part of your diet.
- PRETZELS: There are covered pretzels and other flavored pretzels that offer much more nutritional advantages and far less fat than candy. They are even sold in individual serving sizes for ease in dieting. They’re great to bring along when you go see a movie or on any other outing. Instead of being tempted by the high-calorie and expensive snacks at a concession stand, bring out a bag of pretzels and a bottle of water.
- SNOW CONES: Although snow cones are traditionally sweetened with sugary syrups, there are better alternatives. Instead of orange syrup, sweeten them with orange juice. You only need to use a bit of juice, then you have a healthy snack that is mostly water and partly vitamin-filled, healthy juice. It will leave you full and satisfied, and it will leave your sweet tooth happy as well.
- GRANOLA MIX: A granola mix, filled with dried fruits like raisins and other healthy treats of your choice can really fill the snack craving and the sweet tooth. As long as it’s measured out carefully, this snack is ideal for any dieter. Dried fruits by themselves can also be a great alternative to candy. Packs of raisins are portable and great to eat on the run, but you’ll want to choose organic when it comes to raisins in order to make the healthiest choice.
