Swap This: Sweet Treats
Cravings for sweet treats happen, but luckily there are ways to deal with them. Deprivation shouldn’t be part of your healthy lifestyle, but indulging in too much too often can throw you off track from your goals. If you’re hankering for something sweet, you can get your fix while getting nutritional benefits as well!
Popsicle for frozen grapes and pitted cherries
- Most popsicles are composed entirely of artificial fruit juice and refined sugars. Frozen grapes give you the same refreshing fruity taste and Throw in some cherries for a real sweet treat.
Milk chocolate for 70% dark chocolate
- A lot of people can’t live without chocolate. Luckily, dark chocolate has more fibre, magnesium, and iron than milk chocolate, while milk chocolate has way more sugar! Try having almond butter or a peppermint tea with the dark chocolate to soften the bitter taste.
Gummy treats for cherries, berries and grapes.
- Cherries, berries and grapes will give you the same sweet fix, without all the added sugar. Fill up a little bowl with some colourful berries instead of grabbing a bag of gummy worms. You’ll get loads more vitamins and antioxidants.
