We all have cravings, whether it is savory or sweet, we have them. For me personally it is ALWAYS sweet! Luckily I have learned the beauty in alternatives. This allows me to subdue my cravings but in a healthier way. Now, go ahead and have a piece of cake or ice cream or chips every once in a while. But, I know for me if I acted on my cravings, it would be a daily occurrence, and let's just say my health goals would take a major set back. I'm here to give you some great healthy alternatives to help with those craving, sweet or salty!
Apple with peanut butter
Whipped Cream - I literally eat this with a spoon instead of icecream
Banana and peanut butter
Halo Top- healthier form of ice cream
Nice cream- Usually made with frozen banana, cocoa powder, vanilla, and coconut milk (you can look up recipes on Pinterest or Google.)
Fresh strawberries and blueberries, topped with whipped cream
Oikios Triple zero greek yogurt, with fresh berries or granola (I use Love Crunch Granola)
Cottage cheese with honey
Plain rice cake with peanut butter or mashed avocado
Roasted chic peas
Almonds- There are A LOT of different flavors now, to offer variety
Veggies and hummus
Whisps- these are a Parmesan cheese crisp usually found at Walmart
These are a few of my favorite alternatives to make when a craving hits. Hope you enjoy them! Happy snackin'
