Have your cake and eat it too! Satisfy your food cravings the nutritious way.
You’re on a roll. You took a pledge to eat healthily, and your first three days have been a breeze. That is, until you have a bad day or pass some goodies in the office kitchen, and a craving kicks in! Don’t let your cravings get in the way of your healthy lifestyle. Satisfy them the nutritious way! We’ll help you through them with our three tips for fulfilling food cravings the next time you get the munchies.
1. Salty. A bag of potato chips is not the only option for fulfilling your salt cravings. Opt for one of the many healthy snack options that contain beneficial nutrients without the excess fat and calories. Homemade trail mix, hummus, popcorn, and nuts are just a few ways to tackle this craving. For a quick go-to recipe, try our Zucchini Hummus or our Slow Cooker Cinnamon & Honey Nuts.
2. Sweet. Don’t fight your sweet tooth. Indulge it the healthy way, by making smart snacking choices. Healthy sweets can be achieved by simply exchanging milk chocolate for dark chocolate or sugary candy for fresh, sweet fruit. Looking for a few recipes that promise to fulfill that sweet tooth of yours? Try our Berry Popsicle, Banana Blueberry Bars, or our Almond Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies.
3. Crunchy. Crunch cravers love anything that with that crispy, crackling texture as they bite into it. You can easily satisfy your need for crunch in a healthy way by choosing nutritious foods like popcorn, roasted chickpeas, nuts, seeds, and even frozen grapes. To get your crunch on, try our Chili-Lime Spiced Pumpkin Seeds or our Skinny Peanut Butter-Yogurt Dip served with apple slices.
Whether you crave salty, sweet, or crunchy foods, there are ways to fulfill your cravings without giving in to unhealthy foods. With these tips, you can be confident that you’ll know just what to do when food cravings hit.
