Cravings, we all get them and cannot stand them. Here are a few fixes and replacements to my cravings.
#1 Are you craving chocolate, but do not want to break your diet?!?!?!? I have the solution :) . The first is Attune Probiotic Chocolate. (They taste amazing too). The bars are only 90 calories per bar. 15mg of sodium, 8 grams of sugar and 12 carbs with 1gram of protein. The flavors that are currently in my fridge are milk chocolate crunch, mint chocolate crisp, and vanilla blueberry. They taste amazing just like Hershey’s chocolate, but healthy of course!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! :))
#2 Second on the list is Arctic Zero. It is an ice cream replacement that has 120 to 150 calories PER PINT THATS THE ENTIRE TUB OF ICECREAM. With 4 grams of protein per half cup and 6 grams of sugar per half cup. It made me really happy when I saw it. Right now the flavors I have are Oreo (favorite), mint chocolate, and chocolate peanut butter. Its yummy and helps you break your diet in a more healthy way.
#3 Skinny cow ice cream is third on the list. Skinny cow ice cream has more flavor and it is thicker than the arctic zero ice cream, but higher in calories. This product has ice cream containers, ice cream sandwiches, ice cream bars, and recently candy (which I have not tried). I highly recommend the ice cream containers for their flavor, but they are 150 calories for a container. I typically only eat half of the container and save the rest for later. Basically these are my top 3 got to sweet treats for when I get a craving!
#4 Next up are the Archer Farm Organic fruit strips. These strips taste EXACTLY like fruit roll ups thats why they are so lovable and tasty. One strip is 45 calories with 5mg of sodium, 85mg of potassium, 9g of sugar and 1g of dietary fibers. There are many different flavors and I love them all I do not have a favorite :) blueberry, apricot, wildberry, strawberry, pomegranate, tropical, raspberry, ect…
#5 Fruitzio Freeze dried Fruit Snacks yay!!! These delicious freeze dried fruit snacks are made with real fruit and come in many different flavors: strawberry, pineapple, apple, kiwi, peach, ect… They are vegan, gluten free, nut free, and dairy free. Their medium sized bag contains only 100 calories in the entire bag with 17 grams of natural sugar cane sugar, and 2 grams of protien. They taste great too.
#6 For a salty fix you can make kale chips in a decompressor or a regular oven using olive oil and sea salt. OR you can do what I do and just buy it already made… Brad’s Raw Chips Kale. They also come in cheddar and sun dried tomato. All very good. 14 chips have 120 calories, 90mg of sodium, 3g of sugar, 4g of protein, and 8g of dietary fiber. they go great with fat free hummus or chicken salad :)
#7 Simply Smart Fatfree (0%) milk
One cup is 90calories and 10g of protein. I drink this every morning its that good!
I will be adding more as I scout through and test out health foods. I will only post what is healthy and tastes good. Enjoy!
