Sweet tooth getting the better of you?
It's that time of year where everyone is making conscious changes to be a healthier version of themselves. One thing that seems to come up a lot with my clients is their sweet tooth and how to curb those sugar cravings!
Sugar really is the devil, it's so good but so bad!! It's addictive, it makes us feel great right?! but wait... it makes us feel great short term, until the dreaded sugar crash hits us HARD... naturally to pick us back up, we go for more sugar... it's a viscious circle.
I have put together a list of alternative sweet treats/snacks that are my go to when I fancy something sweet, but want to stay on track with my nutrition;
Cut up apple with cinnamon sprinkled on top
Frozen slices of banana with peanut butter
Greek yoghurt with protein powder/honey
A handful of mixed nuts
80% Dark chocolate
Rice cakes with peanut butter
Hard boiled egg (I know it's not sweet, but it's hugely satiating!)
NB: Life is for living, and I am a massive advocate in BALANCED, sustainable living, it is important to treat yourself every once in a while but the above list are some of my go to, healthier options!
