Healthy Sweet Snacks – Low Carb Healthy Desserts for Weight Loss

What should I eat when I crave sugar?

There’s nothing wrong with indulging yourself with sweet treats when you are craving for sugar. However, instead of ruining your health (and teeth) by eating tons of candies and chocolates, why not opt for healthier yet also sweet alternatives? Yes, there’s nothing wrong with indulging yourself with sweets as long as you are doing it the healthy way. With that said, here are some healthy snacks and treats you can eat when you are craving for some sugar:

  • Fruits. Fruits naturally contain sugar but the difference here with your candies and chocolates is that fruits also contain tons of healthy nutrients and plant compounds. Plus, they’re inexpensive! A recommended fruit choices that are slightly higher in sugar are mangoes or grapes. 
  • Yogurt. Yogurt is a high-protein snack that could help you control your appetite and cravings. Plus, it comes in various flavors for you to choose from! 
  • Berries. Berries are excellent to satisfy your sugar cravings. Yes, they taste sweet but their high fiber content means they are actually quite low in sugar! 
  • Dark chocolate. Chocolate is one of the most commonly reported foods people eat when they crave sweets. However, it is not always the healthiest. But dark chocolate is a different case since it contains healthy plant compounds and is healthier than your milk chocolates! 
  • Chia seeds. Chia seeds are high in soluble fiber, which could help you feel fuller for longer and curb your sugar cravings.
  • Sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes will satisfy your sweet tooth and will help you keep yourself full! 
  • Fruit smoothies. Smoothies that are made from fruits are a greater and healthier alternative for sodas and iced teas! 
  • Dates. Dates are very sweet so they can fix your craving for sugar while providing you other beneficial nutrients!
