Crush Christmas Food Cravings With Healthier Alternatives

The holiday season is just around the corner. And we all know what that means:

More cravings for the super delicious Christmas treats!

But how can you satisfy cravings over this lovely holiday season? 

The good news is that there is always a healthier alternative to your sweet or salty food cravings.

7 Tips On How To Avoid Cravings During The Holiday Season

When you are craving something sweet like candy, pastries, or chocolate, try replacing it with

Dark Chocolate: Dark chocolate (+70%) contains antioxidants and minerals and is often lower in sugar.

Applesauce Or Fresh Fruits: Eating a little applesauce when you have a sweet craving will help satisfy your needs. Applesauce is sweet due to the fruit sugar from the apples. Applesauce will provide you with great nutrients like fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants. The same thing goes for fresh fruits. Plus, fruits are low in calories and will keep you fuller longer.

Homemade Smoothie Ice Cream: Blend your favorite fruits with cottage cheese till it looks like a smoothie. Then freeze the mixture for 2-3 hours for a healthy protein smoothie ice cream that will satisfy any sweet tooth craving.

 

When you are craving something salty like potato chips, try replacing it with:

Popcorn: Air-popped popcorn is much lower in calories. Avoid adding butter or too much salt.

Hummus: Hummus is the perfect dip. Try dipping carrot sticks or sliced cucumbers in hummus.

Edamame And Nuts: Many nuts, and edamame beans, are packed with proteins and healthy fats. Apart from this, some are also rich in minerals like selenium and magnesium. They are a yummy healthier alternative to salty snacks.

Roasted Chickpeas: Chickpeas come packed with nutrients like proteins, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Try roasting them in a little extra virgin olive oil and season with garlic powder and paprika – Delicious!
