Craving Busters

Whatever your palate is craving at the moment, be prepared by having these healthy snacks on hand. If you have them ready to go in your pantry or refrigerator, you’ll be less likely to reach for a candy bar or chips. 

If you’re craving creamy – grab a cup of greek yogurt. It’s ultra creamy like icecream, but packs some serious calcium with fewer calories. Add in fresh fruit or drizzle with honey.

If you’re craving sweets – reach for some frozen seedless grapes. These treats have plenty of fiber and vitamins. Freeze them on a small baking pan, then store in the freezer in an airtight freezer bag.

If you’re craving chocolate -  mix up a chocolate protein shake. It’ll provide your body with much needed energy and satisfy your sweet-tooth in one tasty slurp.

If you’re craving crunchy – munch on a combination of lightly-salted nuts and seeds. Try mixing almonds with sunflower seeds or cashews with pumpkin seeds.

If you’re craving salty – savor some Zucchini Oven Chips. They taste fried, but are really oven-baked. Get recipe here.
