Good Eats

Chocolate Hummus

This may sound like a strange option, but chocolate hummus is delicious and pleases that sweet-tooth craving. You can find chocolate hummus from Trader Joe’s or your local grocery store. It is high in omega-3 fats, calcium, and B vitamins.  If you’re not a fan of chocolate hummus, having a few bites of dark chocolate is a great way to satisfy that craving and low in calories. Just make sure not to overdo it!

Rice Cake with Peanut Butter and Honey

Another great option is eating a rice cake with peanut butter and honey. If you’re not a chocolate fan but still have a sweet tooth, this is a great alternative option. It is packed with fiber, protein, good fats and that sweetness you want to indulge in.

Berries Dipped in Dark Chocolate

Berries have lower sugar content, so choosing berries is the first step when eating healthier. But, to make it even better? Dip it in dark chocolate, or just eat them together. Dark chocolate contains polyphenols and iron. This dessert is great because it contains little to no added sugar!

Baked Apples with Cinnamon and Nuts

Eating this is like eating apple pie without the crust! It’s delicious and can be made extremely healthy based on your preference.  

Strawberries and Whipped Cream

A classic strawberry shortcake minus all of the added sugar. Slice up some strawberries and scoop them into whip cream to seize that craving. To make it healthier, try using coconut whip cream.
