Lose weight and still have dessert? It can happen! In fact, there are a lot of options for those who want to indulge in something sweet and keep up with their health goals. The trick is to look for treats that make you feel full.
One thing to look for are recipes for energy bites – something that might contain items like cocoa, peanut butter, oats, nuts, and dried fruits. Heart healthy and it tastes great!
You might think cookies and ice cream is a no-no, but there are some that are high fiber, and you’ll feel full faster. And if you’re feeling adventurous, look into ice cream made with avocado to gain nutrients like vitamins, potassium, magnesium and more!
If you’re a chocoholic, dark chocolate is rich in fiber and less added sugars.
Fruit, whether it’s fresh or frozen, with a low calorie whipped cream or Greek yogurt will combine carbs, protein, and a little bit of good fat, and most important – flavor!
There’s a lot of good choices out there – so you can still have fun even when you’re being healthy!
