Satisfy Your Cravings…the Healthy Way

So you want to get healthier, lose a few extra pounds, maybe even tone up, or pack on some muscle — but you can’t seem to cut out all of those food temptations that sabotage your efforts. junk food

In many cases, what I find works best is not focusing on what we CAN’T have, but what we CAN have. It’s not about depriving ourselves, but about finding healthy alternatives. We all have weaknesses, but instead of giving into those weaknesses and feeling guilty about them later, find a healthier substitution that will leave you feeling better and your body healthier.

Think about it, most of the time we are not craving something solely for the taste, it’s more than that — it’s the sugar-fix associated with that food, or the texture or the crunch. Sometimes it’s the salty taste, or the cold feeling of that food in our mouths.

Below, I’ve highlighted some common cravings and healthy alternatives that I believe are fairly comparable for those cravings.

    I have a hankering for a moist brownie like cake with a fudge like frosting or filling. Of course it should be made from the finest chocolate, and not too sweet. Next would be a carrott cake. My husband prefers strawberry short cake. How’s that for a craving?
