Whenever I have a craving for something that's less than healthy, I will try to find a lighter version of that food. Let's say I'm craving pizza, then I'll have a thin and crispy crust veggie pizza. If that doesn't settle the craving within a couple of days, I'll go ahead and have the full fat version.
It's okay to indulge in your cravings just a little bit. A little indulgence will hopefully keep you from a full out binge. You don't have to deprive yourself all the time.
These are just a few things I'm enjoying at the moment. I try not to get stuck in a rut with what I eat. If I get bored it can be detrimental to my success.
Some of My Favorites at the Moment:
Lately, when I've wanted something sweet, I've been throwing together a simple fruit salad. It's best with fresh fruit, but you can use canned. Just make sure to get it with no sugar added.
Simple Fruit Salad
- 1 can of no sugar added canned peaches
- 1 can of no sugar added mandarin oranges
- about 1 cup of red grapes
- 1/2 of a fresh pineapple, cubed
Toss all the ingredients together and refrigerate until ready to serve. Before serving, I will add a cut of banana.
If you are craving ice cream, I recommend Dreyer's Slow Churned. It is rich and smooth and only has about 100 calories per serving depending on the variety you pick.
What's your favorite indulgence? Do you have a healthier version to share? I would love to hear your comments.
Till next time, God bless! :)
