Have a sweet tooth? A sugary craving sets in and you start to worry your self-control is waning… Trust me, I know this feel allllll too well. That is why I learned to start snacking smart and choosing healthier options when it comes to my sweet tooth. So, what do I do when it comes to smart, healthy snacking?
Step 1: Drink a glass of water. I always have my water by my side–always. Sometimes, I am just bored, so sipping water keeps my hands and mouth occupied without mindlessly consuming calories when I am not even hungry.
Step 2: Really hungry? Tummy rumbling? Okay, go get a snack, but be smart! What do I mean? Craving sweet? Choose a piece of fruit. My favorite is a small granny smith apple. When you have something sugary, even naturally full of sugars like fruit, pair it with a healthy fat. It allow the sugar to be absorbed more slowly and makes you feel fuller. Hence, the almond butter above.
Step 3: Feel satisfied and know that you fed your body with a nourishing snack.
And with the body all refreshed an energized? How about a killer workout? P90X3 anybody? ;)
