3 Healthy Options When You Have A Sweet Tooth
With Halloween being celebrated in a few weeks, candy options are likely to be bountiful. Regardless of the time of year, use these tips for choosing healthier sweets for you and your family when you have a sweet tooth craving.
- Pop your own popcorn with organic coconut oil and cinnamon – it can provide a creative and filling burst of flavor.
- Enjoy small squares or mini bars of dark chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa content.
- Apples are in season right now, so enjoy one! Cut up with a smear of unsweetened almond butter is tasty and filling. Also, a better alternative to candy is organic dried fruits (preferably without added sweeteners) and organic fruit leathers – they are healthier ways to satisfy a sweet tooth.
