Even the healthiest of eaters still get cravings. There’s no stopping them — sometimes, you just want a salty, savory, or sweet snack to indulge in. Luckily, there are plenty of options to satisfy those cravings without feeling guilty. Let’s take a look at just some of the many possibilities:
Chocolate Zucchini Brownies
These brownies are made out of zucchinis, so you don’t have to worry about all those extra carbs and sugars. You’ll get a serving of vegetables while indulging your chocolate cravings — what could be better than that? Check out this recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie to make chocolate zucchini brownies with just over 100 calories and only a gram of sugar.
Potato Chip Alternatives
We can’t blame you for the occasional potato chip craving. Their salty goodness is just irresistible sometimes! But if you’re looking for a healthier option than your standard potato chip, you’re in luck. Try selecting kettle-cooked or small-batch potato chips, which have been made in such a way to have lower fat content. You can also try alternatives to potatoes, like kale chips or bean and rice chips.
Healthy Granola Bars
A granola bar or protein bar is a great way to feel full fast, but many are loaded down with sugar and additives. Try selecting a healthy granola bar made with organic ingredients and no added sugars, like fructose or dextrose. Then, you’ll have a protein-packed, portable snack that you don’t have to feel guilty about.
Avocado Toast With Bacon
Avocado toast is all the rage right now, and it’s quite good for you. And let’s be honest: who doesn’t get a craving for bacon now and again? Top your avocado toast with a small strip of bacon for a guilt-free snack — or an entire breakfast — that tastes great. It’s packed with heart-healthy fats and plenty of vitamins and minerals. Plus, you’ll be giving yourself a boost thanks to all the protein.
The next time you have cravings, indulge them — but do it with one of these healthy snacks and see how good you feel.
