Peanut butter and strawberries instead of…
Reese’s cups or anything that’s candy with a hint of peanut butter added.
Sometimes we just want that creamy nutty flavor with a hint of sweetness and texture.
Replacing that with some strawberries and peanut butter over your favorite crackers can do the trick.
Naan and fruit toppings instead of…
bagels and cream cheese or moon pies.
There are lots of ways to recreate a bagel with strawberry cream cheese so its healthier for you. You can use some naan bread or even a lowfat bagel option sprinkled with your favorite fresh fruit on top.
You can’t miss with that snack replacement, and you’ll curve your need for carbs and sugar.
Frozen watermelon popsicles instead of…
ice cream sandwiches or sugar filled popsicles.
Watermelon is healthy for you and made up of mostly water. So take advantage of the fact that they’re refreshing and make them into popsicles for those especially hot days.
Granola and peaches instead of…
Fruit loops, lucky charms, really any sugary cereal.
Granola tastes great. Top it with some fresh peach slices and your favorite milk and it tastes better. Get in the habit of making this for breakfast instead of opting in for the first sugary cereal you see.
Your favorite smoothie instead of…
Soda or ice cream.
Smoothies can be filling and satisfying depending on how you make them.
If you want a smoothie to be more filling and have a bit of a nutty taste to it just add almonds or walnuts and blend away. Make sure you don’t add any extra sugar to it.
But if you really have to, try using agave nectar as a sweetener instead of refined white sugar.
Baked sweet potato fries instead of…
Mcdonalds fries or any other fast food fries.
Sweet potato is delicious and can be cooked in more ways than one. One great way to make some sweet potato fries is by simply peeling and and cutting them into fries, adding a drizzle of olive oil and salt, and sticking them in the oven for a few minutes.
Cranberries and walnuts instead of…
airheads and skittles.
Cranberries are naturally sweet too. And you’ll be surprised at how much they can satisfy your sweet tooth without going overboard with the artificial flavors, preservatives and colors.
Hummus and salt free chips instead of…
Doritos and potato chips.
Hummus is a flavorful dip that you can use with your favorite naan. And you can dip your favorite air fried chips in it or lowfat naan pieces for a tasty midday snack.
Matcha and almond milk instead of…
What’s not to love about hot cocoa? Its the perfect drink for those cold gloomy days when you’re wanting something that’ll warm you from the inside out.
But you know whats even tastier and healthier for you? Some warm almond milk with matcha powder that you can have at any time in the day when you want to drink something sweet and warm.
Low fat crackers and cheese instead of…
While everyone loves Cheetos, they aren’t the healthiest to eat, especially as a daily snack. But you can always replace them with your favorite lowfat cheese and crackers as a cheesy yet yummy alternative.
