Healthy Foods to Eat When You Crave Sweets

Don't give in the next time you crave sweets, instead try snacking one of these healthy foods and keep yourself on track. Healthy Foods to Eat When You Crave Sweets ~ Tipsaholic.com #healthysnacks #craving

 

 

crave sweets

 

Trying to lose weight while battling a sweet tooth? These simple snacks can help keep you on track when the cravings hit. With combinations of nutrients like protein and fiber with small amounts of more natural sugars, you’ll be able to feed your need for sweet without going overboard.

 

Smoothies

Fruit smoothies are a great snack and are often sweet enough to ward off the desire for a cookie or two. Use bananas for sweetness, berries for an antioxidant boost, and Greek yogurt for protein. You can even add in mild greens like spinach for extra health benefits without sacrificing flavor. If you need a recipe to get you started, try one of these simple superfood smoothies!

 

Dark chocolate

Chocolate seems to be one of the more irresistible sweets when it comes to cutting back. Dark chocolate is a good alternative for the typical sugar-laden chocolate you may be accustomed to. Remember that the higher the cocoa content, the better the chocolate is for you.

 

Yogurt or a yogurt parfait

Plain Greek yogurt or plain yogurt are the best types because they are the lowest in sugar, but mixing in berries or adding a bit of honey can sweeten things up if needed. Make your own parfait by layering the yogurt in a cup with berries and a bit of granola.

 

Plain or chocolate dipped fruits

Fruits like berries and bananas are great foods to grab when a craving rears its ugly head. Plain is obviously best, but the occasional addition of chocolate can make a fruit more like a dessert. Stick with dark chocolate to keep things as healthy as possible.

 

Cottage cheese and fruit

Protein and fiber are the star nutrients in this snack. These and the little bit of sweetness provided by the fruit makes it a well-rounded addition to your afternoon.

 

Trail mix

A trail mix combination of nuts and seeds is a great way to ward off hunger of any kind. Some dried fruit or even a bit of chocolate tossed in may be just enough of a treat to keep your sweet tooth at bay.

 

A cracker or graham cracker with peanut butter

If you want to avoid sugar altogether, a whole-grain cracker is the way to go, but a graham cracker is a great place to start when you crave sweets. Peanut butter contains protein and healthy fats that will knock out any hunger you might feel. Eat a snack like this when the first signs of hunger begin to show and you may be able to stop a craving before it even begins.

 

Flavored popcorn

Plain old microwave or stovetop popcorn can be dressed up with seasonings to make a snack for any afternoon slump. Try one of these recipes for popcorn toppings from Spark People, all for less than 150 calories, too!

8 Easy, Healthy Snacks and Their Benefits, tipsaholic

 

healthy snack title
We all know it’s better to snack on almonds than peanuts, or pick up a banana instead of potato chips.  But why?  If you only have a few minutes to grab healthy snacks, which ones should you grab and why are some better than others?  If you want to encourage healthy eating habits in your family, here are some simple, no-stress ideas.  Grab an easy snack and arm yourself with all their health benefits!

 

1. Trail mix – All trail mix is NOT created equal.  Make it yourself, and you know for sure what health benefits you’re getting!  Use a variety of nuts and seeds for vitamins A, C, E, and K, iron, zinc, magnesium and antioxidants.  Add dried fruit for more vitamins and antioxidants, as well as calcium and fiber (but watch portion sizes as they can be loaded with sugar).  Healthy grains can add fiber and keep you fuller longer.  Toss it all with different spices and seasonings and your trail mix will go from boring to gourmet!  For a complete low-down on mixing and matching healthy options in custom trail mix concoctions, click the above link!

 

2. Cracker and Tuna Sandwich – Make sure to use a multigrain cracker – such as a low sodium triscuit or crisp bread.   Healthy grains keep you full longer without eating large portions and are full of fiber and minerals.  Two big bonuses of tuna?  It’s brain food and it’s protein!  It also reduces your risk of stroke and some cancers.  It can lower cholesterol and triglycerides and it’s good for your heart.

 

3. Apple Sandwiches with Almond Butter and Granola – Portable and easy to make, these “sandwiches” are full of healthy protein, thanks to the nuts.  Almond butter is a healthier version of peanut butter, with healthy fats, high fiber content, vitamin E and magnesium and calcium.  Granola contains a plethora of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, iron, fiber and calcium.  Health benefits include energy boosts, weight loss, lower cholesterol, cognitive ability and anemia prevention.

 

4. Avocado Toast – This yummy snack is packed with flavor and a little kick!  The avocado is a power food – it’s chock full of vitamins (E, K, B, C) and folates.  They’ve got a ton of potassium, and are loaded with healthy fat and fiber.  They can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.  Olive oil can prevent heart disease, inflammatory diseases and different types of cancers.  It has even been known to counter the effects of aging.  Multigrain bread is packed with fiber and complex carbs, which is great for energy.  It also contains magnesium and essential fatty acids.  All of this can help fight infections, illness and add in tissue reparation, along with helping with metabolism.

 

5. Kale Chips – If you’re craving something super crunchy and bad for you – AKA potato chips – try these instead!  Kale boasts tons of vitamins and minerals – A, C, K, plus iron, copper and potassium.  It also has a bunch of protein packed away and is low calorie.  It’s been shown to help prevent diabetes, cancer and heart disease.  It also aids in digestion, and if that’s not enough, it makes your bones, hair and skin uber healthy!

 

6. Cucumber Roll-ups with Greek Yogurt – These delicious looking roll-ups are the perfect afternoon snack!  Cucumbers have vitamins to spare – K, B, and C – along with potassium and copper.  They’re full of antioxidants and also have unique properties that protect against chronic illness.  They can reduce your risk of cancer, support heart and digestive health and can help manage stress.  They fight inflammation, freshen your breath and protect your brain!  Plus, they are amazing to help you stay hydrated.  Greek yogurt is full of vitamin B, potassium, calcium and protein.  Plus there’s probiotics to aid in digestive health.  Turkey is rich in protein, iron, zinc and potassium.  It’s a lean meat and low in fat.  It can lower cholesterol levels, boost metabolism and strengthen your immune system.

 

7. Skinny Green Popcorn – You can turn soya beans into a delicious, popcorn-like crunchy snack with some seasonings and baking!  Soya beans, AKA edamame, has some key nutritional elements – namely fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals and phytosterols.  Edamame aids in digestion and lowers cholesterol levels.  It can help prevent certain cancers and diabetes.  It also boosts your energy.

 

8. Fresh Fruit Pops – If you’ve got a sweet tooth and can’t ditch the sugary snacks midday, try these frozen treats!  They have only two ingredients – your choice of fresh fruits and coconut water!  Fresh fruit – as we know – is full of vitamins (tons!  A, E, D, C, K, B!) and minerals (potassium, magnesium, zinc!) and the coconut water has lots of nutrients too, like potassium, magnesium, phosphorous and calcium.  Put these together?  It’s like a power house.  These pops can aid in weight loss.  They can help with healthy digestion, lower blood pressure, boost your hydration and give you healthy skin.

How to Eat Less Sugar: 8 Tips to Reduce Sugar in Your Diet

Too much sugar can cause health problems, energy crashes, weight gain, and cavities. Check out these 8 tips on how to reduce sugar in your diet! How to Eat Less Sugar: 8 Tips to Reduce Sugar in Your Diet via tipsaholic.com #health #sugar #snacks #diet #fitness


How to Eat Less Sugar 8 Tips to Reduce Sugar in Your Diet
Too much sugar in your diet can cause health problems, energy crashes, weight gain, faster aging, and cavities. But if you’re addicted to sugar or just love it too much, you might feel like it’s so hard to reduce sugar in your diet. Here are some great tips on how to eat less sugar and get more energy, lose weight, and many other health benefits!

 

1. Read the labels.

Before you start eliminating things from your diet, look at the food in your pantry and refrigerator and take the time to read the labels. Sometimes you’ll find sugar in unexpected places. Yogurt, cereal, bread, and canned baked beans are just a few examples of packaged food that might pack in a lot of sugar in a small serving for a boost of flavor.

Then when you do your grocery shopping, look at the labels on the food there before putting them in your cart. It might take you a while to finish your shopping trip the first time you read labels, but with time, you’ll know which products to buy and which to leave behind.

Especially watch out for food products that proclaim that they’re low fat. They’re often packed with more sugar to make them more palatable.

 

2. Drink less sugar.

You probably already know that a can of soda gives you up to 40 grams of sugar, but also watch out for other sugary drinks such as lemonade, orange juice, energy drinks, flavored water, ice tea, alcohol, and even certain packaged soy and almond milk. Again, check the labels of your favorite drinks and see if you can make some healthy replacements.

You don’t have to quit all of your sugary drinks all at once. Just drinking one less soda per week (or day, if you drink more than one per day) can help you lose weight in the long run. Eliminate sugar from your diet slowly to make permanent changes.

 

3. Edit your pantry and refrigerator.

When you’re hungry at random times during the day, do you reach for a sugary treat? If it’s there, it’s harder to resist. Try removing the sources of sugar in your diet from your home, such as cookies, small pieces of candy, and ice cream. Even if you have kids, it will benefit everyone in your home to have less sugar easily available. If you’re jonesing for a sweet treat, take everyone out for a cone of ice cream! Make it a special treat instead of an everyday (and boring) one.

 

4. Replace sugary treats with fruit.

When you eat less sugar, you’ll start to realize just how sweet fruit can be. Fruit do contain sugar, but they also include lots of other good stuff, like antioxidants and fiber, that help boost your health. Instead of a bowl of ice cream after dinner, try a bowl of frozen cherries or sliced fresh mango. Yum.

 

5. Drink water when you feel like eating a little sugar.

Sometimes a craving for sugar is just thirst. Try drinking a glass of water every time you want to go out to the store to grab a cookie (you don’t have any in your home anymore, right?). Often, you’ll forget your craving and be satisfied with that glass (or two) of cold water.

 

6. Try snacks that are satisfying and healthy.

Instead of stocking your pantry with sweets, try some snacks that satisfy your sugar cravings. You might want to experiment with a few snack ideas to see which ones make you happy and crave sugar less. Apple slices with almond butter, fresh berries in greek yogurt, and roasted almonds with dried cranberries are just a few examples of nutritional snacks that don’t contain too much sugar.

 

7. Don’t get too hungry.

Skipping meals will lead to hunger, which can lead to a full-blown sugar binge. Keep your body energized and happy by eating every meal and that includes breakfast. If three meals aren’t enough for you, try adding healthy snacks between meals or a six small meal plan if you have access to food all day.

 

8. Give it time.

Reducing (or quitting) sugar in your diet takes time and some thought. Don’t expect to break free of your sugar addiction quickly. It’ll take you a few weeks, or months, to permanently change your diet to include less sugar and more good stuff. This investment in your health will be worth it and it will definitely show up in both your scale and your health! Make small changes every week and it will all add up by the end of the year, promise.

8 Healthy Baking Substitutions

8 Healthy Baking Substitutions - Tipsaholic

 

 

baking substitutions

 

Let’s face it, when you’re trying to be healthy baked goods are a serious pitfall.  Who can deny a delicious, gooey brownie every now and then?!  If you love to bake, or more important, if you love to eat baked treats, you don’t have to suffer through denied cravings.  With a few easy tweaks here and there, your baking will be much healthier and better for you and your family.  Best of all, these healthy baking substitutions are delicious and will leave your sweet tooth satisfied!

 

1. Ingredient: Flour

Substitution: Black Beans

Why: It may seem odd, but black beans are a great swap for regular white flour.  They make your baked goods gluten-free and add some extra protein to your diet.

How to do it: Rinse and drain your black beans as per normal, then use a food processor or blender to make a black bean puree.  Use a one to one ratio – one cup of black bean puree for one cup of flour.  This is best in brownies.

 

2. Ingredient: Flour

Substitution: Wheat Flour

Why: This may seem like a no-brainer, but wheat flour contains grains which add fiber and helps to prevent heart disease and diabetes.

How to do it: For every cup of white flour, substitute 7/8 cup of whole wheat flour.  It’s a great substitute in nearly any baked good you can think of.

 

3. Ingredient: Flour

Substitution: Nut Flours (almond flour, etc.)

Why: It’s gluten-free, adds protein and minerals, and adds a slight nutty flavor.

How to do it: Almond flour is a lot heavier than regular flour.  A blend of almond flour and wheat flour is a good way to go, and it’s good to add it in 1/4 cup increments.  If you use only almond flour, increase your rising agent (like baking soda or powder) by 1/2 tsp for every cup of almond flour.  This works well in nearly everything, especially cookies, sweet breads and cakes.

 

4. Ingredient: Vegetable Oil or Butter

Substitution: Unsweetened Applesauce

Why: It’s just a touch sweet without any of the fat.  There’s a bunch of added vitamins and minerals, too.

How to do it: When making a recipe, swap out 1/2 the fats (oil and butter).  If you can’t tell the difference, you can increase the amount of fats you swap the next time.  This works really well in muffins and sweet breads, and can also be good in boxed cake mixes.

 

5. Ingredient: Butter

Substitute: Avocado

Why: Avocados are chock full of vitamins and minerals – with more potassium than bananas!  The subtle flavor blends in well without much added difference and they’ve got lots of healthy fats – unlike butter.  Plus, the consistency of both is relatively similar which makes them a good substitute.

How to do it: Peel and cut your avocado, then use a food processor or blender to puree it.  Use about 1 cup avocado puree for each cup of butter, though it may take a bit of trial and error to perfect.

 

6. Ingredient: Heavy Cream

Substitute: Evaporated Milk

Why: Evaporated milk has the same consistency as cream, but contains less than half the fat!  That’s reason enough to swap, but also consider the benefits of being able to keep it on-hand in your pantry instead of having to run to the store every time you need it.

How to do it: This is a simple one to one swap – so one cup evaporated milk for every one cup of cream.  This works well in creamed sauces, custards, etc, but doesn’t have the same consistency when whipped.  Not that it can’t be done, but it’s definitely not the same whipped!

 

7. Ingredient: Cookies, Oreos, Nilla Wafers, etc.

Substitution: Graham Crackers

Why: Graham crackers have the same consistency and texture as cookies, which makes them the perfect substitute.  Use reduced fat graham crackers and you’ll cut the fat in half!

How to do it: Use this substitute for pie, tart and bar crusts.  You can also use it instead of cookies crushed up as a garnish.

 

8. Ingredient: Milk chocolate, Chocolate candies (like M&M’s)

Substitutions: Cacao Nibs or Dark chocolate flakes

Why: Cacao nibs contain a healthy dose of antioxidants and are less processed than milk chocolate morsels.  They have less sugar and less calories.  They can be a bit difficult to find in some stores, though, so opting instead for dark chocolate morsels or flakes has the same effect (just not quite as un-processed).

How to do it: Just swap exact amounts.  They can be used in anything you use chocolate candies or milk chocolate in – melted for ganache or frosting, added to cookies, cakes and muffins, sprinkled on top of different baked goods, spread into bars, the possibilities are endless.

10 Things You Need to Know About Chia Seeds

What’s so great about chia seeds? Are they really as healthy as some people say they are? Read on to learn about chia seeds and how they’re good for you. 10 Things You Need to Know About Chia Seeds via @tipsaholic.com #chiaseeds #healthy #health #seeds #protien

 

10 Things You Need to Know About Chia Seeds

You might have heard about chia seeds and how they’re a superfood that you should include in your diet, but what’s so great about them? Are they really as healthy as some people say they are? And how do you eat them, exactly? Read on to learn about chia seeds and how they’re good for you.

 

1. Chia seeds are a great source of protein.

Protein is an important part of a healthy diet. And if you’re trying to lose weight, protein is even more vital because it helps reduce appetite and cravings. Chia seeds are very high in protein for a plant source, so it is a great option for people who don’t eat much meat or other animal products.

 

2. Chia seeds can replace eggs in some recipes.

When dry, chia seeds look like poppy seed, but soak them in liquid for at least 15 minutes and they’ll turn into something that resembles gelatin. This unique physical feature makes chia seed a great egg replacer for vegan recipes and a thickening agent for smoothies, puddings, and jams instead of sugar.

 

3. Chia seeds are very nutritious for only a few calories.

Chia seeds only have 138 calories per oz, which is low when you consider how dense they are with nutrients. In one serving, chia seeds have 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, and 9 grams of fat. You’ll also get zinc, vitamin B3, potassium, vitamin B1, and vitamin B2 when you consume one serving of chia seeds.

These seeds are also filled with antioxidants, which are great for your body but also helps them last so long in your pantry before going rancid. When stored correctly, they can last up to two years!

 

4. Chia seeds are good for bone health.

One serving of chia seeds gives you 18 percent of the daily requirement of calcium, 30 percent of magnesium, and 27 percent of phosphorus. These nutrients, along with protein, are excellent for bone health, making chia seeds a great option for people who don’t eat dairy. Actually, those that do eat dairy might still benefit from eating chia seeds, since these seeds contain more calcium per gram than most dairy products.

 

5. Chia seeds have been shown to lower blood pressure.

A study was done on patients with type 2 diabetics to evaluate whether chia seeds could improve the patients’ health. At the end of the study, it was shown that the patients’ blood pressure went down significantly. If you’re concerned about your blood pressure, it might be a good idea to try including chia seeds in your diet.

 

6. There is not enough evidence that chia seeds can lower triglycerides and cholesterol levels.

Even though chia seeds have been shown in research to lower blood pressure, that doesn’t mean that they can also improve your health in other areas. Some people claim that chia seeds can lower triglycerides and cholesterol levels, but there haven’t been any studies that show that to be true.

However, there are generally not much scientific studies on natural remedies, so a lack of proof in research doesn’t mean that chia seeds won’t improve your health. As long as it’s safe for you to consume, you can try adding it to your diet and see how it helps you.

 

7. You can eat chia seeds whole or ground.

Chia seeds have a lot in common with flaxseed, which became very popular a few years ago. However, to receive the health benefits of flaxseed, it must be ground. Chia seeds, on the other hand, do not have to be ground. It’s much easier to just throw in whole seeds of chia seeds into your food without having to ground them like you would have to with flaxseed.

 

8. Not all chia seeds are created equal.

Just because the label says it’s chia seed doesn’t mean you should buy it. Red chia seeds are immature seeds, while very small black seeds are actually weed seeds. Stick with the white seeds or black seeds that aren’t so small. Compare brands and reviews to choose the best chia seed you can buy.

 

9. Two daily doses of 20 grams are recommended.

So now you know that chia seeds are good for you, how much of them should you eat daily? It’s recommended to eat 20 grams of chia seed twice daily. That amounts to almost two tablespoons per dose. You could add a tablespoon to a salad and another tablespoon to a smoothie, for example, to meet your daily dose.

 

10. If you have food allergies or you’re taking blood pressure medication or blood thinners, talk to your doctor before you try chia seeds.

As always, check with your doctor before trying a new addition to your diet. It’s even more important to talk with your doctor if you’re allergic to mustard seed or sesame seeds. Also, if you’re taking blood pressure medication or blood thinners and want to try to reduce your blood pressure by consuming chia seeds, call your doctor first.

 

Are you ready to try chia seeds? You could start with this smoothie and see how you like it. If you love pudding and creamy breakfast cereals, you’ll especially enjoy experimenting with chia seeds.

Do you include chia seeds in your daily diet? How do you add it to your food?

10 Healthy Snacks That Will Satisfy Your Cravings

When you find yourself hungry between meals, do you grab something convenient and maybe not so healthy? No more — here are 10 healthy snacks that are tasty, easy to prepare, and will satisfy you until your next meal! Some of the healthy snacks listed are paleo-approved, so there’s something for everyone here.

1.Candied Almonds

Nuts are very filling and will keep you full for longer periods of time than empty carbs. Almonds are one of the best nuts to eat thanks to their nutritional content. My favorite way to eat almonds is to roast them with a little honey and cinnamon. This recipe also includes ginger, brown sugar, and salt. You could adjust the seasonings to find the perfect combination of flavors.

2. Parsnip Chips (Paleo)

Who doesn’t like to eat chips for a snack? But they aren’t as good for our waistlines or hearts. Try making parsnip chips — they’ll give you the starch you’re craving for, but they’re much healthier. The recipe says to fry them, but you can always bake them after tossing them in olive oil. You’ll need a mandoline slicer for the best results, but a sharp knife and a steady hand should be fine; your chips might be less crunchy, though.

3. Nori Wraps (Paleo)

Nori wraps aren’t just for sushi! Use them to make wraps — add vegetables, meat, and anything else you like in your wraps. This recipe uses smoked salmon, avocado, fresh basil, and cucumber, which sounds really delicious! You could swap out these ingredients for practically anything, from shrimp to mango. Just make sure you include some protein and fats to make your healthy snack filling!

4. Ricotta and Tomato Toast

Ricotta isn’t only for lasagna and it’s actually a good protein to eat, but just be sure to grab the part-skim version. Make this easy ricotta mix, spread it on a toast, and enjoy it with a slice of fresh tomato. This could be a healthy snack or a pretty appetizer!

5. Peanut Butter, Strawberry, and Banana Quesadilla

This healthy snack recipe reminds me of a crepe stuffed with nutella and banana, but healthier, of course! The roasted strawberries in this recipe are a delicious addition. You could easily use almond butter or sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter.

6. Hummus and Avocado Toasts with Roasted Tomatoes

Hummus and avocado is very good combo, if you haven’t tried it already. Add a roasted tomato on top and a toast on bottom and you’ve got a great, healthy snack! If you’re in a hurry, a slice of fresh tomato or jarred roasted red pepper would do the trick.

7. Avocado Heirloom Tomato Toast with Balsamic Drizzle

Yep, this is another healthy snack that includes avocado. Avocado is an excellent, healthy fat and is so satisfying. This snack is similar to the previous recipe, but it doesn’t include hummus and adds balsamic reduction. Short on time? Just drizzle balsamic vinegar right on the toast, it’ll still taste good and tangy!

8. Sweet Potato Chips (Paleo)

Again, you’ll need a mandoline slicer to make these chips crispy, but I always cut them with a knife and end up with soft but, oh so good sweet potato chips. Try them with guacamole.

9. Roasted Chickpeas

If you haven’t tried them, roasted chickpeas are a tasty snack that will remind you of popcorn. This recipe roasts canned chickpeas in the oven, but you could easily cook them in a skillet at medium heat until they’re nicely browned and ready to nosh on.

10. Paleo Banana Bread

Banana bread isn’t normally considered as a healthy snack, but this one is! I love this banana bread recipe because it’s so easy to make. Just throw everything in a food processor, blend, and then pour in a muffin tin or a bread loaf. I recommend turning this into mini-muffins, because it’s much faster to cook and a mini-muffin (or two) is the perfect size for a quick, healthy snack.

Add some of the above healthy snacks to your grocery shopping list and you’ll never find yourself hungry without anything good (and quick) to snack on. What are your favorite healthy snacks? I’m always looking for great healthy snacks for me and my family, so share ‘em!

Coconut oil has many health benefits, so this hot drink is both healthy and delicious. Make it with a immersion blender, a counter-top blender, or a milk frother to better blend the coconut oil into the drink. You could drink this in the morning, but I love a good cup of coffee after dinner.
