We all know what happens… it’s movie night, or your at the check out line at the grocery store. You’ve been doing so well with eating clean! But the m&m’s look so good and the spinach is not cutting it. We are here to help!!! Here are some of our favorite healthy swaps that are guaranteed to satisfy those cravings!
1. Instead of SWEDISH FISH, try SMARTSWEETS SWEET FISH.
There are only 3g of sugar in the entire bag. Plus there are 28g of fiber. Smartsweets has so many great options for low sugar candy.
2. Instead of REESE’S, try LILY’S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS.
0g of added sugar in Lily’s Peanut Butter Cups!!! They have a few different options for these chocolatey alternatives.
3. Instead of DOVE CHOCOLATE CASHEWS or PEANUT M&M’S try JUSTIN’S CASHEW BUTTER COVERED CASHEWS.
Less sugar, better ingredients, same taste!!!!
4. Instead of KITKAT’S, try LITTLE SECRETS CRISPY WAFERS.
No artificial colors & flavors or high fructose corn syrup in the Little Secrets! These are lower in sugar and made with clean ingredients.
5. Instead of BEN & JERRY’S, try HALO TOP!
About 1,000 calories per pint in Ben & Jerry’s, and only 280-380 calories PER PINT of Halo Top!! Not to mention less sugar and fat. (The peaches and cream is our favorite!)
