We all are guilty of harbouring an insatiable sweet tooth, and particularly when this time of the year arrives, it can be extremely hard to avoid those monster candy cravings that make us want to load our bodies with sugar.
Naturally, candy consumption never sits well with our weight loss goals, and in fact, they end up eliminating all our weight loss gains by raising our calorie consumption with just a few bars of candy. It should come as no surprise that candy is the unhealthiest choice for your body and the worst food to sabotage your weight loss diet for it packs up a ridiculously high amount of sugar.
So, forget about munching on candies this Halloween, and instead, satiate your sweet with healthy and natural desserts made with fresh fruits, honey and other natural sweeteners that provide multiple nutritional benefits. We’ve picked out 6 incredibly healthy desserts that you need to add to your weight loss immediately.
Here, take a look:
1. Dried Fruit
Forget about those processed jellies, gummy bears and candies, who needs those empty calories when you can satiate your sweet tooth by munching on a handful of dried fruits. They are not only deliciously savoury and indulgent, but they also pack up much lesser calories and refined sugar as compared to those artificially flavoured coloured alphabets and bears.
Dried fruits are loaded with dietary fiber, essential minerals and vitamin C, however, be sure to pick out mindfully moderate servings because dried fruits tend to pack up much more calories as compared to fruits and vegetables. For instance, a cup of grapes will provide you 60 calories, while 2 tablespoons of raisins pack up an 80 calories.
Here’s a terrific idea for a savoury and satiating snack loaded with nutrients: mix some dried blueberries and cranberries with mixed nuts to reduce your sugar intake, and promote greater satiation by consuming protein and fiber.
