Craving Sweets? Try these “Non-Desserts”

Leading a healthy lifestyle doesn't have to mean saying no to sweets!

When it comes to weight loss, making the right nutritional choices is more important than swearing off dessert for the rest of your days. It's true, a big slice of chocolate cake could destroy your dieting efforts in just a few bites, but there are plenty of other options when it comes to satisfying a sweet tooth.

So what is the key to enjoying dessert without ruining your diet? Substitute healthier items in place of high-calorie, high-fat desserts! The next time you host a dinner party, or simply crave a sweet treat, give these healthier alternatives a try:

  • Frozen grapes
  • Sugar-free Jello
  • Mixed fruit salad with Splenda
  • Fruit and sugar substitute mixed into plain or flavored Greek yogurt
  • Homemade frozen fruit popsicles, perfect for summer
  • Smoothies made with Greek yogurt, fresh or frozen fruits, and ice
  • Our Specialty Cereals make a nice little crunchy dessert
  • Chocolate dipped strawberries, made with sugar free chocolate syrup
  • Low-fat pudding

Not convinced that sweet treats are okay to enjoy when you are trying to lose weight? Research proves otherwise. The problem, as one Yale researcher says, is not naturally occurring sugar, it is added sugar, and that "we eat too much of it." When it comes to creating a healthy diet, focus on balancing food groups – which, in fact, includes some sugar. Just stay away from foods that have high doses.
