In this world full of delicious desserts, maintaining a healthy diet is tough. Especially when you have a sweet tooth! I for one, struggle with this. I have been trying to maintain a healthy diet, and it is a real struggle as my cravings for sweet after every meal interrupts. After every healthy meal, I find myself digging my fridge for a piece of chocolate or maybe a cake! I knew I had to stop, but how? I tried to resist myself but it didn’t feel right! I felt incomplete without having something sweet, which is why I decided to settle for something healthy & sweet.
If you feel the same as I do, here is a list of sweets you can indulge in without the feeling of guilt:
Filled with dry fruits and the goodness of ginger, jaggery is the perfect choice to satisfy your sweet tooth. The classic sweet not only helps you tantalize your taste buds but is also very healthy. Jaggery is known to boost body immunity & warm up your body which is why it is mostly enjoyed in winters. It has other benefits like detoxifying the body, improving your digestion & helping with health issues like PCOS.
The most natural & delicious way to please your taste buds is fruits! Fruits are sweet, natural and good for your health. Fruits are not only cholesterol free but have lots of vitamins & nutrients in them. Fruits help us add fiber to our diet which helps with weight loss. So, why not have fruits, they’re sweet & help you remain hearty.
Craving chocolates? Well, nothing can suffice that! When one is specifically craving for chocolate, no matter what you eat, the emptiness won’t go away. I am sure chocolate lovers can relate to it. Have dark chocolate and save yourself from the feeling of regret! You will be astonished to know that dark chocolate is a powerful source of antioxidants, helps in improving heart health & helps in improving cognition. Do you need more reasons to have chocolate?
Frozen Yoghurt with Fruits
A perfect dessert for a hot summer day! Frozen yogurt and fruits are not health food, but it is definitely healthier than ice cream. To make sure your frozen yogurt is not only delicious but healthy too, make sure you choose the toppings thoughtfully. Choose fruits instead of loads of chocolate chips & syrups.
Baked Apple with Cinnamon
“An Apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
Fruits are one of the best options if you want to eat healthy and sweet. One can’t be having fruit every time, you need variety. Apple pie seems healthy but with the amount of sugar it has, it isn’t as healthy we thought it is.
Take an apple, bake it for about 40 minutes or until they are tender when poked with a fork. After that cut into half, coat it with greek yogurt & dash of cinnamon powder. Here, your delicious baked apple is ready!
This way you’ll consume a delightful fruit & the goodness of cinnamon make it better.
It can be really tough to commit to eating healthy when you have a sweet tooth. It seems like everything sweet is full of sugar and cream, but if we look around for better options we can make healthy choices and eat sweets too!
