Marshmallows, Gummy bars, Skittles and Chocolate, Yum! Can we all agree that they just taste great? But all of these have a down fall, where’s the health factor? It seems like whenever there’s a snack that taste delicious, it’s not healthy! There is hope yet, don’t fret, here’s 7 healthy snacks that taste just as great as unhealthy ones, if not better!
1. Greek Yogurt
Sometimes simplicity is the best, and Greek yogurt is as simply delicious as you can get! It’s creamy, thick and just wonderfully unique. Completely original, your Greek yogurt can be absolutely different than anyone else’s; and that’s the best part. You can add just about anything to it raging from fruits, nuts or even honey. It satisfies your sweet tooth while still keeping a totally healthy diet.
2. Dark Chocolate
Chocolate is by far the most loved sweet snack by pretty much anyone. It’s smooth, rich, and very comforting! But it’s also one of the unhealthiest treats there are. On the other hand, dark chocolate is the best of both worlds. Still luxurious and delightful dark chocolate is also healthy. Although don’t be fooled, dark chocolate isn’t for everyone. Anything over 85% tastes is quite bitter; although sometimes, that’s just the kick you need!
The perfect snack for any event! Nuts have always been a popular party snack but who’s to say you can’t enjoy the exquisite taste off party grounds? Munching on a small bowl of nuts can go a long way, the bold, rich taste can spike up any day. Also, as an added bonus, nuts are great for concentration. They fit at any time or place and are great for sharing with someone else.
My absolute personal favorite! Pineapples are naturally sweet, juicy, and delicious, both warm and cold. They’re perfect addition to any food. Blended in a Smoothie or cut into sweet little squares, you can’t go wrong with pineapples! Also as an interesting fact pineapples take about two or more years to grow, on a bush!
Although part of the nut family pistachios deserve a whole different space. The crunchy nuts are tasty and so much fun! Cracking the nuts gives your hands something to fiddle with while holding a sweet conversation. The nuts themselves give an adventure in your mouth. Salty, buttery taste gives pistachios great exquisite taste. They’re just wonderful!
6. Dried Fruit
Do you love gummy sweets? Did you know that gummy treats are one of the unhealthiest sweets there are? That’s what makes dried fruits so great. They give the same Gummy sweet taste with fewer calories. Mixing with nuts or Greek yogurt gives them the last little jump of taste, for the perfect richness. Wonderfully delicious for a great quick breakfast snack.
Of course we can’t forget fruits. The most basic of sweets, fruits are easy to get, prepare and eat. Would it be grapes, bananas or strawberries all fruits are healthy, juicy, and just all around tasty. A simple plate of fruits can truly give you a rich tropical feeling like no other!
So the next time your sweet tooth starts craving satisfy it with these delightful treats, it’ll get you feeling great and radiant. After all you are what you eat, and I think being a strawberry sounds more appealing than being a gummy bear.
