We all love cookies, ice cream, pizza, and other junk food that simply isn’t good for us, or that makes us all gain weight. When we get a craving for our favorite candy bar it isn’t easy for anyone to put that craving out of their mind. It can become a distraction or even a fixation, stopping you from doing your regular daily activities until giving in to that dangerously delicious candy bar bliss. What if we could satisfy these cravings by simply making a few quick adjustments? These fast, easy, and delightfully healthy snack alternatives are a perfect way to curb those pesky cravings.
Celery with peanut butter for a protein fix
When we crave junk food, it typically means that we are missing protein in our diet. One of the best ways to up our protein intake is with a quick and easy snack involving peanut butter. ‘Ants on A Log’ (raisins optional) is a great way to incorporate peanut butter into our daily snacking routine. Cut up a few sticks of celery and spread half a tablespoon of peanut butter on each one. If you’re allergic to peanuts, almond butter is a great replacement. Tada! Delicious protein at your fingertips.
