Fix: Find Healthy Ways To Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
If you notice that sweet foods don’t taste as sweet, it might be necessary to recalibrate your taste buds. Reducing sugar in your diet doesn’t need to be a painful experience. Try substituting sugary snacks with healthier alternatives. Dark chocolate has less sugar than milk or white chocolate but doesn’t lack flavor. Frozen berries, grapes, mangos, and pomegranates are sweet enough to keep your cravings at bay without overpowering your taste buds.
The Medjool date is one of the sweetest fruits, so sweet it is often used as a sugar substitute in recipes. It’s a deliciously sweet treat that’s loaded with fiber and potassium. Pair fresh fruit with yogurt, cheese, nuts, or seeds for a nutrient-packed sweet treat. Roasted, baked, or air-fried carrots or sweet potatoes make unconventional sweet snacks that are nutrient-dense and filling.
