A Healthy Snacks Checklist categorized by craving type


There are several different types of food your body can crave and we all know when we crave something...well here are some alternatives!

If you're CRAVING something SWEET:

If you're craving Ice Cream try Greek Yogurt instead or a Smoothie!

If you're craving Pudding try Chia Pudding instead!

If you're craving Cake try Frozen Grapes, Frozen Bananas, Crackers with Almond Butter, or Fruit salad!  

If you're craving Cookies try a Lara Bar or Granola instead!  

If you're craving Chocolate try a piece of pure Chocolate like Gnosis or try baking with some Cacao Nibs!

Before satisfying that Sweet craving w/one of the alternatives listed above make sure that you drink a glass of water.  More times then not its dehydration.

If you're CRAVING something SALTY:

If you're craving French Fries try Sea salt seasoned Sunflower seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Pistachios, Almonds, etc.  

If you're craving Pizza try some Olives, Mozzarella Cheese, or Fresh Tomatoes with Apple Cider Vinegar and some Chopped Cucumber on some Toasted Whole Grain/Gluten Free Bread.

If you're craving Potato Chips or Pretzels try Sweet Potato Chips or Kale Chips!

Get checked by a doctor if you're constantly craving Salty items as this could be an Adrenal or Thyroid Disease.
