It’s the weekend. You know what that means. It’s treat weekend for many. What are the usual treats people indulge in over the weekend?
Pizza, wings, chips, candy, cake, ice cream, etc.
What’s wrong with eating these treats? Nothing is wrong with eating treats, but they have the potential to steal your results, make you unhealthier, and can lead to unhealthy habits, especially if you don’t have control over your intake of these treats.
I’d be lying if I told you I don’t eat chips or pizza once in a while. But I don’t make them a part of my usual diet.
What are some treats that won’t give you negative results? These treats do the trick for me.
Instead of pizza from a pizza shop, I make pizza on low carb/low sugar wraps. I use more sauce and less cheese. If I want peperoni, I use turkey peperoni.
Instead of candy, I will eat dehydrated banana chips or even a fresh piece of fruit.
Instead of ice cream, try eating frozen fruits.
Instead of cookies, try oatmeal with natural peanut butter, cocoa powder, and a little bit of honey. It tastes just like a warm cookie. I love it.
Instead of a peanut butter cup, try using a piece of dark chocolate (at least 80% cocoa) dipped in natural peanut butter. Add a little bit of honey if you want a sweeter taste.
We don’t have to deny every little treat that comes our way, but if you don’t have the control to eat in moderation, I suggest substitutes. Sometimes substitutes can become your new favorites.
