For those with a sweet tooth, instead of a candy bar or ice cream, fresh or frozen fruits would be a better option as they offer more nutrients instead of artificial sweeteners that come with sweets. Most of them are also packed with vitamins that keep your body healthy.
Salty food can be highly addictive especially since our brains and bodies are designed to enjoy it because salt is necessary for survival. But eating too much salt can cause some serious health problems like high blood pressure and heart disease.
So, the next time you catch yourself dreaming of that salted egg chips, try replacing that craving with a light and easy snack like chickpeas which can also be made into hummus that goes well with carrots, celery sticks and tortilla chips.
