7 Healthy Snacks that Taste Like Dessert
Healthy desserts do exist!
Who says you can only eat dessert at the end of the day? Studies have shown that spreading out your caloric intake throughout the day, rather than all at once, is a great way to stay energized and maintain a healthy metabolism. Snacking on healthy, low-calorie foods in between meals helps contribute to weight loss and overall health. Unfortunately, sugary snacks tend to be heavy in unhealthy fats and high in calories. But for those of us with a sweet tooth, cutting out sweet snacks altogether eventually leads to diet failure. Not everyone can live on raw veggies forever. The solution?
