These snacks can help quell your sugar cravings while providing some nutritional perks as well.

  • Chocolate Milk
    • It’s a powerful mix of protein and sugar for post workout recovery
  • Pickled Beets
    • The ruby vegetable has a higher sugar content then other vegetables, and its naturally occurring nitrates may bolster exercise performance
  • Dried Figs
    • They’re chewy and a good source of fat burning calcium
  • Frozen Grapes
    • To make this sweet treat, spread whole red grapes in a single layer on a baking sheet, freeze until firm and store in an airtight zip top bag. Though frozen, they will still be easy to bite into, with a creamy consistency
  • Dark Chocolate
    • It provides a hefty dose of disease-thwarting antioxidants. Choose brands with at least 70 percent cocoa for more antioxidants and less sugar
