On Wednesday, I posted about how to stay full. How to fill up a stomach that feels like a bottomless pit. But let’s be honest… sometimes it’s not our stomach that’s hungry. Right? So let’s talk about when your mind is hungry…
(Not a scientific term. But you totally know what I’m talking about.)
If your brain desperately wants a bite of chocolate, have a bite of dark chocolate. Don’t try to satisfy your chocolate craving with 14 sugar free hard candies, 2 rice cakes, and some mints. You’ll still be “hungry” for what your brain is craving. That doesn’t mean eating a giant bowl of ice cream or a King Size candy bar. It means savoring a bite or two of some sinfully rich dark chocolate, and then calling it a night.
I’m not the only one that has these cravings… right?
When those types of cravings hit, try a bite of something that will truly satisfy that craving, without making you feel like you’ve given up. Here are a few easy recipes that can soothe that sweet tooth…
You only need a few ingredients for this little treat, and that granola does add a tiny bit of protein and fiber! It also takes the chocolate to an even more delicious place. Seriously, try it.
If you’ve got a few strawberries sitting in the fridge, whip up a quick batch of these, and you’ll get the enjoyment of a bite of cheesecake, without the temptation of an entire cake sitting in the fridge.
These mini banana splits come with the built-in benefit of portion control. Plus, they’re adorable, and adorable desserts are scientifically proven to be more delicious. (That’s not based on any research, but you know it’s true.)
Mmm mini desserts. Perfect for brain cravings.
