If you're anything like me, you often find yourself on the hunt for sweets after dinner, or around lunch time... or maybe all the time? The truth is there could be a ton of reasons why you are craving carbs (which I won't go into for the sake of time), but you don't necessarily need to have a full on "cheat day" to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours. Here are five things you may want to keep in your fridge/freezer/pantry to avoid that late night FroYo run.
1. Perfect Bar
Serving Size 71g = 330 Calories 18g fat/26g carbs/17g protein (Peanut Butter)
Comes in many flavors, all of which are packed with over 20 organic superfoods. Gluten, GMO, and preservative free.
2. Lenny and Larry's The Complete Cookie
Serving Size 2oz = 180 Calories/6g Fat/24g Carbs/8g Protein (Chocolate Chip)
Vegan. Egg, dairy, soy, and GMO free. No artificial sweeteners.
3. PB Fit Peanut Butter Powder
Serving Size 2 Tbsp = 50 Calories/1.5g Fat/ 4g Carbs/6g Protein
Organic, gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO. 90% less fat than regular peanut butter. Works great for protein shakes or adding peanut butter flavor to greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream (my personal favorite)!
4. RX Bars
Serving Size 52g = 210 Calories/10g Fat/22 Carbs/12 Protein (Maple Sea Salt)
4 ingredients. No added sugar, no dairy, no soy, no gluten, no GMOs. Simple, whole food bar.
5. Halo Top Ice Cream
Serving Size 1 pint = 280 Calories/8g Fat/56g Carbs/24g Protein (Vanilla Bean)
Protein and ice cream..? Dreams do come true. Throw some PB Fit in a bowl, mash it up, and you've got yourself a solid 40 grams of protein AND YOUR EATING ICE CREAM. Doesn't get much sweeter than that.
