Jaggery Bombs to Fruit Jam: 5 Smart Choices to Soothe Those Sugar Cravings

Jaggery Bombs to Fruit Jam: 5 Smart Choices to Soothe Those Sugar Cravings

Don't give up on sugar completely. Reach out for healthier options instead!

Sugar is seductive.

The pull is too hard to resist. But resist, we must. For the sake of a healthier body.

While sugar can be had once in a while; once you go overboard, it’s extremely tough to then get off the bandwagon.

But, the good news is that there are tons of healthy alternatives available that you can now use to satiate sugar cravings.

Pay attention, dear sugar-loader, this is for you.

Got sugar cravings? Here are five healthy ways to give your body the sugar it wants.

Jagger Bombs

With no added sugars, these balls of goodness are made with natural ingredients such as jaggery, ghee and dry fruits. The brand – WeDesi – works with farmers in MP to source the best quality of jaggery and ghee, the kind that would do your body only good.

Healthy Whole Grain Cookies

The mention of cookies bring up only sinful images of sugary-decadence, we know. While this variety is incredibly delicious too, it comes with a promise of certain health-benefits for the body. If you must binge on something sweet – these bite-sized cookies are perfect because they’re made with stuff like oats, ragi, chocolate, honey, banana and raisins.

Fig Juice

If you couldn’t be bothered about eating sweets per se, but need your sweet drink once in a while, you’d be stoked to discover how healthy and tasty fig juices can really be. They quickly grow on you; with just a wee bit sugar, and a whole lot of goodness. Figs pack in some health benefits too – such as increasing haemoglobin, spiking sperm count and helping with irregular menstruation.

Protein Bar

This is for those who are used to reaching out for a jar of Nutella when the sugar-cravings strike. You basically consume a spoonful of condensed fruit when you indulge yourself with this jam. Swirl this sweet and spicy pink guava goodness over your fruit bowl, and you will take snacking to another level!
