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

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.

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.

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.
Using all-natural and eco-friendly ingredients, these pack in a whole lot of punch. Made with nuts, seeds, gram, whole grain AND chocolate – these fantastic bars are full of protein, iron and fiber. Grab ’em, already!
Hot and Sweet Guava Jam
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!
