Did you know that when you’re craving chocolate, you’re actually craving carrot sticks?! And when you’re craving crisps, what your body actually wants is a handful of spinach. And when you’re craving sweets, you actually want a handful of soil !!!???⠀

(Sorry.)⠀

All sarcasm aside, there are a few things to note re;‘healthy swaps’;⠀

1. We know some foods are more beneficial for our health than others.⠀

2. We also know we like to eat some foods which are less so because they’re tasty af.⠀

3. Denying yourself of foods certain foods is not only unnecessary, but also creates this ‘forbidden fruit’ mentality. You want it more. Resulting in you ‘caving’ into your craving and eating approx 2 x more of said food than you would have if you’d have just eaten it when you initially wanted it.⠀


Of course eating higher energy foods in excess which don’t provide us with essential vitamins and minerals isn’t going to makes feel v good in terms of energy and overall #wellness. But they can ABSOLUTELY be included in your diet – no guilt, no earthy substitute needed.⠀
