Sweet Healthy (Gluten & Dairy Free) Alternatives

This is quite an easy obvious one but swap milk/white etc chocolate for dark chocolate, which actually has health benefits. There are lots of different types of dark chocolate too so don’t think that you won’t like them all if there’s only one or two that you’ve tried. Dark chocolate contains lots of antioxidants it also contains fiber, iron, magnesium and potassium. Good for lowering cholesterol and lowering the risk of heart disease.

Swap sweets for dried fruit, my favourite is dried mango. If you’re trying to lose weight you shouldn’t eat too much fruit as it is high in sugars however it is healthier than the refined sugars in sweets, it also doesn’t contain as much. Fresh fruit is also a great alternative however dried fruit is easier to carry around if traveling as is has a long date and can’t get bruised.

Dried vegetables chips instead of crisps, you get the same crunch but with less calories. I also think they’re must tastier, probably because you get more variety in the pack. You can even make your own at home by cutting the vegetables very finely and putting them in the oven for about 2 hours (depending on which vegetables you are using). You can also make these in a dehydrator. Popcorn is another alternative for a sweet craving.

Mashed potato or Chips made with sweet potato, you won’t really need any flavouring either because the extra taste from the sweet potato is enough.
