Fall is approaching.
As the weather becomes colder, the Holidays are near, and family gatherings ensue, desserts become a popular commodity.
Although pumpkin pie, chocolate cake, and cookies are delicious treats, they can be very high in calories.
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans stated to limit added sugars and saturated fats to less than 10% of calories per day.
Calories are a crucial factor when making meals. When the number of calories you consume matches the number of calories you burn, your weight remains stable. A caloric surplus or deficit will dictate weight loss or gain.
Fortunately, some alternatives be just as tasty with lower calories.
Healthy options include:
- Yogurt and Berries
- Frozen Fruit Bars
- Dark Chocolate
- Frozen Grapes
- Baked Apples
- Dole Whip
- Grilled Pineapple
- Fruit and Cheese
