CLEO (Malaysia) - - BODY & SOUL -

If you’re in des­per­ate need of a sweet snack but don’t want the sugar crash that comes after­wards, try sugar-free lol­lies in­stead. Or just limit your dosage to one or two small treats. The 3pm choco­late hit is a must for some. Make yours health­ier by try­ing skim milk with co­coa, as this will give you much-needed cal­cium. Still can’t re­sist? Go for a bite­sized rich and in­tense choco­late bar in­stead of pack­ets of choco­late wafer sticks. This is a great healthy en­ergy food with low GI. But don’t go OTT. Aim for about a cup per meal. Also be smart in your choice of sauces and opt for tomato-based recipes with lots of veg­eta­bles in­stead of creamier va­ri­eties.
