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.
