Sweet craving driving you crazy this Valentine’s Day? People often show, give and equate love with food. Dr. Jan Chozen Bays in her book, “Mindful Eating, A Guide to Rediscovering a Joyful and Healthy Relationship with Food” says this about the pair: “When you talk with people at any length about comfort foods, you will always uncover a story that is warm with feelings of connection, love and companionship.”

There’s that box of chocolates, the bag of candy hearts, a big glass of wine and your favorite dessert from that awesome restaurant. Before you treat yourself to something that packs in the unhealthy ingredients, try a few of our guilt-free alternatives to curb the sweet craving.
