Sweet craving driving you crazy? 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.”

Comfort foods can mean different things to different people. Often, comfort foods are sweet and sugary. 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.
