Part of healthy eating is understanding what your body really wants when you’re craving something you probably shouldn’t eat. For example, a sugar craving usually means your body really needs protein. It sounds kind of strange, but if you’re dying for some sugar, eat a piece of cheese instead.
In regards to ice cream, your body is craving the fat from the cream, salt, it’s in there I promise, and sugar, obviously. So, find a different way to satisfy those cravings. I have found that an orange and cottage cheese satisfies all of the cravings: fat and salt in the cottage cheese, and sugar in the orange. You can use any orange-like fruit as well. I really like this with clementines. Plus, they taste pretty good together.
