Try a Healthy Sweet Alternative

These Healthy Sweet Alternatives Make a Great Breakfast Too!

Want something after dinner? A healthy sweet alternative perhaps?  Or do you need to prepare a breakfast the night before?

Often people get stuck on how to enjoy some variance in meal plans, without the guilt. Therefore, too often, we resort back to easy, on the go snacks, like crisps, pretzels, chocolate’s and more. Today we have some solutions which can be prepared in advance and are all whole foods, which don’t carry the health associated risks of indulging in refined sugars and table salt.

These options below were prepared and presented at Viva fitness recently by our ‘food mentor’ and masterchef Eloise Jury who also does some catering on the side. You can reach her here
