Sometimes, you just want a few bites of something sweet but you don’t want to wreck your diet plan. That’s when I make Chocolate Covered Banana Bites. I can eat one and I’m good to go. I just have to make sure I don’t eat them all!
About three months ago, I made a promise to myself to exercise every single day. Sometimes, it’s a long, intense workout and occasionally it’s a short one. But I get up and move every single day!
It’s all about baby steps with me, so once I got my workouts down pat, I began to restructure my eating plan. That’ includes eating healthier snacks.
When you’re working out, you don’t want to undo all your hard work by eating unhealthy foods on a regular basis. I always save my once-a-week special splurge for Sunday dessert. Even then, I watch my portion size.
My husband and I both try to eat foods that are better for us. That means planning ahead and including small mid-morning or afternoon snacks. When it comes to snacking and craving something sweet, homemade granola bars are another favorite. Again, I have to make sure to watch portion sizes.
Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana Bites are a snack that’s easy to make. Make sure to store them in the freezer!
