Five Of The Best Fitness Snacks To Curb A Sweet-Tooth

One of the hardest things I have found, since starting on my health and fitness journey, has to be giving up my one true love,
Me and chocolate have always had an intense relationship. I keep coming back for more, and chocolate, the perfect partner that it is, keeps welcoming me back with wrapper wide open.
Feeling down Kate? Chocolate is here to cheer you up!  
 Feeling happy? Chocolate is here to make the fun times last!
Fancy some nuts or even fruit? Put some chocolate on it and make it ten times tastier. 
It was happy days, until it started outstaying its welcome on my hips, butt and tum. 
Giving it up has been hard. Hard being a understatement actually. You can often find me gazing loveling down the sweet aisle of any supermarket, for much longer than I would actually care to admit. 
So Ive been on the hunt for a decent equivalent, for myself and for all over chocolate lovers out there. 
Because splitting up with Dairy Milk is something no girl should have to do alone. 

Carb Killa

Grenade Carb Killa

Most protein chocolate bars have that horrible powdery aftertaste, and taste like gone off chocolate bars of old. Grenade have managed to really pull it out the bag with these tasty morsels though. Without a doubt, these are by far the best protein chocolate bar I have ever tasted.
Everyone that I have recommended one to, have also been pleasantly surprised by just how yummy these really are. 
My faves are the White chocolate cookie, and Cookies and Cream, but with ten flavors to choose from, there is definitely something for everyone.

Dr Zaks Protein Cookies 

The Dr Zaks cookies are much more of a cake like snack to me, then a cookie.
They are super soft, with yummy gooey chunks inside that help to curb the cake cravings when they hit with full force (every sunday afternoon for me).
The salted caramel ones in particular are quite the delight.
I did try to save half for my partner to try, but once you start with these you just cant stop.
So you can imagine how that turned out… 

Womans Best Protein Power Cookies

Keeping on the cookie theme, these Womans Best Cookies taste better than some normal full-fat full- sugar cookies I’ve had pre-diet days (and believe me, I’ve had a lot!).
 These are much harder then the Dr Zaks version, so they make for the perfect dunking cookie. 
I ordered the Chocolate flavor with my last Womans Best order, and I had the full intention of taking some pretty cookies and milk photographs for the gram.
 But no sooner had I taken them out the box, then they accidently slipped and fell in my mouth…. 
Yum… I mean


Metcalfe’s Skinny Popcorn

I know, I know, these definitely arent anything like chocolate. 
But my god are they tasty.
 If your craving for the chocolate is strong (we’ve all been there my friend) and you have no replacment around, then these are the perfect back up.
Stick with me here!
The sweet and salty mix may be one of the most addicting foods I have ever tried. Your be far too busy shoveling them in your mouth (because let’s face it, who actually eats popcorn one at a time!) to remember what you wanted in the first place.

Word of warning – don’t buy the share packet, buy the multipack, because if you’re anything like me, the only thing you will be sharing this pack with, is your other hand so you can get the popcorn into your mouth faster.

(smothered on rice cakes!)
Rice cakes don’t usually float my boat, but when you pair a plain rice cake with one of Womans Bests chocolate protein creams, it takes the rice cake game up to a whole new level of fun. 
The white chocolate is definitely my fave out of the two (plain chocolate being the other flavor) but they both hit the spot for helping fill that Nutella shaped hole in my heart. 
I’ve heard for totally reliable sources that it is not entirely inappropriate to eat the spread directly out of the jar with a spoon.

    Love this post. Since developing a lactose intolerance I have relied heavily on sweets for my sugar fix and low and behold I gained over a stone, I blame the share size bags which declare they are 8 portions but once they are open they just seem to walk into my mouth.
    I will look into these, although I tend to struggle with my nut allergy!!

    Great Post.
