Do You Have a Remedy to Curb Cravings for Sweets and Junk Food?

 

Q. is there anything out there that can help me with my caving sweets and junk
 
A. You may be interested to learn some science behind food cravings.  Cravings are actually more psychological than biological. Hormones, memories and other neural mechanisms cue cravings which may occur more frequently when we are hungry or dieting.
 
If you’re craving something sweet, reach for fruit instead of processed sweets. Not one color or form— fresh, frozen, canned, dried, and 100% juice—of fruits or vegetables is more nutritious for you than another.  Check out our Fruit & Veggie Recipe Database to find new ways to satisfy your sweet tooth with fruit-inspired desserts and smoothies!
