You are what you eat, so don’t be fast, cheap, easy or fake!
Instead of turning to traditional ice cream, cookies, cakes and pies the next time you have a sweet tooth, give one of these healthy alternatives a try. They are low in sugar and carbohydrates as promoted in The Power of 5.
Healthy Oatmeal Cookies
A healthy diet, low in carbohydrates has gained popularity in recent years and for good reason. It is believed to help reduce the risk of cancer, coronary heart disease and neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia and Parkinson’s disease. In addition, lower blood pressure, and even prevent or reverse type II diabetes.

Banana Ice Cream
Bananas are a healthy way to kick a sweet tooth. They are rich in potassium, vitamins C and B-6, fiber, and more. Enjoy them as a tasty and lactose-free treat!
