low sugar snacks the Koia team loves:

Snow Monkey – Ice cream has always been a go-to treat in the Koia Team’s diet, but we could do with out the dairy and excess sugars. We love that we can indulge in a pint of Snow Monkey without any guilt and the best part is all of the flavors taste amazing!

Lesser Evil Snacks – We often find ourselves craving a crunch! We always grab for Lesser Evil Snacks and recently we are obsessed with their Paleo Puffs. Their delicious “No Cheese, Cheesiness” Paleo Puffs make it hard to believe they are made with NO dairy and have 0g of sugar!

IQ Bar – Let’s face it, we’re all to busy to make satisfying healthy meals. When we need an on-the-go quick pick me up we always eat an IQ Bar. IQ Bar’s are packed with flavor and leave out all the unnecessary ingredients. The best part is each bar only has 1g of sugar to avoid a crash that will mess up your routine!

Smart Sweets – Giving up candy is basically impossible, so we are very thankful for Smart Sweets! Its such a relief to indulge in a plant-based candy you can feel good about.

bonus tips

1. Increase healthy fat sources in place of your usual “sweet” snack – for example, pairing your vegetables above with avocado or apple with coconut butter! This will help keep your blood sugar stable. Other healthy fat sources include coconut, nuts, seeds.
2. Don’t skip meals – cravings often come from feeling unsatisfied during mealtimes.
3. Reach for fruit first when you need something sweet – you’ll get extra vitamins and minerals that way!
4. Remember to drink enough water – common symptoms during a sugar reset like headaches and low energy are due to lack of hydration.

5 foods that help with sugar cravings

Chia Seeds – Need a high-fiber treat? Soak 3 tbsp of chia seeds in 1 cup of Koia for an easy chia pudding: it’s a great source of fiber and omega-3 fatty acid that’s great for heart health.
Fermented Vegetables – Think sauerkraut, pickled beets, and kimchi. They’re also high in probiotics which may help support immunity and increase the good bacteria in our stomach for better digestion.
Chickpeas – Beans and legumes like chickpeas are high in fiber and are an excellent source of plant-based protein that help keep you satisfied.
Avocados – Not only are avocados a great source of healthy, plant-based fats, but it’s also naturally high in fiber. Healthy fats will help keep you satiated during this reset.
Cruciferous Vegetables – Cabbage, brussels sprouts, broccoli – eat them raw or cooked! They’re high in fiber, low in sugar, and help naturally detox our body.
