California Strawberry Inspired Snacks to Satisfy Sweet Cravings

Using natural sweetness such as a fruit is a nutritious way to satisfy a sweet craving when it hits. When I find myself craving something sweet, though sometimes I choose the dessert (after all, treat yourself!), I like to make simple snacks with fruits as the flavoring to cut down on my added sugar intake. You might have guessed… One of my favourite fruits to use are California strawberries! Versatile and lightly sweet, California strawberries top the fruit cake in my opinion. One serving (8 whole strawberries) is low in sugar, but rich in fibre, antioxidants and other nutrients.

The Keto Diaries: What this Dietitian Thinks About the Keto Diet after Trying it

I can’t tell you the number of times in the past year I’ve been asked what my thoughts are on the ketogenic diet.

However, there was always a small part of me wondering what it would be like to follow, and if I would feel or perform any different if I entered a state of “ketosis”. Further, having to experience it myself would make me more comfortable in guiding a client or patient in adhering to the diet should they need or want to for certain health circumstances.
