From time to time it strikes, sometimes with warning signs, but often out of nowhere. It’s a craving for junk food, and it can be powerful. These cravings are sometimes triggered by stress, and when that is the case, people often crave fat and sugar. However, there are ways to tame the cravings without blowing a healthy eating plan altogether.
There are so many different foods readily available these days that it can be hard to keep track of the worst offenders, the nutritional all-stars, and the break-even snacks and treats. Read on before the next craving hits!
Perogies are easier than ever to make at home. Frozen varieties are readily available at grocery stores and just need to be pan fried in a bit of oil or butter until brown. Topped with a dab of sour cream, they are wonderfully tasty and full of contrasting textures.
The good news is that perogies have modest fat and calorie levels and a decent protein boost. Plus, because they are utterly satisfying, you don’t need many to feel full—think 5 maximum. You can make this treat even healthier by serving some carrot sticks alongside the perogies and calling it a reasonably healthy meal that ticks all of the savory cravings boxes.
