Trick Your Taste Buds

It was 9th of January when I bought American Girl magazine entitled Food and You, 2008 from Robinson’s Pioneer ground floor in a Pick-A-Book booth of the said mall. It captures my attention and taste in regards to book when I started reading the front and back cover, it happened that I never think twice of getting the book.
I love the part which tackles about when the urge to snack strikes, reach for healthy foods first. Of course, what to do according to them is ti “Trick your Taste Buds”, instead of having your whims in your hands, why not try substitutes like:

If you’re craving crunchy chips, try. . .
Pretzels, or a handful of roasted almonds
(almonds are good for losing weight instead of potato chips which can make your tummies fat)

If you’re craving sweets or candy, try. . .
Dried fruit, such as raisins or apricots
(yup! Raisins are good but why don’t you try dried mangoes)

if you’re craving French fries, try. . .
popcorn sprinkled with Parmesan cheese
(baked potatoes can also be another example)

if you’re craving ice cream, try. . .

low-fat frozen yogurt
(strawberries and blueberries are the best flavors)

if you’re craving a milk shake, try. . .

a smoothie made with yogurt, ice, and fresh fruit
(still strawberry and mango flavors are the best choices)
