The thing is you can eat foods that will satisfy your sweet tooth without damaging your waistline or blood sugar. Here are five simple swaps to make when you are dying for something sweet:
A couple squares of quality, dark chocolate. The complex flavors of a good dark chocolate really does calm that "I NEED SUGAR" noise that can start screaming about 3:30pm when you're at your desk. Opt for a chocolate that is at least 60% cocoa.

Apple with peanut butter or almond butter. This is really does quiet that sweet tooth. Add a few raisins if you need something even sweeter.
A few breath mints. I like Lifesavers Mints. These take a while to finish and can help you get through that screaming craving.
Dried apricots with walnuts. Keep the serving size in check because these can become a calorie bomb if you eat too many. Think five and five: five apricots and five walnut halves. This is approximately 165 calories.
