I eat Gnu bars for a sweet treat and they usually do the trick. They're all natural, less calorie-dense than a lot of other bars, and they have 12 g of fiber..I find them at Whole Foods, GNC, and Vitamin Shoppe.

I've never liked sugar that much. I could buy a small sack and it would stay in the cupboard for ages!
I do love dark chocolate though.
I am trying to eat more fresh fruit.
I am trying stevia for the first time, can't wait to try baking something with it.

Dried fruit, even the kind without sugar added is actually high in naturally occurring suagr. It does make your blood glucose levels rise much more than say a fresh apple.
But, if you are trying to avoid white, refined sugar (or worse!), then I would so much rather have the dried fruit. AT least it comes with nutrients and fibre.
Also, fibre helps to slow down digestion and keep blood glucose levels more even.

Just a bit of dark chocolate does the trick!
Or a little natural PB on a slice of banana, yum!
It is true; the less sugar you have the less you want it! I have been actively avoiding sugar for the last three weeks. The first week was hard. The next week wasn't hard and the third week I barely thought about it.

I was doing great without sugar until Halloween hit. Now I am craving sweets daily:(
Some of my faves are: berries, greek yogurt and granola
fruit salad with pumpkin seeds
banana and almond butter in a brown rice wrap

Just wondering about dried fruit, I love it but rarely indulge because I worry about the sugar content. Any info here?

Any of you get sugar cravings? I actually don't really get them anymore. The less sugar you eat the less you want to eat it. That's the beauty of clean eating.
But sometimes it's nice to have a little treat after dinner.
When I do want something a little sweet for dessert, I maybe have some fruit & yogurt. Sometimes I like to have a slice of toast with a packet of stevia and cinnamon sprinkled on it.
I also make my own icecream. Completely sugar free (except for the fruit in it) and add a little stevia.
I also make my own chocolates. 99% cacao melted in the microwave; add stevia, nuts, coconut and let set. A little piece is all you need or want. It's really rich.

What do you guys do for a sweet treat?
