Making Healthy Life Choices At The Candy Store


As children, some of us might remember the trip to the candy store. While the old-fashioned candy stores that sold Snaps, Bun Bars, Horlickís Malted Milk tablets and Teaberry gum may not be around anymore, we can purchase the sweets we crave online.

As adults, most of us want to make healthy life choices but we donít want to give up our childhood candy-land dreams. A lot of us are nostalgic about candy. It represents a happier time in our lives when things were easy and life was carefree. But as adults we are watching our waistlines and trying to prevent Type II diabetes. The solution is to purchase sugarless, natural candies and chocolate.

Organic food trends

More people today are interested in organic choices for healthy living. It would be absurd to eat green algae, wheat grass and organic vegetables all day, only to snack on candy loaded with sugar and preservatives at night.

As part of a healthy lifestyle, select natural candy that contains no sugar. You donít have to be diabetic to enjoy the benefits of sugarless foods.

Chocolate is not the enemy

Some people think they need to give up chocolate as part of a healthy lifestyle. But the opposite is true. Chocolate contains magnesium as well as antioxidants. The fat in chocolate is made from cocoa butter, which contains a heart-healthy form of monounsaturated fat called oleic acid.

Furthermore, chocolate contains healthy flavonoids that protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals.

Finally, as part of your healthy lifestyle, donít just replace your regular candy with sugarless candy and chocolate. Itís also important to eliminate carbonated beverages from your diet. Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables throughout the day. Select organic and natural whole foods whenever possible.

And when itís time for a sweet treat, savor every bite of sugar-free candy and luscious chocolate just like you did when you were a child.
