Healthier Banana Splits November 20, 2020 15:05 4 Comments
Instead of a snack that is low in nutrients, high in added sugar and full of artificial ingredients, try substituting a healthier alternative. We substituted Chocolate Complete Paleo Protein mixed into Greek Yogurt for ice cream and topped with frozen berries and raw walnuts.
Healthier Banana Splits:
Cut one banana in half and place on plate.
Mix Greek Yogurt and Paleo Protein together.
1 cup of Plain Greek Yogurt (We used Oikos brand which is super thick!)
Top with your favorite ingredients:
We used frozen blueberries, raspberries, cherries, strawberries and blackberries. No added sugar in this frozen fruit mix blend.
Sprinkle raw walnuts and Ceylon Cinnamon over the top!
Our version of a healthier banana split was great for breakfast. We were satiated for hours which means we weren't tempted to snack until the next meal.
Often, the task of losing weight seems like so much work you might think it is impossible. But it’s not! In fact, sometimes some small, almost insignificant changes can add up to big changes in your weight and health. If you are someone who is resistant to change yet you know you need to make improvements in the way you live, small changes might be your best approach to healthy weight loss. Baby steps might take you longer to reach your goal than if you dive in head first and make huge changes to your diet and exercise schedule. But you can still get there by taking baby steps.
In the long run you have to be honest with yourself. If you make drastic changes, will those changes stick over the long term or are you more likely to rebound back to your old ways? If the latter is true for you, then you should try to slowly develop good habits by making small yet productive changes that don’t excessively impact your usual routine. Once those changes have become habit (and this can take some time) you can make more small changes and get more benefits from those changes.
Some small changes that can add up to big improvements in your weight and health include:
• Drink more Water
• Reduce Stress
• Get better Sleep
• Weight-bearing Exercise
• Increase your Activity Level
• Be mindful of your Beverages
• Test and fix your sluggish Metabolism
