Prunes, dried apricots, raisins, figs and other dried or dried fruits are low in calories and have a minimal amount of sugar in their composition. At the same time, all the beneficial properties of fresh fruits are preserved. Do not confuse with candied fruits, which are oversaturated with sugar and artificial colors.
The best source of natural sugar — fructose — is fresh fruit. They are not only tasty, but also very useful. It is best to eat fruits on an empty stomach, in which case they will improve the process of digestion of the main food.
Cranberries and blackcurrants are great ingredients for berry puree or fresh jam. Acid can be blunted with a small amount of honey or fructose. These desserts are perfect for afternoon tea.
Black bread with honey
Just try oven-dried brown bread with natural honey spread on it, and you will never go back to store-bought cakes. Such a dessert is full of nutrients and at the same time completely non-caloric, so you can indulge in it even in the evening.
Nuts and seeds
Nuts are a source of healthy fats needed by the human body. A handful of seeds or nuts is a great snack during the work day to recuperate. Nuts with honey will be an excellent substitute for sweets.
Do not forget about the sense of proportion, because excessive consumption of even the most useful products will not lead to anything good, especially if your main goal is to maintain a figure.
