I get asked a lot about healthy snacking and healthy living - people seem to want a more healthy chocolate chip cookie or simple ways to feel better. And I get it... life is all about being healthy but also finding balance, and the little parts DO COUNT!

It will offset some of the more traditional cookies and cakes offered up at parties, so when you are craving a sweet treat, you still get all that satisfaction, just without all the sugar.The secret ingredient is allulose, which is becoming more and more popular, no wonder as it is a natural sugar that actually tastes like real sugar - but without all the carbs!

- Start the day with a glass of warm lemon water. It helps hydrate you and keep your digestive system running smoothly, plus gives you an added dose of immune-boosting vitamin C!
- Make sure you start the day with a healthy breakfast. It sets a good tone for the day, and ensures that if you really do indulge later, you got in a healthy meal earlier in the day. Try my healthy breakfast suggestions!
- Before you hit up a party, fill up with a good-for-you-snack or appetizer. That way you won't be reaching for every little thing that comes your way, helping to keep your calorie count in check. I like an apple with a piece of cheese or a handful of almonds to help keep my cravings at bay.
