If you're a fan of fish, anchovies on whole grain crackers is a great way to tame a SALT craving. In addition to heart-healthy fats, these little fish are packed with calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin K.
Call me crazy... but when roasted Brussels sprouts first come out of the oven, the brown and crispy outer layer can really satisfy a craving for SALTY, CRUNCHY chips for me!! In addition to the texture, the outer layer has usually also ended up with more of the olive oil, salt and pepper used as seasoning. So, have your "chips" when the sprouts are fresh out of the oven... then eat the inner part later on as your veggies!
If you looooooove chips and salsa, then go ahead and have some!! As long as you can limit yourself to a reasonable portion... which I know is an issue for some people (including me). Due to the salt tortilla chips carry and the impact of corn on blood sugar, they can be really difficult to stop eating. If you have issues with corn as well, try these paleo tortilla chips made with almond flour.
Flavored yogurt is usually loaded with sugar. If you use fresh fruit, you can capture the natural sweetness without needing to add sugar (they aren't using the ripest and sweetest, best-quality fruit when making the fruit mix-ins for packaged yogurt). Make your own flavored yogurt by stirring in some fruit puree to satisfy a CREAMY craving for a dessert like tiramisu or even just one of those flavored yogurt packs.
