After seizure cravings

I Have serious sugar cravings after a seizure. Does anybody know of good treats to have that aren't processed? Extra points for vegan options. I usually munch on peanut butter/chocolate fat bombs, but I would love other choices.

Fat bombs are so good. My favorite are the peanut butter-choclate. I cheat and use nutella (I know to much sugar but whatever) and peanut butter. In separate pots melt them to stirable with coconut oil in them then pour them into icecube trays, one ontop on the other so they swirl around in there. sinfully good with the protein, sugar, and mct oil.

Make sure that you are getting enough water and electrodes post-seizure. (sometimes sugar cravings are actually a sign of dehydration). Low zinc or low magnesium levels can also contribute to sugar cravings.

Relatively healthy snacks to consider: Dark chocolate, and fruit dipped in dark chocolate. Cocoa. Yogurt and berries. Chunks of pineapple Homemade granola or trail mix. Basically try to have some protein like nuts or dairy with your sugar.
