Simple Ways To Make Eliminating Sugar A Piece of Cake
Breaking up with sugar doesn’t have to be tortuous & devastating. It can be like one of those breakups that’s kind of mutual, that feels necessary and totally happy you did it later. It all depends on how you approach it. You can make it hard for yourself, or you can make it easy. State of mind is key people! You can do it. And you can have a positive outlook while doing it.
Here are a few of the best ways to reduce sugar cravings and make eliminating sugar a piece of sugar-free cake!
● Licorice tea after meals - Naturally sweet, helps balance blood sugar, and it’s great for digestion.
● Strength in substitutions - Swap bread with slices of roasted sweet potato, pudding with chia and coconut milk, bananas with high fiber berries etc.
● Eat plenty of protein and fat - If your body’s been running off sugar for awhile you need to give it a new fuel source to draw from. High-quality protein and saturated fats like avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, ghee & MCT oil are great for stabilizing blood sugar levels and providing a valuable energy source.
● Embrace fiber - Eat plenty of fiber to stabilize your blood sugar levels. And I don't mean grain-based fiber. Greens, raw vegetables, berries, hemp seeds, flax seeds etc. are all great sources of healthy fiber.
● Make your water exciting - If you’re used to sugary drinks, try making your water more fun. I like to add sliced cucumber, lemon, orange, grapefruit, strawberry, blueberry, or make a strong tea and drink that over ice.
● My fav supplements for curbing sugar cravings - When my sugar cravings are really coming on strong I like to take one of the following supplements: chromium picolinate, l-glutamine, 5-HTP, or inulin extract. These all help manage your blood glucose, which is a major driver of sugar cravings.
● Make your own chocolate - Chocolate is comforting and has lots of healthy qualities. It’s easy to make your own with raw cacao powder, coconut oil, and stevia or xylitol for a natural sweetener. Check out this recipe for inspiration.
