Tips for Taming Your Sweet Tooth
Start with a protein and nutrient-rich breakfast. In a hurry try this. Have 2 boiled eggs (prepared the night before) sliced and topped with avocado and tomato. Instead of coffee, opt for green tea which can further cut sugar cravings.
Replace refined sweets with nutrient-dense fruits. This will keep blood sugar fluctuations in check and give you a boost of disease-fighting phytochemicals. Blue fruits (blueberries, blackberries) fight oxidation in the brain. Apples support the liver. Cantaloupe packs a healthy dose of immune-boosting beta carotene.
Eat healthy fats. If you’re trying to cut back on sweets, don’t go low-fat. Nourishing fats are highly satiating and can help curb sugar cravings. Coconut oil and ghee are great for stir-frying vegetables. Walnut, avocado and extra virgin olive oils are good for salads.
