10 Tricks For Avoiding The Treat Cravings

October 28, 2015

  1. Eat regularly throughout the day. Often we go too long and our bodies go into starvation mode and we crave sugar. Same goes for the kids!
  2. Adding cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, or cloves to meals or smoothies to naturally sweeten food and help balance blood sugar.
  3. Consume more clean protein to balance blood sugar.
  4. Sick with low-glycemic fruits like green apples, berries and grapefruit.
  5. Eat foods high in B vitamins, such as:
    Grass-fed meats (preferably organic)
    Fish such as salmon or sardines
    Pasture raised eggs
    Leafy greens and vegetables such as kale, asparagus, and spinach
    Lentils
  6. Make sure to get enough healthy fats–coconut oil, avocado, ultra premium olive oil and seeds, for example.
  7. Exercise and relax—often we reach for sweet treats when we’re feeling stressed.
  8. Having healthier treats on-hand made with natural sweetners or stevia like our Chocolate Power Protein Balls.
  9. Drink an entire glass of water before reaching for that sweet treat.
  10. Eat more sweet roasted root vegetables like sweet potatoes, parsnips, and carrots sprinkled with cinnamon.
