It’s that moment when the stress gets you and you inevitably look for a reprieve. Now if you’re like me, you’ll scour the cabinets for something sweet because hey, nothing ends a meal off better than a sweet fix, right? You wish you could stop it, but the groans and gnawing inside you for sugar is beyond measure. And stress can do that to you, and if you’re someone who suffers from PCOS, ovarian cysts, endometriosis or fibroids, you’re going to want to avoid it at all costs.
Is it possible? Can there be life without sugar?
So here are some tips from my upcoming program that you can start incorporating to silence the sugar demon:
Turn to fat
There is this idea that fat is bad for us. It couldn’t be further from the truth! Our brain is made up of over 60% of fat, our cells are lined with the stuff and hormones need it to be produced and to survive. Fat is vital. And most of the times if I am feeling a sugar craving coming on, then turning to nuts and avocado really helps to satiate my inner sugar monster.
Fill it with fibre
This is a great tip because many of the times when I crave sugar, I’ll make myself this chia pudding that is a great source of fat and fibre.
CREMSICLE CHIA PUDDING
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 syrnge full vanilla stevia
Blend all ingredients together in a blender adding the chia seeds in the end and pour into a bowl to let sit for up to half hour to let gelatinize.
Stevia it’s not your enemy
I know many people hate the stuff, but there are great stevia options out there that don’t leave a metallic taste behind. One of the ones I love is Sweet Leaf. It comes in handy single serve packs that can fit into your purse when you’re on the go.
Unpasteurized apple cider vinegar
The contractive nature of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar helps to counteract the expansive nature of sugar. So by drinking a glass of water with 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar in it, you’ll help to reduce sugar cravings almost immediately.
Sugar truthfully should be considered as a drug since it’s 99.9% pure! It contributes to increased stress levels, weight gain, PCOS, ovarian cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, painful periods, etc. So is it really worth it?
