When the sweet tooth seems like it can’t be tamed, I know there are plenty of ways to satisfy it without spiking my blood sugar.
For starters, I honor it. Craving sweet things is hardwired into us and restricting or swearing off sweets entirely can backfire and make the craving even stronger. I always tell my clients to replace before you remove, so if you want to reduce the amount of sweets you eat, find healthier options to replace the sugar-filled versions.
Take cereal, for example. Cereal is a quick easy breakfast or late night snack, but conventional versions are filled with sugar and starting or ending my day with the inevitable blood sugar rollercoaster ride that follows is not my idea of a good time. Fortunately, there are other options, my favorite being Magic Spoon cereal! With 13-14 gm of protein, only 4 gm net carbs per bowl, and flavors that take you back to the days of Saturday morning cartoons, it’s a no brainer to keep a box (or 4) in your pantry. Try it today—you won’t be disappointed—and use code KELLYLEVEQUE for $5 off your order!
Another way I satisfy my sweet tooth is by creating a breakfast treat that tastes decadent and is also filled with the Fab 4—protein, fat, fiber, and greens—to turn off those hunger hormones without impacting my blood sugar. This Dark Chocolate Mousse is a perfect example!
