Another tool in the less sugar arsenal
Wednesday, February 06, 2013
If you've known me for a while, you know I'm team sugar. Yesterday I was clicking around carrotsncake.com
blog yesterday - one I've followed a while (awesome, simple paleo recipes btw) - and stumbled across her blog on how she kicked her sugar addiction.
She had a very interesting suggestion too; one that certainly never occurred to me! You know how you get that I want a sweet after dinner feeling? Even when you're not hungry?
When she got that feeling, she simply had another serving of her healthy meal. Who knew? It's something I will experiment with . . . I'd start tonight but it's leftovers & there's barely enough for the two of us as it is!
I made the crispy curried sweet potatos from her site yesterday (with the sweet potatos I cooked up with that spaghetti squash & now I have to get more spaghetti squash ecause I found another recipe I want to try). Awesome! I had them with my savory muffin for a savory breakfast this morning.
Did I miss my sweet breakfast? YES!
Was I satisfied? Yes!
You know the old saying: if you do what you always did you get what you always got.
Any strategies for taming the sweet tooth?
