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 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?

    Taming the sweet tooth? Got a nuclear bomb handy? I would if I could...! :-)

My breakfast is usually plain yogurt with a few natural almonds or apple slices on the side. Sometimes I'll stir baby spinach into the yogurt.

    I went cold turkey....first 2 weeks were rough, the 3rd not too bad. Now I have a sense of appetite control and don't get those ravenous cravings for all sorts of carbs.

Also, I've found mouthwash and/or gum help alleviate any momentary desires for noshing!

    Awesome idea. I really need to work on this area too.

    Try this- take a 6oz container of non-fat plain yogurt and add in 1-2 tsp of (whatever flavor you like) Jell-O sugar free, fat free pudding mix. You can either stop there or add some fruit. It's sweet, filling, and healthy :) I highly recommend the pistachio!

    But you are so moderate about your sugar intake, that it's startles me to perceive this as a hurdle.

    That is a good idea.
Oh yeah...I have to get some spaghetti squash.
Yay for being satisfied with a savory breakfast!!
