How to Reduce Sugar Cravings With Ease
Nov 01, 2017
Here are a few of my favorite ways to eliminate sugar cravings and stay on track to creating more energy, clear skin, weight loss, and so much more!
Cinnamon - Naturally helps to balance blood sugar levels and adds a familiar taste of comfort to things like tea and coffee.
Chromium - A mineral that’s often deficient if you find yourself craving sugar and refined carbs. If you find that you have any level of blood sugar imbalance chromium is a great choice.
Exercise - Sometimes the only reason you’re even craving sugar is that your body and brain are addicted to the rush of feel-good hormones. Exercise does the same thing, except it’s MUCH healthier.
Journalling/meditation/prayer - If you’re feeling emotional and your first instinct is to reach for the ice cream, try writing in a journal instead, meditating &/or prayer. You’ll feel so much better and getting your emotions out is often all that’s needed.
Citrus essential oil - Taking a few deep inhalations of lemon or orange essential oil will provide a jolt of uplifting feel-good hormones as well as a gentle energy boost.
Drink tea - Herbal teas, especially licorice tea which is naturally sweet, are great for providing a touch of sweetness alongside delicious flavor.
Take a whole foods multivitamin - Sugar cravings stem from nutrient deficiencies, taking a whole foods vitamin supplement can help to address deep-seated nutritional issues and get you back on track to feeling food and craving free. Better yet, ensure you are eating a whole foods diet.

Warmed Spicey Cash Milk
- 1/4 Cup organic cashews (soaked in water for 8 hours or over night)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 medjool date (or keep it low glycemic and use stevia to sweeten - just sweeten to your taste)
- 1 inch piece of fresh ginger grated (I store mine in the fridge- easier to grate)
- 1 tbsp cinnamon (my favorites)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla powder
- 2 cups hot water
- grated nutmeg for garnish (and flavor)
- Optional flavors - try adding in raw cacao powder and a pinch of cayenne pepper for a Mayan hot chocolate. Or keep it really simple and use a chai spice blend in place of the individual spices.
- Rinse the cashews and add to a blender along with unsweetened shredded coconut, Medjool date (or stevia), ginger, cinnamon and hot water.
- Blend in a high speed blender for about 2 minutes, until frothy and steaming.
- double or triple the recipe and store the rest in the fridge and re-heat before serving.
- This is a great drink to add in some dried mushrooms such as chaga or reishi and really up the health factor.
With Grace and Gratitude!
