The most simple ways to cope when you go SUGAR FREE

Uncategorized Feb 24, 2017

Breaking up with sugar doesn’t have to be devastating. It can be like one of those breakups that’s kind of mutual, that feels necessary and totally OK. It all depends on how you approach it. You can make it hard for yourself, or you can make it easy.  

Here are a few of the best ways to reduce sugar cravings and make eliminating sugar a piece of sugar-free cake!  



Licorice tea after meals - Naturally sweet, helps balance blood sugar, and it’s great for digestion.  

Strength in substitutions - Swap bread with slices of roasted sweet potato (throw them in the toaster for a couple rounds of toasting to make it even simpler), pudding with chia and coconut milk, bananas or high-fiber berries etc.  

Eat plenty of protein and fat - If your body’s been running off sugar for awhile you need to give it a new fuel source to draw from. High-quality protein and saturated fats like coconut oil, avocados, MCT oil and ghee are great for stabilizing blood sugar levels and providing a valuable energy source.  

Embrace fibre - Eat plenty of fiber to stabilize your blood sugar levels. Greens, raw vegetables, berries, hemp seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds etc. are all great sources of healthy fibre.  

Make your water exciting - If you’re used to sugary drinks, try making your water more fun. I like to add sliced cucumber, lemon, orange, grapefruit, strawberry, blueberry, or make a strong tea and drink that over ice.  You can also add a vanilla flavored stevia to some sparkling water.

My fave supplements for curbing sugar cravings - When my sugar cravings are really coming on strong I like to take one of the following supplements: chromium polynicotinate, magnesium, omega-3's &/or inulin extract.  

Make your own chocolate - Chocolate is comforting and has lots of healthy qualities. It’s easy to make your own with raw cacao powder, coconut oil, and stevia or xylitol for a natural sweetener.

1 Cup Coconut Oil
½ Cup Raw Cocoa Powder
½ Teaspoon vanilla bean powder or 1tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of Sea Salt
1-2 Drops of Organic Peppermint Essential Oil or 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
5 Drops of Liquid Stevia

Process all the ingredients together in a food processor until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Pour into ice cub trays or silicone molds and freeze.
Once frozen, pop the chocolates out of the molds and store them in a freezer zip lock or jar. Enjoy!

note - you can add variety with chopped nuts, unsweetened shredded coconut, cacao nibs, hemp, flax, etc...
