How to Kick Your Sugar Cravings to the Curb
I’m pretty sure I came out of the womb screaming for sugar. I’m twice as sweet as I am salty and it has always been such a challenge to keep my sugar cravings under control! Combine my natural sweet tooth with the postpartum hormones, stress and the saturation of sugar in our culture and I’m basically a lost cause. For this reason I’m passionate about helping you kick your sugar cravings to the curb.
I’ve done a lot of things to try and curb my sugar cravings. Everything from candida cleanses, detoxes and whole foods diets but for some reason these things would fail me as soon as I got a single taste of that sweetness I had been trying so hard to avoid. I remember back when I was a little girl struggling to listen to my grade 1 teacher. My mom had decided it was necessary to cut all forms of sugar out of my diet. This made a huge difference for me as a child! Knowing this affected me so wildly as s child should be enough to make one quit sugar for life but sugar is thrown in our faces on a daily basis and the temptations are endless. Doesn’t it drive you crazy when you pack your kids a healthy lunch and when they come home they announce excitedly “It was Megan’s birthday and we all got cupcakes!”? (this happens everyday at our house, I swear!)
We all know that sugar isn’t good for us but it sneaks into our diet from the time we are born and now as adults we need to fuel our 20+ year addiction! So what’s a girl to do? You want to lose weight and ditch the sugar habit but you just can’t say no to everything that comes your way.
I have the secret recipe that will blow your mind and will aid in your fight against sugar better than anything ever before. I have become so in love with this recipe I literally make it every night at 6:45pm. It takes 1 hour and 15 minutes to freeze and by the time my kids are in bed I get to chow down and enjoy every little bite (undisturbed, which is a nice bonus since I’m so busy with 5 kids and can hardly taste the other meals of the day).
The key to your sugar cravings is finding an alternative like my recipe below that will knock your socks off. One that will let you say no to cheesecake, ice cream, Twix and Reese peanut butter cups! Yes friends it’s that good!! My husband and kids love to make fun of me when I have my “fudge time”. Discovering this treat has allowed me to say no, even to the biggest temptations because I have my nightly chocolate fix to look forward to. I will warn you, I like my treats rich! So this is Filling, very rich and 40 grams of protein. I know many people don’t like to eat right before bed so pick your favorite time of day to add this recipe to your meal plan. Get ready to Indulge your sweet side without the sugar!
