Healthy Ways to Cure Any Sugar Crave

Sugar cravings can arise from different means, stress, low blood sugar or even when we're sad. Sugar has been known to act as a mood lifter. We sure love our sugar yet as we grow older, we realize we have to inevitably cut our consumption of it. Next time you have those crazy craves, try these instead.

Fruits

The sugar in fruits is a monosaccharide called fructose, a type of carbohydrate. Processed table sugar, on the other hand, is a disaccharide known as sucrose. The former is basically better for you. When you take fruits, it's a win-win, your crave is cured and your health is not compromised.

Honey as a Substitute

How about replacing added sugar with honey in teas or coffee. Honey is also packed with antioxidants that are very beneficial to health.

Smoothies/Natural Juices

Here's a quick way to quench sugar cravings. Throw your favourite fruits in a blender and voooooom, your smoothie is ready. Homemade fruit juices are also super extra when you have a juicer handy. You can even keep extra batches of already cut and cleaned fruits in the refrigerator, all you have to do is pick and blend.

Yoghurt/Parfaits

The rich creamy and sour taste of yoghurt can jolt your taste buds back from any sugar craving. Adding fruits to make a partial even brings the extra sweetness needed.

Water

Water cleanses your palate while giving you a temporary fill, could be enough until the next meal. Carry a water bottle around, this will also increase your hydration rate.

Sugar cravings could show up anytime, you don't have to succumb, try a healthier alternative instead!
