Suffering from a sugar addiction? We’ve got you covered. As one of the most addictive substances, it may seem difficult to avoid the temptation of such a delicious ingredient, but it is possible. How, you ask…self-control and a handful of healthy alternatives.
For those of you with a sweet tooth (raises hand), we’re in this challenge together. Find out how to proactively eliminate eating (and drinking) sucrose.
Whenever you have a craving for a sugary soda, pour yourself a cup of tea instead. The subtle sweetness from green tea will help quash the sugar impulse. Fresh peppermint tea is another good alternative. If you’re looking for a little carbonation, reach for sparkling water over soda.
No surprise here, but cocktails are typically mixed with juice or soda making them not only high in calories, but sugar too. When you do drink, we suggest tequila on the rocks (Kourt’s favorite).
When you’re traveling, pack your own snacks. This way, you can bite on things like healthy pretzels, organic snap peas, and gluten-free cookies while en route. Bonus: you’ll likely save money by bringing food from home rather than resorting to gas station or pricey airport options.
Make Your Own Salad Dressing
