Yesterday I encouraged you to take sugar out of your diet. How many of you start to get anxiety or even anger when I say you need to stop eating sugar? If you immediately think of all the reasons to not stop or have an emotional reaction to it chances are you are addicted. In order to improve your health you need to stop eating sugar. I know what your next question is going to be…”What do I do when I have a sugar craving?”
Here are my go to dessert recipes:
1. Peanut Butter or Almond Butter Balls. Take some nut butter (read the label to make sure nuts are the only ingredient), throw in some raw coconut and some raisins and mix it up. Roll into tiny balls and eat. Nuts are high in calories so do not go crazy with these.
2. Blueberry “Ice Cream”. Put 1 can of coconut milk into a high powered blender (I have the Vita-Mix), add 2 cups of frozen berries (blueberries are my favorite) and blend until smooth. This will give you several servings. It will re-freeze but will end up being hard. I just stick it on the counter for 15 minutes and it is ready to eat again. Yummy.
3. Coconut Mint Balls. Take some coconut oil, add some raw coconut and add organic mint flavoring. Mix together and roll into really small balls. These are a pleasant surprise of minty freshness.
Being sugar free and healthy is very doable. You just have to think outside of the box. Enjoy.
Yours In Health!
