Please take 4 minutes of your day to watch this very informative and succinct commentary on our relationship to sugar. I couldn’t have worded it any better.
Two important additional takeaways:
1. There are plenty of naturally sweet, nutritious, and tasty foods we can consume to our heart’s delight. Try slowly replacing your sugar cravings with these. They include all fruits and many of the sweet veggies such as carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, sweet peppers, and some of the squashes. Even dark high quality chocolate can satisfy this desire.
No need to divorce yourself from sugar…just be choosy and wise, like all relationships!
P.S. The great news? Slowly transitioning to healthier sweet foods actually does transform your palate and your cravings over time. The romance can continue!
