Tip: Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

The key to satisfying your sweet tooth without experiencing sugar’s chronic health risks is to satisfy it naturally and intelligently.

Getting sugar out of the diet is essential for good health.  The key to satisfying your sweet tooth without experiencing sugar’s chronic health risks is to satisfy it naturally and intelligently.  This means relying on moderate amounts of more healthful, nutritious sources of sweets that don’t deplete your body as refined sugars do.

Call to Action:

1.  Eliminate refined sweeteners from the basic foods you eat every day.

Note: Most of the refined sweeteners Americans eat are found in processed foods.  Once you eliminate the sources of hidden sugars and eat more natural foods, your desire for excessive sugar is less of a problem.

2.  Eat and snack on foods consisting of their own natural sweeteners, like whole, fresh fruits and vegetables.

To your wellness,

p.s. Believe it or not, sweet treats can be a part of a healthy diet.  See some of my favorite dessert recipes that are only made from natural, unrefined ingredients.

  1. It can take a while but once you get sugar out of your diet you can begin to taste the sweetness in vegetables. People used to think I was mad when I told them this but they discovered they could too once their taste buds adjusted.

    If you ever taste anything with sugar in after being off it for some time you quickly realize how sweet sugary things were. It is quite an assault on your taste buds.

    1. Hi Sandy,
      I couldn’t agree more. My son and I were just discussing this today. We were looking at pictures of Hostess and Little Debbie snacks and just imagining how horrible they would taste to us now. (My son has never had any but he’s had other sickening sweet things to know.) Not only the sugar but all the other chemicals they use in those products.

      I just ate a bowl of red and green grapes for dessert. They satisfy my sweet tooth now just fine.
