Hey there. Welcome to 1 Minute with Naomi. You’re here to be inspired by practical and unique ways to transform your health and your life.
Today, let’s talk about 10 foods that can combat your sugar cravings.
Sugar cravings are brought on by a series of different events. It can be anything like food allergies, adrenal fatigue, your menstrual cycle, parasites, candida, perceived deprivation of sugar (which was the case for me). There are a lot of different reasons why we have sugar cravings.
But let’s talk about the 10 foods that can help you combat some of these sugar cravings:
It’s not really a food, but I want you to fill up and flush out. Fill up on the water so that you’re not constantly eating. The water will help you feel full and flush out some of the bad stuff.
Seaweed, any type of Algae (primarily spirulina) will help you get more of those vitamins and minerals into your system. They are very, very rich ones that we need and are depleted in.
Fermented Foods and Drinks
This includes kombucha, kefir, sauerkraut. It’s all of those kind of bitter tasting foods.
Which includes beans, meats, dairy, and eggs.
Which prevents your blood sugar from spiking throughout the day, so that’s a good one.
High in serotonin and chromium which helps with the blood sugar regulation.
Lots of them! Lots of vitamins and minerals like magnesium (which almost all of us are deficient in).
First of all, they’re fun. But they’re also sweet, which can help a little bit with that sugar craving. And they are low-glycemic.
You have to be careful with nuts because for a lot of us (including myself), it can be a trigger food. We can end up eating nuts in abundance, so we don’t want to go that route. They are high in healthy fat, protein, and nutrients. So, if you don’t have a problem with nuts, go this route.
Pumpkin and Pumpkin Seeds
High in magnesium, which helps with chocolate cravings. So, if you feel like you’ve been craving chocolate in particular (and it’s not your menstrual cycle), you might be lacking magnesium.
Almost every single food I’ve mentioned above has high doses of magnesium in it. Because magnesium is one of those nutrients that we tend to be drastically missing in our diet.
So, if you start eating these foods and putting them into your diet and you find out that you aren’t craving sugar as much, it could be that your unique sugar cravings were purely just the result of not having enough vitamins and minerals in your diet.
But, for most of us, it’s not just the lack of vitamins and minerals. It’s also a host of a lot of other little things that are contributing to our sugar cravings. And if you want to learn more about this problem, I have a FREE training: Transform Your Sugar Cravings. It’s totally free and about 60 minutes long. I dive into 3 big reasons why we have sugar cravings (and actionable steps to take).
