When adopting a healthier diet, one of the biggest challenges is overcoming the cravings for SUGAR.🥤
Because studies have shown that sugar is as addictive as class A drugs like cocaine.
Because sugar targets the exact same area of the brain. An area of the brain that releases the feel good hormone ‘dopamine’.🧠🤗
So you see, if you find cravings for donuts, soda and a sweet slice of cake overwhelming…
It’s because of the addictive grip of sugar on the brain.
The good news is that like any addiction…
Sugar addiction fades with time.
In fact, in as little as two weeks of starting a healthy diet…
Cravings for sugar, fattening foods can VANISHED altogether.
But getting through those two weeks can be tough.
The good news is there are lots of natural alternatives to sugar.
Ingredients that are sweet tasting but wont do a number on your blood glucose levels… or trigger overpowering cravings.
One of these natural sugar alternatives is almond butter… another is cinnamon. 🥜
And I’ve combined them with other sweet tasting yet healthy ingredients to make my deliciously decadent yet healthy Almond & Peach Cake recipe:🥮😋
