Anonymous asked: I eat healthy most of the time but get intense afternoon sugar cravings and end up eating lollies/processed sugar and junk food around 4/5pm. Do you have any advice for getting around this? You're blog is the best! :)
A few things to consider, have you eaten breakfast & have you had enough to eat? Often if we don’t eat enough in the beginning of the day our body craves high calorie foods later in the day.
If you start your day with a low G1 breakfast you will have energy and less likely to get cravings later. Chia, quinoa or oatmeal porridge in the morning (or try the pancakes I just posted!) with fresh fruit will regulate your blood sugar levels.
Adding cinnamon will also help crave sugary foods. I would recommend making a smoothie at this time around 4/5pm, something like banana, almond or coconut milk, cinnamon & a few dates - blend that up and you will feel satisfied and hit that sweet craving!
Thanks for reading - I hope that helps :)
