During the 30-day Candida cleanse and quitting sugar I’ve been thinking about my relationship to sweets. Growing up we were allowed to eat candy once a week on Saturdays (“Candy Day”) and drink small bottle of soda during sauna night which was also once per week. I wasn’t big on cookies or cakes even when I did one year training in baking school and had the opportunity to eat as many free cakes and cinnamon buns as I wanted.
But as I’ve gotten older I have started craving for sweets, especially at work. Which makes me think it is because I dislike my day job and I’m looking to treat myself for dealing with it. That just may be the case. Here’s my two easy ways to break your sugar addiction:
1. Eat fermented foods and drink probiotic beverages
2. Eat sour foods
This one makes sense because I tend to like sour things a ton. The sour taste of foods like lemons, limes, cultured coconut yogurt, kumquats, apple cider vinegar and rhubarb, will naturally curb your cravings for sugar.
