Step Away From The Freezer And Pantry
Do you ever have one of those days where you eat so well, then 7pm hits and you are ravenous? You are standing in the pantry or opening the freezer, staring right into those ice cream cartons. You don't want to ruin all your progress from the day, but ice cream would be so good right now or maybe those bag of chips are calling your name or the homemade cookies that are staring at you. Maybe you don't have any unhealthy items in your house but a relative just dropped off some homemade pie...it smells and looks so good. One piece couldn't possibly hurt you...right??? One piece wouldn't, but my problem is once I start having sugar it is so hard for me to break that cycle. That one piece of pie turns into two or the ramekin of ice cream turns into a large bowl. That darn sugar!
Here is great alternative that tastes amazing, quick and easy to make and will kill this urges in an instant. Slice up apples, melt all natural peanut butter, then drizzle the peanut butter over the apple slices and sprinkle some mini chocolate chips. A friend of mine posted this and I decided to try it. My kids loved it as much as I did. There are plenty of healthy alternatives out there. Another thing that has helped my sugar cravings, is my Shakeology. I know if I drink that I will not have the urge for sugar, I won't have cravings and I will be full for the night. At 7pm I will make a shake and be fine until I go to bed at 10pm. Kick those night time cravings to the curb! If you would like to learn more about Shakeology, check out my website at www.shakeology.com/katieabryant
