Remember the three F’s- fats, fruit, and fiber.
1.) FATS- Eat good healthy fats, like a handful of raw nuts, tablespoon of nut butter, avocado, or vegetbales that have been cooked in grass-fed butter or coconut oil. Raw cashews are a naturally sweet nut and a 1/4 cup will provide your body enough magnesium to help you relax and combat the cravings.
2.) FRUIT- Fruit is naturally sweet and can help combat sugar cravings specifically. Opt for fruit that is lower in fructose like strawberries, blueberries, rasberries, and blackberries. Besides eating fruit by itself, try blending it with nut butter or eating it frozen.
3.) FIBER- High fiber foods will keep you full and satisfied and are great for combating cravings that hit between meals. Try adding ground flax seeds, psyllium husk or chia seeds to your meals along with avocado, artichokes, and acorn squash.
