I have always had a sweet tooth, for as long as I can remember! As much as I try to control my sweet habits, the holidays seems to creep in and treats are all around me. I will admit that I have been known to let it go during the holidays and not worry so much about my sweet intake, however recently, I have tried to maintain some control as diabetes does run in the family and I also try to remind myself what it feels like in January to start off the New Year even further behind than I was at the beginning of December as far as my health goes. I also know that keeping an equal blood sugar level is also important for your mood and health in general.
Here are my tips for controlling your holiday sweet tooth:
- DRINKS – opt-in for a healthier drink like cranberry juice and soda water, instead of straight juice or pop.
- FRUIT – load up on FRUIT as it is nature’s candy and can help your body balance out those sweet cravings in a much healthier way.
- BAKING – If you are like me and love to bake, FREEZE your baking as soon as it is done (and has cooled) so that you remove the temptation to nibble. While you are doing the baking, chew a piece of gum to distract your taste buds from tempting you into wanting to lick the spoon!
