I adore herbs and spices of almost any kind, and there are many wonderful herbs and spices out there that can actually help curb a sweet tooth if you have a huge one like I do! I used to live off refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, breads, and anything sweet you can think of. When I gave sugar up for good, I discovered just how many wonderful natural foods out there actually have a sweet taste without any sugar at all. I like to use these herbs and spices in almost everything I eat each day in some form or another. I don’t necessarily use them all at one time, but experiment and find fun combinations to try. Each of these have been proven to have a positive effect on your blood sugar, digestion, and many other benefits you might not know about until now. If you’re looking to curb a sweet tooth the right way, just open your spice cabinet and go to it!
Cinnamon is by far, one of the most popular spices that can help curb a sweet tooth almost instantly. It has a natural sweet taste to begin with, but it is also proven to lower the glycemic index of other foods when eaten with them. Cinnamon is also recommended for diabetics for this very reasons. It is wonderful to lower insulin levels in the bloodstream. Add in some to your yogurt, smoothies, coffee, tea, oatmeal, quinoa, on eggs, sprinkle it on some raw carrots, and put it on veggies like sweet potatoes, and winter squash.
