Uh, oh. Despite all good intentions, disaster may hit and we may spiral out of control and fall down the rabbit hole.
Know thyself. I'm the kind of person who gets constant cravings for sugar once I begin having it. So, a teaspoon of honey in my tea will lead to ten more. Then I will crave some ice cream and who knows where that will lead? I can feel some of you nodding your heads through the computer. I'm preaching to the choir.
Constant cravings can be nipped in the bud if we regularly consume nutrient dense foods. Eat lots of high fat-good fat foods like raw butter, raw nuts and seeds, avocado, coconut, fish, and raw dairy to curb sweets cravings. Fats kill the sweets cravings in most of us and keep us satiated for hours longer than sweets and simple carbs.
Once the good habits are really solid, one can make high fat desserts with raw chocolate and Lakanto, coconut flour, pastured eggs, fresh cream, etc. Be creative! A rich, decadent dessert that's grain free and sugar free doesn't cause one to have constant cravings any more, especially if it's high fat!
