Herbal Teas to Control Sugar Cravings
Starting a new journey detoxifying from sugar can be a difficult task. And all the same, continuing to stay away from sugar can be a lifelong challenge for most people. It’s important to find things that can replace the sugar intake or ease the cravings of it throughout the day.
Below are some herbal tea options that could help you in your journey towards a healthier diet without all the sugar!
Cinnamon bark makes a beautifully spicy and bold tea. Because the flavor is so bold it could potentially curb your taste buds when you feel the need for a fix! This tea even has the ability to balance out your blood sugar levels, which could calm the need for your body to feel like it needs sugar. There are also many great blends that incorporate cinnamon if you want to introduce some other flavors. Try this Organic Cinnamon Orange Spice Tea for the perfect chilly evening cap!
This tea comes from a plant in South Africa and is also known as the red bush tea. You can play with the steeping times of this to create lighter, or stronger flavor profiles. It has been known to taste as though it has been sweetened, although there is no sugar present at all. If you have a big sweet tooth and you’re struggling this loose Rooibos Tea could be a great place for you to start!
Instead of reaching for a slice of cake or pie after dinner, try brewing up a cup of peppermint tea. This brew is minty, refreshing and has calming properties not just for the stomach but body and mind as well.
Ever have black licorice candy as a kid? You can get the same flavor profile by brewing a cup of this licorice root tea without any of the added sugar! Plus, it aids in digestion which makes it a good after meal treat.
My last recommendation is this loose tea blend made up of Organic peppermint leaf, fennel seed, elder flowers, and linden flower and leaf. The name says it all, as this tea aids in digestion, mellows the body, and has a refreshing taste. Check out this loose leaf tummy tea!
