Nutrition Tip of The Week: STOP CARB/SUGAR CRAVINGS ON THE SPOT!
Last week we posted a strategy to stop your carb/sugar cravings when on a high protein, low carb diet. Today, we are going to give you a quick solution to stop these cravings on the spot!
As mentioned in our last post, when you crave carbs and sugar it's associated with lack of good fat intake from your diet.
The next time you're really craving carbs/sugar, preheat a pan on medium heat, add some ORGANIC butter and throw a handful of nuts and saute. After eating this, your carb/sugar cravings should vanish.
If you have time, here's a great recipe to add to this:
2 1/4 c. assorted unsalted nuts
2 Tbs. coarsely chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. Maldon or other sea salt
1 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Toss the nuts and spread out on a large baking sheet. Toast in the oven till they become light golden brown, about 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine the rosemary, cayenne, salt and melted butter.
Thoroughly toss the nuts in the spiced butter and serve warm. Now you have large amount of these to store somewhere and replace it with your bite-size brownies.
