1. Use spices to boost flavor. Why rely on sugar for a flavor boost when there are so many delicious healthy spices to choose from? Cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg lend a sweet flavor, while savory spices like garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, and paprika are incredibly flavorful and satisfying. Try sprinkling cinnamon on your toast or oatmeal. You won’t even need sugar!
2. Savor a cup of tea. When cravings strike, sometimes a warm cup of tea is all you really need. Try a cup of Egyptian licorice mint tea, Yogi Throat Comfort tea, or other naturally sweet teas. These herbal teas are spicy and sweet – no need to sweeten them further. Green tea steeped with lemon and ginger can provide a natural tart treat that will keep you away from the cookie jar.
3. Get creative in the kitchen. When you have some extra time on the weekend, prep some easy natural treats you can enjoy throughout the week:
