On a sugar bender

Hey Insiders! Welcome to the Well.

I’ve been on a sugar kick the past few days. I know it’s not great for me, but in the midst of stressors sometimes it’s easy to slip up. In this post I am going to share a video that offers an explanation of why we crave sugar. Personally, I’ve been eating the official cookie of NASCAR (nutter butter – you know you aren’t on a health kick when your snacks are endorsed by NASCAR).

If you do find yourself in the midst of a sugar bender, remember to be kind and gentle with yourself. It’s easier to get and stay on track with healthy eating goals when we are nice to ourselves.

I usually opt for a banana mixed with raw cacao powder to fix my sweet tooth, which offers many nutritional benefits in addition to satisfying my craving.

What’s your guilty pleasure? (You don’t have to feel guilty about it!) I’d love to read about it in the comments. Thanks for stopping by the Well.
