Outsmart your Sweet Tooth

Tara Adlestone, MISSFITS Nutrition
We all know too well what it’s like when that sugar craving kicks in. For some of us, it’s easier to resist that others, but whether it’s that 3pm slump in the office of after dinner in front on the TV, we’ve all experienced the desire for that sugar hit.

We’ve got you. Say goodbye to refined sugars, causing your blood sugar levels to go crazy, and instead indulge in a healthier food group that curbs those urges. Our solution? Protein.

Protein is one of three essential macronutrients that our bodies need to survive, as well as supporting stronger muscles, protein reduces the risk of osteoporosis and fractures. Protein is essential for a whole variety of functions and protein powder is just a convenient way to increase your protein intake. Protein will keep you feeling fuller for longer and therefore you won’t be reaching for the cookie jar. 

We’ve designed 2 recipes that switch up refined sugars for naturally occurring ones, helping to stabilize blood sugar levels, maintain physical and emotional balance, stop crazy food cravings and sustain consistent energy levels.
