Sugar Cravings + Intuitive Eating?

As you already know, I’m a big fan of intuitive eating. However, over the years the hardest part for me has always been sweet treats. How can I eat healthy when my body calls for white sugar? When I started to cut down on sugar, then the only way I could maintain the healthy eating was healthy alternatives. Yes, I know that honey and dates are full of sugar. Still, it’s always better than white sugar.

How I make Healthy Choices? Freezer?

For that reason, I always try to make sure that I have some healthy alternatives in the freezer. Once my sugar cravings kick in, then I have something to make better choices. I have used this method for the last four years. Now I don’t even crave for usual cookies or other white sugar snacks. I don’t care about it, and I rather eat these paleo coconut energy bars.
