When that sugar craving hits, I always relieve it rather than ignore it. I find that when I ignore it, I binge later on!
One of my go-tos? Hot “chocolate” that is actually tea 🙂 . Tea has ZERO calories and is just so soothing to drink. I buy the chocolate chai tea on Amazon and it’s way cheaper than buying it at the grocery store. I add one packet of Splenda as well as creamer (this one is my current favorite) but you can choose any flavor you like. I will say I’ve experimented with other creamers and I do prefer the ones that are liquid (as opposed to powder). Are they full of preservatives? Probably, but hey, it hasn’t killed me yet 😉 .
Guilt-Free Hot “Chocolate”
1 chocolate chai tea bag
1 Splenda packet
1 serving coffee creamer
- Add hot water to a cup with the tea.
- Steep for 3-5 minutes and remove the tea bag.
- Stir in Splenda and creamer.
