Let’s face it, taming a sweet tooth is never easy for a diabetic, the choices are never ending.
From fruits and vegetables, to cookies and candies, not to mention the pastries, dairy products, cakes, pies, and most importantly the myriad of myths!
We are stuck in between, “You can’t eat this,” and “You shouldn’t eat that,” yet the craving within us continues to persist!
There is always a personal danger involved in the taming of any beast; a “sweet tooth” is no exception!
(The dangers for a diabetic range from feelings of guilt, to high blood glucose levels)
All of that aside, we are still left with the need to suppress our desire for something “sweet to eat.”
This discussion is not about what is right, or wrong, good or bad, nutritional values or quantities, it’s all about “how do you temporarily tame your desire for sweets?”
What is your favorite sweet tooth tamer?
