Sugar or carb craving is a real thing. It’s evident when you’re starting your ketogenic diet plan. But once your body adapts to ketogenic or low carb diets, the craving will stop. It is more like you’re addicted to some of the Class A drugs, which I won’t name. You feel the urge to either take sugar directly or consume some carbs that have refined sugar in them.
The only way to cut this craving or addiction is to ultimately say no to refined sugar or high sugary carbs and opt for the Low carb or ketogenic diets.
Here are some five quick and easy keto treats to curb your cravings.
Pickles are a salty and savory snack that is also sweet. A whole one has about only one gram of carbs and under five calories. They are the best treats to curb your craving since you eat less of them and feel full so fast. If you want to combat your craving so quickly with a keto-friendly meal, then opt for a pickle.
Egg Drop Soup
Egg drop soup is delicious but not portable. As the same name suggests, it’s soup, which you can quickly prepare every time you feel the urge to take sugary carbs. Also, when experiencing a headache or the keto-flu that happens when your body electrolytes are replenished, the egg drop soup is what to drink.
The procedure to make an egg drop is super easy and fast. Choose some of your broth that is ketogenic and bring it to boil for several minutes. Make sure there are no added sugars! Beat your egg, and slowly add it to form egg strands on the mixture, and drink when warm.
Vegetables and Dip
You can try and eat raw veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, and cucumbers to curb your craving. Just make sure only to consume keto-friendly vegetables since they are deficient in carbs. Delicious dip to eat to add to your calorie count. You can also make a vegetable salad by tossing some of the leftovers from your refrigerators. Also, you can still sauté/roast some vegetables in ketogenic spices and coconut oil before serving.
Low Carb Chocolate Milk
This is a sugar-free syrup that you can quickly make in your kitchen. It has few carbs, and all you have to do is to mix all ingredients that include chocolate or strawberry flavored syrup and a ketogenic choice of low carb milk. Instead of using natural dairy milk, you can opt for some low carb milk alternatives such as a cashew milk, almond milk, and Hazelnut milk.
Sugar-Free Jello packs
Do you want a life saver for all your cravings? If yes, then make a sugar-free Jello pack for a late night sweet tooth. Before bedtime, this is the ideal keto treat to take since it has about 5-10 calories per serving.
