7 foods against cravings for sweets

Are you constantly craving sweets? Whether in the office or on the couch in the evening, with these seven foods you won't sin - and if you do, only in a healthy way.
Some people don't eat sweets because they simply don't crave them. Unbelievable! We are regularly hit by cravings for sweets. Scientists say that we even have to fight cravings twice a day - around 4 and 10 pm. But what can we do about it? Healthy foods with a sweet taste of their own can help get over that first craving - like these seven...

1. trick 17: the cucumber smoothie
A fresh smoothie made with cucumbers is not only low in calories but tastes naturally sweet. With it, we can trick our body in search of sugar.

Big plus: homemade cucumber smoothie contains vitamins B, C, and E, as well as the minerals calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus. Because the valuable vitamins and minerals are in the peel, simply rinse the cucumber well before chopping, but do not peel.

2. chia vanilla pudding with cinnamon
Chia pudding not only tastes great, but it's also very healthy. And it's especially great for those with a sweet tooth because the vanilla it contains reduces cravings. While cinnamon regulates the blood sugar in our body. So the next attack does not attack us already 30 minutes later.

3. coconut water with a squeeze of lemon
Coconut water with lemon is a sweet-tasting, natural thirst quencher with high mineral content.

The isotonic drink helps against cravings for sweets just by its naturally sweet intrinsic taste.
4. chocolate almond milk
Is the chocolate craving too much after all? Try a glass of unsweetened chocolate almond milk (from the supermarket) and if you like, add a pinch of cinnamon. This is the low-calorie alternative against chocolate cravings.

5. rose tea with honey
The warm tea calms the mind and prepares for sleep. The honey works against the evening jitters.

6. fresh fruit: apricots, peaches, and pears.
By nature sweet are especially apricots, peaches, and pears. And that's exactly why they're a healthy alternative to all the sweets you can find in your kitchen.

If you get a craving for sweets, you can cut the fruit into small pieces and consciously enjoy the fruity sweetness in a fruit salad.

7. Jerusalem artichoke tuber curbs sweet cravings
The Jerusalem artichoke tuber offers a diverse mix of important nutrients and fiber. But against the sweet hunger helps especially the contained carbohydrate "inulin".

Brushed and washed, the tuber can be eaten out of hand like an apple. But be careful not to eat too much of it. This can lead to flatulence and diarrhea.
