Crush Cravings & Avoid Agave, Sweeteners, Honey, Gluten or Dairy
Ever since I began eating cleanly more than a decade ago (no sugar, no agave, no honey, no barley malt and no other sweeteners, plus, no dairy and no gluten), I’ve been hunting for high-quality, nutrient-rich, dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free protein powders to use in my nutrient-rich Cacao-Cado-Chia-Berry Protein Shake every morning.
But this week, in particular, I’m actually surviving and thriving on Power Shakes alone, because I’m recovering from painful dental surgery, can’t eat solid foods for a week, and need ample protein to quickly heal my sore mouth.
So protein powders are on my mind, and I’m so grateful that in recent years, I’ve found plenty of sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free protein powders. Here are my current 8 Favorite Sugar-Free Protein Powders, which can help you get valuable nutrients that you might otherwise not get.
Frankly, it weren’t for my morning shakes, especially this week — when I can’t have any solid food due to dental surgery — I’d be starving or fainting. So here are the protein powders I like best. Please note that I recommend the unflavored ones so you won’t get any sugar, agave, honey or other sweeteners. Since I like all of these options, I’ve put them in alphabetical order. (more…)
Cravings-Crushing Monday: Get Soothed by this Stone Rather than Sugar
Most of you may associate red with the color of love (think, Valentine’s Day), but I invite you to get and cherish a heart-shaped, pink rose quartz, which has been hailed as a powerful healing crystal and as the love Stone.
Rose quartz can be your powerful ally in a number of ways.
To begin, it can have a calming, peaceful, soothing effect—which, of course, is far better than the temporary high you can get from sweets or quickie carbs.
What’s more, although most people think red is best for your Valentine, the color pink is also associated with love. (Naturally, it’s affiliated with breast cancer awareness, too.)
When you see pink, you evoke healing, sweetness, and safety, experts say.
