Happy & Nutty: Satisfy Your Cravings Without the Glucose Spike!

Nutties contain added sugars, which are essentially refined or simple carbs. These are absorbed into the bloodstream very quickly and can cause a glucose spike, especially if you eat a lot of these sweets. Further, the Nutties with added sugars are high in calories and fat minus vitamins and minerals, so you end up consuming empty calories without essential nutrients.

Ways to enjoy the sweet treats without hampering glucose levels
• Reduce the number of Nutties you eat.
• You can have a dried fruit such as 1 apricot with a handful of nuts, this can help to reduce your craving for sweet Nutties.
• If you’re craving something sweet, eat a Low-Glycemic fruit such as an apple, pear or orange with almond butter instead of Nutties.
• Choose sugar-free dark chocolate instead of regular chocolate.

The sugar contained in Nutties releases hormones, such as endorphins and serotonin, which give you a natural feel-good high that has a calming effect on the body. This is followed by a crash that can leave you feeling irritable, tired and craving more sugary foods. This vicious cycle can lead to many health problems like obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
