Can't shake those sweet cravings? Here's a remedy for you.
This is a simple home remedy that can help with those sweet cravings and spikes in energy that can occur mid-morning and mid-afternoon. It has a mild sweet flavor and relaxing energy that will help ease some of those sweet cravings.
To save time, make enough for two days and drink one cup in the afternoon at about 3 pm. I only make this remedy when I am feeling like I need some support while getting off sugar or when I am feeling tense and moody. If the cravings and low blood sugar continue, make it daily between 5-10 days depending on how you feel.
Sweet vegetable drink:
4 cups water
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1/4 cup finely diced carrot
1/4 cup finely diced squash (butternut or kabocha)
1/4 cup finely diced green cabbage
1. In a large saucepan, bring the water to a mild boil. Add the vegetables. Let it come to a boil and then lower the heat to simmer gently. Simmer for 20-30 minutes. Remove from heat.
2. Strain the vegetables out, reserving the liquid. Serving size is 1 cup of the liquid. Will keep refrigerated for two days. Compost the strained vegetables
