What To Do for Sugar Cravings!!

Tea for Sugar Cravings

These teas are LIFESAVERS for me at night when I have cravings!! The Egyptian Licorice is my favorite, but is harder to find (I got mine at Safeway in the organic section) but the Bigelow one you can find almost anywhere. The Vanilla Chai does have a little caffeine it, but it never seems to bother my sleep. Having a warm liquid in my stomach for some reason seems to curb any cravings. Also, all of these are naturally sweet, but no sugar, carbs or calories. I drink 2-3 cups of tea a day.

The Egyptian Licorice is an herb tea. Here is the blend of herbs: Organic Licorice Root, Organic Cinnamon Bark, Organic Orange Peel, Organic Ginger Root, Organic Cardamom Seed, Organic Black Pepper, Organic Clove Bud, Natural Tangerine Flavor, Natural Cinnamon Oil. YUM!!! It tastes sweet and has a great lingering taste (to me at least). 🙂

The Candy Cane decaf green tea is a combination of peppermint leaf, decaf green tea, orange peel, vanilla, and mint flavor. I like it hot and also cold as an ice tea. My absolute favorite thing to drink right now!! It is seasonal and is only available this time of year. It really helps with cravings for me to fill my stomach up with a hot cup of tea. If you don't have a Trader Joe's near you Celestial Seasonings makes one called Candy Cane Lane that tastes really similar 🙂

Here is a video I made talking about it.


  1. I love peppermint tea too…and a couple of weeks ago I read that people who ‘smelled’ peppermint throughout the day ate less total calories than those who didn’t…guess drinking the tea may help too.

    • Hey Barbara! That is interesting! I would believe it too – gum always helps me as well. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! 🙂

  2. Do you put anything in your tea, or just drink it plain??
