Easter is long over, but you still feel like you consumed half your body weight in chocolate bunnies, easter eggs and hot cross buns.
Trust me, you are not alone!
So now it’s time to be strong and quit sugar, get back to some exercise, and try to lose that extra kilo or two that seems to have crept on over Easter and Anzac celebrations.
It’s a little overwhelming going from all that fine food to a celery stick and a kale salad. It is simply not fun.
Those afternoon slumps……
Yes, those dreaded afternoon slumps are very tough– especially when that nasty sugar withdrawal craving kicks in. Fructose is one addictive beast and it doesn’t let go without a fight.
If you have Chai as a staple in your house or office, you can use it to fend off that sugar craving any time of the day. You can even make a cup of Chai on the go – all you need is an infuser, a travel mug, hot water, and a dash of milk if you prefer. It's so easy!
It's the hint of natural sweetness in that delicious cup of Chai tea that gets you through any sugar craving that comes your way.
And there is also plenty of goodness thanks to the cardamom, cinnamon and ginger which are superfoods containing high levels of antioxidants and phytochemicals with cancer-prevention properties.
And you can spice things up even more by adding our favourite anti-inflammatory spice turmeric, with a cup of The Chai Room’s Turmeric & Raw Honey Chai or the Turmeric & Coconut Nectar Chai which have been gently infused with organic coconut nectar and organic raw honey.
Getting back to eating healthily doesn’t have to be punishing. Remember it is all about moderation and balance. And a lovely cup of Chai to fend off those dreaded sugar cravings.
