What about when you wake up wanting a chocolate croissant?

If you’ve read my book, you’ll know that I believe in eating what will satisfy you. You’ll also know that you can set yourself up to fail if your blood sugar is all over the place.

So what do you do when you wake up wanting a chocolate croissant?

Do you have it, because you really want it? Or do you go without because you’re trying to ‘be good’?

An alternative is to see if you can clarify what you’re really after. If it’s the rich chocolate taste that you crave, along with a good hit of carbs, there are other ways to accomplish this.

A bowl of porridge – which is healthy and low on the glycemic index – can be pimped up with a generous spoonful of cocoa and a bit of honey or brown sugar to sweeten it. It’s amazing how chocolatey porridge can taste without chocolate – just cocoa powder. It’s worth a try – it might solve your cravings AND balance your blood sugar.
