If you plan on cutting down on that sweet tooth of yours or to manage that sugar habit better, here is a list of foods to help curb that sugar craving:


A superfood in many ways, Spirulina is super rich in minerals and micro-nutrients that helps your body make energy and fill nutritional gaps. When your body cravings gets what it wants, it will not crave sugar, salt, starches so much.

Thank you, this supermarket has been a boon- and I am happy that I live in the neighbourhood.
I love the tips- just like the one about sugar cravings- being a diabetic and living on my own this gives me an incentive to go for healthy choices.
It would be remiss of me, if I did not mention the excellent friendly staff.
