From a young age, I have loved the taste of sweet things.
I grew up in the North East of England and the highlight of my week was to see what flavour of fizzy drink the pop man would bring. For those of you who don’t know, the Pop Man was like a milkman, but he bought fizzy drinks instead of milk. The sweeter and the brighter the flavour, the more I wanted it! I never liked milk as a child. When all the other kids were drinking theirs, I would go thirsty. I later found out as an adult that I am intolerant to dairy; that’s another story.
I like to consider myself healthy these days. However, when it comes to sugar I still have to watch myself. The desserts I go for these days may be raw and organic but they are still full of hidden sugars!
My favourite sugar quest was to factor in a trip to a cafe to have organic dairy-free hot chocolate to feed my addiction. Everything in moderation for sure, but the cafe-trips realisation highlighted to me how I was sneakily feeding my sweet tooth!
So here are the three ways I’ve helped to curb my sweet tooth.

I was going to film myself doing this but found this link on the internet: Kirtan Kriya I also found this amazing Kirtan Kriya album which has different timings for days when you don’t have a full half an hour. This CD has 6, 12, 18 and 31-minute versions. The beauty of using this is you don’t need to do the timings as the album already does. Here are some affiliated links
