In my younger years, I never cared too much about sweets. In fact, one of my best friends growing up had a major sweet tooth and I never understood it until I got pregnant. Not only did my pregnancy give me my first daughter, but it also gave me a sweet tooth! For the past 11 years, I have craved sweets after lunch and dinner. Causing me to bum sweets off my coworkers when my sweet tooth kicked in, usually in the afternoon.
Earlier this year, in March, I went to the local farmer's market to restock my fermented veggies. I noticed the beet kvass and inquired about it. The representative at Garden Goddess Ferments shared how kvass helped kill her sweet tooth. She explained how kvass is a blood tonic, helping create red blood cells and alkalizing the blood, not to mentioned it's fermented so it's full of probiotic goodness! After hearing how it helped her, I decided to give it a try.
For the next few weeks, I took a shot in the morning and one in the afternoon. I would say within 2-3 days, I started to notice a difference. We were on vacation, the first week of taking kvass, and I had no desire to indulge in sweets at Disneyland. Say what?!
Fast forward to four months later, my sweet tooth is still dead. I do not crave sweets. I have no interest in sweets. And if I happen to take a bite of a dessert, I usually find that it's too sweet to eat. I shared this experience with some coworkers. They gave it a try and had the same results!
Who knows. It might be in our heads but it worked for us. If you are looking to kill your sweet tooth, you may want to give beet kvass a try and see if it works for you. You can make it or find it from a local company like I did.
May the kvass be with you.
