Now you are probably not surprised to see this spice on this list. This is a super popular spice that can kick a sugar craving straight to the curb!

5. Cardamom

Light and a little sweet, cardamom is another popular herb. Some people think of cardamom as cinnamons slightly spicier sister. It has a delightful lemony-vanilla smell to it that no one will forget. This is a really versatile herb that you can add to many other foods to kill that sugar craving. Add some to your smoothie, yogurt, or oatmeal. Super yum!

Another alternative, although it is not an herb is to try a little organic stevia. Adding some stevia to that nutmeg or cinnamon and putting it on your morning oatmeal just might give you the sweet taste your crave without causing you physical harm.
