Eating lower carbs tends to leave me with a sweet tooth. In order to curb the craving I will often try drinking more water first, but since we know that doesn't always work, try eating 1/4-1/2 cup of pumpkin. We keep this in our house so its accessible all the time. Try not to be scared of carbohydrates. Especially the ones found in nutritious veggies like pumpkin. A 1/2 cup only contains about 9 carbs with 5 grams of fiber. I will not be able to give you net carbs for all recipes (or even how many carbs are in most), but this 1/2 cup serving will yield about 4 net carbs.

1/2 Cup Plain Canned Pumpkin (Do NOT use pumpkin pie mix)
1/2 Packet of Truvia (I try to stay away from some other artificial sweeteners)
A pinch of ground cinnamon

Stir and enjoy
