I am a sugar addict. I love sweets. More specifically, I am a chocolate-anything addict. As many times as I’ve tried to cut back on sugar intake either to lose weight or just be healthier, I always fail.
So what can we do to satisfy that sweet tooth in a healthier way? Although I haven’t had success in cutting sugar completely out of my diet (and let’s face it, what kind of life would that be?), I have made some significant improvements in the types of sugars that satisfy my sweet tooth. There are plenty of nutrient-rich options out there. Yes, they can be more expensive than refined sugar (which really doesn’t make sense, since more labor has to go into processing them!), but that only helps me out in reducing my sugar intake!
Fruits and veggies – Yep! They have natural forms of sugar in them. You can’t go wrong there.
