Kick Your Sugar Habit

Posted by on May 8, 2012 in Active Living & Healthy Eating | 0 comments

Whether you have diabetes and must cut down your sugar intake out of necessity, or you’re just trying to eat healthier, there are simple changes you can make to cut the amount of sugar in your diet.

1. Make your own red sauce – many store-bought sauces for pizza and spaghetti add a surprising amount of sugar. Making your own by simmering canned, chopped tomatoes on the stove with herbs you like can significantly reduce the amount of sugar.

2. Move the candy jar – What can be a welcome sight to your office visitors can be an unnecessary temptation for you. One piece of candy can easily lead to two more. Removing the temptation entirely is the best thing to do.

3. Eat whole fruit – Trying to use fruit products like fruit leather and juice drinks can seem like a healthy option, but they still can’t hold a candle to eating a piece of real fruit. A serving of whole fruit can satisfy your craving and add other nutrients to your diet.

4. Make your own salad dressing – Bottle, store-bought dressings, like sauces, are high in sugar. Making your own gives you the power to control the ingredients and amounts.
