Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth without All the Sugar

Many of us love our sweets, but there are a lot of ways to satisfy your palate without going overboard. Here are three easy ways to get a sweet treat without all the sugar:

  • Go for dark chocolate. In general, the higher the percentage of cocoa, the less the sugar content. In addition, dark chocolate is a source of antioxidants and some research suggests it may help lower blood pressure and protect your heart.
  • Don't drink your sugar. Sweetened coffee drinks and sodas can contain as much sugar as the dessert tray. Try no-sugar or low-sugar beverages instead.
  • Go for naturally sweet options. Enjoy the sweetness of fresh fruit or look for recipes for baked goods with refined sugar substitutes, such as apple sauce or fruit juice.

Eating healthy doesn't mean you can't enjoy your favorite sweets in moderation. Just watch your portion sizes and enjoy small indulgences.
