Let’s face it. It’s easy to consume far too much sugar every day. You get up in the morning and have a cup of coffee, but of course, you have to add a couple of teaspoons of sugar. And it’s easy to keep eating it throughout the day. There’s sugar in breakfast cereal, sugar in bread, and even sugar in salad dressing.
But it’s no secret that overconsumption of sugar can lead to serious health issues. Obesity, diabetes, gout, and heart disease are all connected to poor diet. That’s not even to mention the dental issues that can arise from eating too much sugar.
The American Heart Association recommends for men to only eat a maximum of 37 grams of added sugar a day. Women, meanwhile, should stick to 25 grams. So how do we cut out our excessive sugar consumption?
The good news — there are more options than you think. Cutting out sugar doesn’t mean a lifetime of bland, boring food. Even if you have a sweet tooth, you have a lot of choices for a sweet treat. Here are 75 ways to sweeten food without using sugar.
