Too much sugar can be harmful to our health. Sugar has been linked to cancer, diabetes, and heart health and unwanted weight gain. Here are a few simple ways to reduce your daily sugar intake for your health:
When looking for something sweet to satisfy your sweet tooth choose fruit instead of a sugar filled dessert.
Always check nutrition labels when grocery shopping. All nutrition labels list how many grams of sugar are in a serving. Remember that some foods have naturally occurring sugar such as in dairy and fruit products. The ingredient list will show if there is any added sugar in a product.
Switch out sodas and sweetened beverages such as lemonade and tea for water. A 12 ounce can of soda has 39 grams of sugar.
Sauces such as teriyaki and ketchup can have lots of added sugar. You can instead choose to flavor food with herbs and spices without adding any sugar.
Breakfast cereals are loaded with added sugar. Always check the label when shopping for breakfast cereals. Oatmeal, yogurts, eggs, and avocado are great low sugar options for breakfast.
