How To Lower Your Sugar Intake

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:

Choose Fruit

When looking for something sweet to satisfy your sweet tooth choose fruit instead of a sugar filled dessert. 

Check Labels

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.

Drink Water

Switch out sodas and sweetened beverages such as lemonade and tea for water.   A 12 ounce can of soda has 39 grams of sugar.

Avoid Sauces

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 Cereal

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.  

Too much sugar intake can greatly impact your disease risk.  With just a few small changes to your daily routine; it can make a world of difference when it comes to your health.


Controlling your daily caloric intake, reducing your sugar or sodium levels and maintaining a healthy weight are all things that our chef prepared meals can help you with as 2019 begins.

Choose from 7 menus that include Low Carb, Paleo, Keto, Gluten Free and more. If you place your order before our 9am, Friday cutoff time, you’ll get 10% off your first order when you use promo code LOWSUGAR10 at checkout.

5 Quick & Easy Low Carb Swaps

5 Quick & Easy Low Carb Swaps

By: Julia Lott, MS, RD, LD, Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine

Are you trying to eat less carbs?  It can sometimes be tough trying to come up with healthy alternatives for foods with a high carb count.  Here’s a list of some great substitutes!  And trust me…you won’t even miss the carbs.

Spaghetti Squash or Zucchini Noodles

Spaghetti squash is a great substitute for pasta.  1 cup of spaghetti squash has 30 calories and 7 grams of carbs compared to pasta that has 220 calories and 43 grams of carbs.  This substitute is not only low in carbs, but it’s also loaded with vitamins.  It’s a great source of fiber, Vitamin C, and B Vitamins.

Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower rice can be substituted for regular rice. The carbs in a cup of brown rice are 46 grams compared to only 5 grams per cup for cauliflower rice.  To make it, all you need is a food processor to blend it until you reach the desired size; then throw it in the microwave for about 7 minutes.  And if you’re not in the mood to actually make it, cauliflower rice is sold in the freezer section of most grocery stores.    

Eggplant Slices

Lasagna is so delicious, but it can be really high in carbs coming from the lasagna sheets.  A great way to get the same delicious flavor without the calories and carbs is by switching it out with sliced eggplant instead.  This easy swap can decrease the carbs by about 25 grams per serving!

Cauliflower Pizza Dough

Everybody loves pizza, but I’m not a fan of all the carbs that come with it.  A great way to get the same flavor without the carbs is to use cauliflower pizza dough.   Most stores sell cauliflower pizza dough in the freezer section if you don’t have time to make it.  However, if you are feeling brave there are several recipes online that aren’t too complicated.  Best of all, cauliflower is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Lettuce

Tacos and burgers are delicious but tortilla shells and buns can add a ton of calories and carbs to your meal.  Substituting lettuce in place of the tortilla or bun is an excellent swap without drastically changing the taste.  An 8” tortilla or hamburger bun has about 20 grams of carbs each compared to romaine lettuce which only has 2 grams of carb per cup.  Romaine lettuce is packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin K and folate. 

Try out these easy low carb swaps without sacrificing flavor and when you do, let us know what you think or leave a comment with a few suggestions of your own. If you still need a little extra help reducing your carbs, try Fresh ‘N Fit’s low carb or Keto menus. If you use promo code LOWCARBNOW at checkout, you’ll get $20 off your first order.

Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine Nutrition Coaches: Healthy Eating Options For A Busy Schedule

How do you choose healthy meals when you are out to lunch that won’t break the bank? One way to is to choose a restaurant that has lunch specials. Restaurants know that you are on your lunch break and you need something quickly, healthy and low cost. Also, choose half portions when going out to eat, to keep the calories under control. Lastly, always incorporate a vegetable in your lunch meal.

If going out to lunch is not an option for you, and you bring a lunch to work; is it better to do your own meal prep or someone to do it for you? Meal prepping is a great way to stay healthy and save money. Additionally, it gives you full control of accomplishing your nutrition goals. Planning your meals for the week is a vital part of meeting your health goals.

In order to meal prep, several hours are needed on a weekend day to pre-cook all ingredients, such as chicken, turkey, vegetables, brown rice, and pasta. A great way to store your meals for the week is in plastic compartment bento lunch trays. Then you are good to go, every morning you grab your meal for the day. Planning ahead helps you achieve a healthy balance on your menu choices. This saves you time, money, and stress.

However, the only drawback is that meal prep can be time consuming. Not everyone has that kind of time on the weekend. So instead of spending your precious time on the weekend planning and cooking, you only have to spend a short time online ordering your next week’s meals.

At Fresh n’ Fit Cuisine, we have over 300 healthy meals that are available as Individual Meal Plans, with the option to customize, or as Single Meals. Our meal plan menus include PaleoLow CarbVegetarianGluten Free and our traditional Healthy Mix. Our single meals include selections from those same menus as well as Keto and hCG options.
