less sugar!!

There may be many reasons why you may want to cut down on your sugar intake. Most of us could not cut out sugar from our diet, but we can work to use alternative to sugar. Once we make this change to use less sugar, we will start feeling so good. Here are a few different things to try as alternatives to sugar.

The first and simplest way is to cut down on sugar in your recipes. You can’t cut out the sugar altogether, but you can cut down about ¼ cup or so. On those old family recipes that you cannot bare to let go of. You can reduce the sugar yet maintain the recipe’s integrity.

Unsweetened applesauce can be used for at least half the sugar in any recipe.

Use unsweetened juices such as pineapple or apple. Remember when you use juices in the place of sugar, you have to use more flour or dry ingredient. So it is best to use a recipe from the internet or a cookbook that is designed for less sugar and using unsweetened juices.

Mashed bananas are another sweetener alternative to use in place of sugar.

Use fruit puree or fruit nectar in place of sugar.

Honey can be used in place of sugar. Our body uses honey much easier which mean that it will not sit and turn to fat. The one thing to remember about honey is that you will use less than sugar in your recipe.

Stevia is a natural plant product instead of sugar. To find Stevia in your area you may have to search, otherwise check online.
