Is your sweet tooth getting the best of your commitment to eating healthy? The Doctors share 3 food swaps that can help you cut down on the amount of sugar you're eating while still giving you something sweet.
After kicking his sugar habit while partaking on the Doctors' #DropTheSugarChallenge, producer Justin discovered some easy food swaps and he's sharing what helped him eliminated excess processed sugars from his life.
Swap flavored coffee creamers for plant-based creamers: Our producer realized he was consuming way too much sugar with his coffee and switched to unsweetened plant-based creamers, like almond, oat, coconut or soy, instead of this sugar-filled traditional creamers.
Swap candy with nuts for lightly sweetened nuts: Justin loves candy and tried to eat candy with nuts, but realized this was just sugar with a touch of nuts. Instead, he discovered flavored nuts, like almonds which are lightly coated with flavors like chocolate. He says these a much healthier and really cut down on his sugar intake.
Swap ice cream for frozen fruit: Like most of us, Justin loved a bowl of ice cream, but didn't love the amount of sugar he was eating when indulging. In order to still enjoy something sweet, he discovered eating frozen fruit, suggesting freezing grapes, blueberries and bananas. To make it creamier, consider adding Greek yogurt to the frozen fruit.
