I’ve been making an effort to eat healthier foods over the last couple of months, but there has been one sweet that’s been harder to give up than others. It’s my sweet tea.
After giving up soda several years ago, I made the switch to water exclusively so that I could be healthier. So it’s a surprise to me that somehow, my once-in-a-while treat has now become a common drink.
In fact, despite experts recommending that women consume no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar per day, the average American eats 22 teaspoons daily. That’s crazy!
Most of us just don’t realize how much sugar is in our favorite foods and beverages. Things like fruit flavored yogurt, salad dressings, cereals and lattes can contain a huge amount of sugar.
So SPLENDA® has come up with lots of great ways for us to make a healthier change – Sweet Swaps.
Sweet Swaps are 365 different ways to make healthier changes. Try a new change each day of the year to help cut the sugar and make better choices for foods and drinks.
One of my biggest swaps will be from Sweet Tea with sugar to SPLENDA® Sugar Blend and then to SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener Granulated. It will be a good way for me to get used to a little change at a time and still be able to enjoy my favorite drink.
