Ah, sugar. So good, but so bad.
And at the end of the day, it's generally a much better idea to find a way to avoid it rather than keep shoveling into your ever-so-delicate system.
But we know it can be very, very addicting, and equally difficult to avoid.
So we at Zaffrus, ever so passionate as we are about making the world a healthier place, put together a list of three solid ways to keep the sugar away from your mouth (and just away from you generally, to be honest).
According to some nutritionists, research shows that gum can help you control your food impulses.
So next time that cookie is tempting you, and sitting right next to that stick of spearmint, think about the consequences here, and opt for the spearmint.
Make smart swaps!
Prevention suggests a rather counterintuitive but powerful tactic for avoiding sugar on a day-to-day basis.
Swap out your flavored yogurt from your full-fat plain yogurt.
Flavored yogurt doesn't have the nutritional value that you'll find in the full fat stuff. And fat really isn't as bad for you as many make it out to be. In fact, it can be quite good for you! But everything in moderation ...
That's of course just one of many smart swaps you can make in the kitchen each day.
You can also drink water or tea instead of juice or soda.
And try balsamic vinegar on your salad instead of dressings.
Balance your sugar budget like you balance your checkbook.
Know exactly how much sugar you can have in a day, and stick to it! It can only lead to good things.
One great addition to any low sugar meal is saffron.
The world’s most magical spice is a great way to bring incredible benefits to your food through plants.
You can buy saffron online easily here at Zaffrus.
