By | source:Here May 16th, 2021

We all love delicious and tasteful foods. Yet, the goal of eating healthy and living for a more extended period requires cutting back on sugar.  Sugar has its benefits, but for several reasons, it should be out of your diet. It can even show up in unexpected places like fruit and packaged goods, so remember to read the label when trying to reduce sugar in your life.

Here are some of the best ways to cut back on sugar and replace it with better options. 

Healthy Substitutes for Sugar in Meals

Below are perfect substitutes for sugar in your meals. 

Baking or Cooking 

Use unsweetened applesauce instead of sugar in your recipe. It is best to use zero calories sweeteners when cooking or baking. 

Dessert and Sweets

Completely remove sugar in your dessert by taking natural fruit juice, or the fruit itself. As long as it is natural, either in liquid, canned, or iced form, it’s the perfect option. 

Tea and Coffee 

Use Honey or Agave syrup instead of sugar in your tea and coffee. 


Take water instead of sweetened beverages. Flavored Sparkling water or 100% fruit juice is the best option. 

Snacks Mix

Prepare your mix without adding sugar. Use fruits, nuts, and seeds instead. 

Dressings and Sauces

Refrain from using sauce, salad dressing, tomato sauce, etc. Prepare the homemade version without adding sugar.
