OK, fam, we're doing this. If your plan is to cut down on sugar this year (or month... baby steps), we’re right there with you. And while it’s definitely going to be tough, we’ve got some recipes to help you out, starting with breakfast. The most important meal of the day can quickly turn into a sugar-fest if you’re not careful, but a few healthy swaps mean you can keep enjoying favorites like pancakes, muffins, and smoothie bowls. Or you can switch to the savory side with proteins like eggs, salmon, and sausage. Either way, you so got this.
Pudding... on a low-sugar diet? Sure thing! When it’s made with chia seeds, nut milk, a touch of maple syrup, vanilla extract, and chai spice mix, you have low-sugar gold.
Since you’ve made the commitment to go low-sugar, we recommend tossing the Aunt Jemima and splurging on some high-quality maple syrup (and watching your portions... you can even cut the one-tablespoon serving they suggest in half because a little goes a long way). You can also sweeten with fruit to really go low on the sweet stuff.
This frittata might just make you team savory and is an easy way to get in some greens at breakfast. All you need are eggs, salmon, peas, broccoli, and salt and pepper. Consider it a way-healthier version of your beloved bagel with lox.
