Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

We are in the midst of the official Holiday Season - the time between Halloween and New Year's, that includes Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve. Sweets and Treats are plentiful, and many of us eat way too much sugar than is good for us during this time. 

Are sugar substitutes a better healthy diet habit than sugar? 

Sugar Substitutions

Sugar Substitutes should be used in moderation. The Healthy Diet Habit would be to cut down your taste for sweet foods in general, rather than trying to eat chemically sweetened foods.

Kerry provides a great list of many of the different Sugar Substitutes on her Healthy Diet Habits website!
