Sugar and corn syrup add calories to foods, but have no nutritional value. Buy syrup- and sugar-free varieties of fruit spread, applesauce, juice, and canned fruits. After all, fruit is naturally sweet!
Keep the tradition and boost the nutrition by making substitutions: whole grain flour, less salt, heart-healthy fats, half the sugar, and beans instead of meat. Your taste buds won’t know the difference!
Savoring your food in a calm environment helps you tune-in to your body’s signals. You’re less likely to overeat and experience problems like acid reflux when you take your time to really enjoy the moment.
