This post is part of the SPLENDA® 365 SWEET SWAPS ™ blogger program by McNeil Nutritionals, LLC. and The Motherhood, who sent me products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are my own, and I hope you enjoy them.
There is no denying how much I love my sugar. I use it when baking and in my drinks. It is almost an automatic thing when I am adding it. I know I need to use less sugar. I even want to use less. I have tried to do it cold turkey and cut out all sugar but that never worked!
That is the main reason being part of the SPLENDA® 365 SWEET SWAPS ™ blogger program is a good fit for me. I could use a little help cutting my sugar intake. Did you know that experts recommend that women consume less than 6 teaspoons of added sugar daily, but the average American eats 22.2 teaspoons! That is a really big difference!
This time I grabbed a Splenda packet instead. 1 packet equals 1 tablespoon. I was a little scared to try it! What if it had that weird sweetener after taste I have experienced with other products?
My daughter Kayla did the sweet swap with me and we liked it! It tastes different from sugar but is still sweet. The best part is no calories! I did not feel like I was missing something while eating.
I really like the idea of making small changes and swapping out my food choices. It is not as overwhelming as it would be if I tried to do a big overhaul of my diet. I am looking forward to trying more tips and there are a lot to choose from over at the 365 Sweet Swaps Tumblr page.
