I'm in the process of weaning myself away from...my infamous sweet tooth. I've been trying to come up with some alternative options to help me get through. I thought I would share the ones I've been enjoying and call out for any other suggestions.
I love sugar cereal. Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs, and Fruity Pebbles are some of my very favorites. All of these cereals have a very high sugar content and not very much nutritional value. Since most contain High Fructose Corn Syrup, I might as well drink Karo Syrup for breakfast instead. So- to help me get away from my sugar breakfast habit I have found a couple cold cereal alternatives.
Fiber One Frosted Shredded Wheat still has a some what of a high sugar content, but it also has a high fiber content which means I'm getting my sugar fix, but I'm actually obtaining some nutritional value. It has a small amount of protein too which I'm always in need of.
Multi-Grain Cheerios have a pretty low sugar content, but still taste sweet. They contain NO High Fructose Corn Syrup.
*Note: I'm not advocating these cereals as a completely balanced or healthy breakfast, I'm just suggesting that they help me get away from eating what I really want (a hearty bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch).
I actually really like drinking water, but sometimes I just need a little something sweet. As previously mentioned this is all about rehab for my sweet tooth. I find that when I want a treat after any given meal, I can drink Crystal Light and it helps me fight off that sweet craving.
