SplendaThere are simple way to make healthier changes in your everyday diet and swapping out real sugar is one of them. As a matter of fact there are 365 ways to swap our real sugar with Splenda. I pretty much use Splenda in my house for cooking.  I love their individual packets because I can take them with me when I eat my oatmeal or grapefruit at work.  If you are looking for ways to swap out sugar check out http://www.365sweetswaps.com/.

Did you know the average person consumes 22 teaspoons of sugar a day. Yuck. You need to keep a watchful eye on hidden items like yogurt, salad dressing, and my favorite lattes.  Speaking of lattes, here is a great recipe from 365 Sweet Swaps to help get you started. It’s good one too, I have tried it.
