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.
Sometimes I just CRAVE sweets. Especially chocolate!! Did you know that experts recommend women consume no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day, yet the average American eats 22 teaspoons daily! I know there are days I blow that out of the water!
Most of us vastly underestimate the amount of sugar we eat because the sweet stuff is hiding in some of our favorite foods and beverages, like vanilla lattes, fruit flavored yogurt, salad dressing and cereal. Once we realize
where the sugar is hiding, we can come up with ways to eliminate the excess sugar from our diets!
Throughout 2014, SPLENDA® Brand is dishing out 365 ways to swap sugar for SPLENDA® Sweetener Products
to save calories all year long! The Motherhood is teaming up with SPLENDA® Sweetener Products for this fun
