Healthy Tips for Sweet Success

Follow these guidelines to help reduce your cravings for sweets and simple carbs and add health to your life everyday.

#1. Eat protein and healthy fats at every meal, especially breakfast! See our favorite breakfast recipe: The Usual Breakfast.

#2. Eat a startchy veggie at dinner and lunch instead of bread, pasta, or rice.  Examples: beets, sweet potatoes, turnips, carrots, winter squash, spaghetti squash, rutabagas, radishes, celery root, and Jerusalem artichokes.  See our Roasted Spring Beets Recipe for ideas.

#3. Make your own sauces, condiments and dressings.  Then you can use natural sweeteners like maple syrup, honey, stevia, and brown rice syrup in the quantity you desire, which quite possibly is less than the amount in the store-bought version.

Here is a long time favorite recipe of our friends and family never before released in our newsletter: Maple Syrup Dressing!
