Experts recommend women consume no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day, yet the average American eats 22 teaspoons daily.
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.
I've been recently trying to swap sugar for splenda myself. In fact I swapped splenda for the sugar in these blueberry muffins I am popping in my oven right now.
