New year, New You, part 4

Top 10 Healthy Resolutions
#4 Limit your intake of sugar.

Focus on homemade "from scratch" meals and avoid most processed foods as sugar is often hidden in the ingredients. In addition to the obvious sources like cane sugar, beet sugar, corn syrup, honey, maple syrup and agave, be aware of other glucose spiking ingredients like dates, raisins and most dried fruits. You can substitute for natural low glycemic sweeteners like stevia, xylitol and erythritol.

Favorite lower glycemic fruits include: grapefruit, cherries, apples, pears and plums.
