Is there an alternative to gum? Or gum that doesn’t have any added sugar or substitutes? I’m really missing that afternoon minty freshness.

  • annefood I’m afraid I don’t know of any. But I can tell you that I used to be an avid gum chewer and I have since kicked the habit. It was hard at first but now I don’t miss it at all! Not a direct...

  • DietID_TeamDietitians My favorite no added sugar to-go snacks: larabars, mary’s Seed crackers with hummus, grapes, mixed nuts, and for a treat - almond butter-stuffed dates (2 of them will fill you up).

I normally eat ezekiel bread and noticed one of the main ingredients is honey. Are there any breads without added sugar?
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Great question @AlexB! The Ezekiel low sodium and sesame sprouted breads have 0g added sugar. They have some malted barley, but it must be very little if it didn't register on the nutrition count....
  • AlexB Oh great! Thank you! I go to the RO market a lot so that’s perfect.
  • teachwitme Wow. Buy me some

I’m a big morning coffee drinker. I use 2 tsp of International Delight coffee creamer and a tbsp of whipped cream. Do I have to ditch this?

  • DietID_TeamDietitians Did you always stop at the same fast food restaurants and around the same time of day? If so, it's great to celebrate the fact that you've changed that habit so far. If you're finding that you're...
