  • JulieLa Does coffee count if it has flavored creamer in it?
Any tips for full or half pass check-ins? I had a salad with the only sugar I could find was in the dressing (listed eighth).

  • DietID_TeamDietitians If you have just a little added sugar, such as that found in salad dressing, that would qualify as half a pass for sure. A great no added sugar salad dressing is this shallot dijon dressing by...
  • ingalls Thank you!

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?

Quinoa, lentils, avocado, roasted beats, roasted chickpeas, with tomato-cucumber salsa. This delicious dinner came together in about 25 minutes, and it’s balanced and full of veggies!
  • annefood Agreed- I keep whole grains and beans in the pantry and when I don’t know what to do for dinner I just throw them in a bowl with a veggie or lettuce and some dressing.
  • msantiago I never thought of raising beets! I love beets any which way . Think I’ll try that! 🤔
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Yes! Super easy to roast. Just oil, salt, pepper and straight into the oven.

  • DietID_TeamDietitians Hi @Ellen89 - you can only do one challenge at a time. We designed it this way because studies show you'll be more successful at building a good habit if you focus on one thing, vs. trying to...

Is Simply Lite Low Carb Dark Chocolate Sugar-Free 50% Cacao okay for this challenge? Is it healthy or best to just skip it?
6yr
  • DietID_TeamDietitians I would suggest skipping it because one of its main ingredients is Maltitol, a sugar alcohol or sweetener. Though it is not as sweet as sugar, it’s still an artificial sweetener, which you should...
  • AlexB Okay cool! Thank you. I just usually have one square of super dark chocolate.
  • annefood It's best to just skip it. Sugar alternatives tend to cause gastrointestinal issues when eaten in excess. I eat 100% cacao chips with dried fruit for a little dessert sometimes. No added sugar or...

Any thoughts on stevia or alternatives if the need arises?
6yr
  • annefood Great question @ingalls ! Pure stevia extract is the only "sweetener" that is allowed during the Avoid Added Sugar Challenge. Make sure that it is only stevia leaf though, as stevia products (such...
  • ingalls Thanks for the stevia info! Outside of that, avoid all the other artificial alternatives you'd find in typical "diet" and "zero calorie" stuff?
  • annefood You’re welcome! Yes exactly, avoid all artificial alternatives.
