Our favorite low-sugar recipes that do not sacrifice flavor
Although sugar often gets a bad rap, in its natural state, sugar is a relatively harmless carbohydrate that our bodies need to function. At Cooking Light, we believe that all foods can fit, so we recommend moderation when it comes to sugar-laden foods. But to keep you on track with your healthy eating lifestyle, we offer a wide variety of low-sugar recipes, from breakfast treats and main dishes to snacks and desserts. None of the recipes have more than 10 grams of added sugar per serving - and most have less. Plus, these recipes come with the bonus of being packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber. In our Test Kitchens, we've come up with ways to create satisfying recipes using less sugar, natural sugars, and alternative sweeteners, all designed to help you reduce added sugars in your diet and improve your health.
