19: Cutting Back on Sugar with Laura Hoover, MPH, RD
Sugar. It's everywhere in our food supply, and we eat a lot of it. Kids crave it, and parents struggle to keep it in check. Did you know that the average U.S. child consumes almost 80 grams (20 teaspoons) of added sugar per day? That's nearly half a cup! On this week's podcast, dietitian and mom, Laura Chalela Hoover, MPH, RD joins me to talk about her new book, Mom's Sugar Solution, share tips and tricks for taming your family's sweet tooth, and serve up recipes for kids' favorite foods made with less sugar. Wait till you hear about her Raspberry Chia Mini Muffins made with honey and her Ruby Red Soda made with no added sugar. You won’t believe how sweet and delicious food can be without the added sugar! I personally have a sweet tooth, so I was super excited to have Laura on the show to share her best tips and tricks to slashing sugar. Unfortunately for all of us humans, fighting sugar cravings is a bit like fighting our biology. Humans are hard-wired to crave sugar from birth, so Laura says the best way to tackle it is to wean off slowly. But Laura's book isn't entirely sugar free. She provides lower-sugar alternatives to kid favorites ... including dessert. Yes, we can all have our cake and eat a portion of it too! Stick around for a chance to win a free copy of Mom’s Sugar Solution as well as freebies and discounts from Laura to the Liz’s Healthy Table community. Are you hungry for new ways to tackle your sweet tooth? I am! You can read the full show notes and access all the links and resources at www.lizshealthytable.com
