We’ve put together a list of grocery items that have no added sugar or artificial sweeteners. These items are merely suggestions.
ALWAYS, ALWAYS read the ingredient labels! Keep in mind that most boxed foods will have some type of added sugar or sweetener. Reading labels may sound time consuming, but after a few trips to the grocery store, you’ll be scanning labels in a matter of seconds. It’s a good habit!
Remember, almost all foods have naturally occurring sugar, it’s added sugar and sweeteners we’re avoiding with this challenge.
THE SWEETEST CHALLENGE is just a click away!
