Sugar-free yogurts that will keep you coming back for more

Cutting down on sugar is pretty sweet for your body. A low-sugar diet reduces the risk of diabetes and heart disease and ensures you won’t suffer a mid-day sugar crash. Unfortunately, there is too much added sugar in most American diets, making us prone to inflammation, weight gain, and type 2 diabetes in addition to cardiovascular risk.

A low sugar lifestyle can be a challenge if yogurt is part of your daily diet. Yogurt boasts a plethora of necessary nutrients including calcium, protein, and good-for-your-gut probiotics. The small containers are easy to tote anywhere, making this easy snack food a favorite of the on-the-go crowd.

Yogurt, despite its good reputation, can have double-digit grams of sugar. Dairy products, like cow’s milk and yogurt, have healthy natural sugars, so you don’t necessarily need to find a sugar-free brand. It is important, however, to find a container that doesn’t have any added sugar, so that you can reap its benefits without the not-so-sweet side effects. Ready for a change in your yogurt routine? These no-sugar-added yogurts are essential to morning, snack time, or even dessert routine.

Oikos Triple Zero Vanilla

True to its name, Oikos Triple Zero Vanilla Greek yogurt avoids added sugar, artificial sweeteners, and fat. This no-added-sugar yogurt also packs in 15 grams of protein (30 percent of the recommended daily value), which keeps you feeling fuller longer while also strengthening muscle tissue. The natural sugars in this Greek yogurt keep it lightly sweet, and the texture is perfectly creamy and dreamy.  While it doesn’t taste quite like vanilla ice cream, it is a lighter, healthier substitute. If you’re looking to liven it up a bit, consider adding some fresh berries, granola, or dark chocolate.

Siggi’s Raspberry & Apple Icelandic Yogurt

Greek yogurt is a popular super snack because it is full of probiotics, protein, and has a creamier texture than the traditional kind. But, some say Icelandic yogurt is even better. It’s also, tangy, creamy, and high in protein with a thicker texture. This results in a luxurious, dessert-like taste. Siggi’s is one of the most popular national brands. It contains four grams of total sugar, but none of which is added. Further, it also boasts 11 grams of muscle-boosting protein. The raspberry and apple combo is a little tart, a little sweet, and completely delicious. Like Greek yogurt, it has live cultures, like L. acidophilus, probiotics which promote gut health and aid in digestion.

Two Good Strawberry Yogurt

Fruit-on-the-bottom products are typically high in sugars because of the fruity syrups, so Two Good created an added-sugar-free alternative to your favorite brands. Instead of adding sweeteners, this brand uses a patent-pending, slow-straining batching process to remove most of the sugar that is naturally present in milk while it makes the yogurt. This Greek yogurt, is high in protein (12 grams), low in calories (80), and contains live cultures that keep your digestive system functioning well. The strawberry-flavored variety is a fan favorite, but Two Good also offers blueberry, lemon, mango hibiscus, raspberry, coconut, and many other yogurt flavors.

Maple Hill Organic Yogurt

Maple Hill’s organic added-sugar-free yogurt is a favorite of low-sugar and eco-conscious consumers. This brand uses milk from 100 percent grass-fed cows. Their free-range, grazing farming technique is applauded by animal rights activists and environmentalists alike. We love this thick, full-bodied, creamy, yogurt that is the perfect addition to your breakfast table, at-home snack bar, or dessert. What’s more, it contains 15 grams of protein per serving (30 percent of the daily recommended value) and promotes bone health with its high calcium content.

Sugar naturally occurs in dairy products like yogurt, so yogurt lovers often struggle to significantly cut down on sweets. Luckily, there are low-sugar options that allow you to enjoy your favorite food while keeping your health in mind. Check the nutrition label for no-sugar-added yogurts, and do your own research to discover what brands, flavors, and toppings work well for you.

What are microgreens? We take a closer look
what are microgreens a closeup of

Can small vegetable greens pack a punch for your health and tastebuds? That’s what chefs in California were betting on when they added microgreens to their menus in the 1980s.
What are microgreens? The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture says microgreens is technically a marketing term, and it refers to small green vegetables that come in many flavors, including spicy and sweet.
What are microgreens not? The term microgreens is often used interchangeably with sprouts or baby vegetables, but they are different.
People harvest sprouts after two to seven days. Microgreens are harvested one to three weeks after germination. By the time microgreens are harvested, their true leaves will have developed but not fully expanded.  They’re typically about one to three inches tall, making them smaller than baby greens.
Despite their size, microgreens boast health benefits, and there are multiple types to consider. Let’s grow your knowledge.

What are some of the most popular types of microgreens?
There are many types of microgreens to choose from when crafting a menu. You can grow them from hundreds of different kinds of seeds. Once they’re all grown up, microgreens boast a variety of flavors and textures, from sweet to spicy and from crunchy to soft. Some of the most common types include:

5 healthy tortilla alternatives for your low-carb lifestyle

Tortillas are a pantry staple: They’re easy, versatile, and typically keep for a pretty long time before becoming inedible. You can use them for sandwiches, tacos, and even cut them into triangles to make pita chips. However, as is often the case with carbs, not all tortillas are created equal.
Some aren’t that good for you — they’re full of empty carbs and calories that don’t fill you up, leaving you hungry not long after you've finished the meal. The good news is that there are also healthy tortillas out there, whether you're in the hard or soft-taco-loving crowd. If you’re looking to fill your body with nutritious food, this guide will help you make the best tortilla choices at the grocery store.

What makes a healthy tortilla
Tortillas are full of carbohydrates, and though carbs have gotten a bad rep over the years, they are essential. Carbs break down into the primary fuel source for your body: glucose. Glucose is particularly critical for your mind since your brain cannot store other types of fuel like fat or proteins.
There are two types of carbs, simple and complex. Simple carbs are found naturally in fruit but also in processed foods like white bread. Complex carbs, like those found in whole grains, break down slowly and are full of fiber that keeps your digestive system running and ensures you feel full and energetic for hours.
