HEALTH: Splenda 365 Sweet Swaps gets you more Healthy One Swap at a Time #sweetswaps

Small, Easy Lifestyle changes can lead to big results over time...

Disclosure͗ : This post is part of the SPLENDA® 365 Sweet Swaps™ Blogger Program by McNeil Nutritionals, LLC and The Motherhood, who sent me products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

I have always tried to live a healthy life that revolved around eating right and exercising. But when I finally hit the big 5-0, menopause brought on some physical and mental changes that have thrown my healthy lifestyle habits for a loop.

Even though I get up every Monday - Friday at 5:30am to ride my stationary bike and also walk 2 miles during my lunch break 3-4 times a week, I still struggle daily with making good food choices. I have always loved chocolate, but now I really, really love chocolate. And anything chocolaty and sugary somehow just tends to make it into my mouth before I can resist.

Experts recommend that women consume no more than 6 tsp. of added sugar daily, but I know that I consume much more than that since I tend to crave sugary sweets all during my day.

So I was very happy to discover the Splenda 365 sweet Swaps website where I found tons of advise on how to save calories by swapping out some of the regular sugar in my diet for zero calorie Splenda products.

Splenda makes lots of zero calorie products for baking and more...
I found out that Splenda makes everything I need to swap added sugar and get creative in the kitchen, including -

- Splenda No Calorie Sweetener Packets
- Splenda No Calorie Sweetener Granulated
- Splenda No Calorie Sweetener Flavors for Coffee
- Splenda Sugar Blend
- Splenda Brown Sugar Blend

I plan to try out this recipe made with zero calorie Splenda instead of sugar
While I was reading the Splenda 365 Sweet Swaps tips, recipes and guidelines, I found a recipe that I just have to try for cupcakes with chocolate frosting made with Splenda No Calorie Sweetener.  I cannot wait to try out the recipe to see if I can get the sweet taste that I love (and crave) but without all the calories.
