Tips and Tricks for Low-Sugar Baking and Cooking Throughout the Holidays

Here’s how to keep the sweetness in your favorite treats, without consuming a whole lot of sugar. The holiday season is the time to dig into all of your favorite cookies, pies, cakes, rolls, and all other forms of sweet treats (or savory snacks). But after biting into a few too many gingerbread people or enjoying a couple of candy canes, all that sugar can leave you feeling pretty sluggish – and, overall, worse for the wear. Instead of skipping out on cookies, pies, and all of those sweetened coffees you love during the holiday season, make your baked goods – and even your home-cooked meals – lower in sugar. With the following expert tips from nutritionists and registered dietitians, you can reduce your overall sugar intake without feeling like you’re giving anything up.
