6 Yummy Alternatives For Sugar! Plus A Bonus Tip!

1. Agave Nectar

The Aztecs used agave thousands of years ago and praised this syrup as a gift from the gods. A derivative of the same plant as tequila, this golden sweetener tastes similar to honey and is perfect in hot or iced tea. But be sure to use in moderation—agave’s high fructose content can sometimes cross it in to the dangerous food zone!

2. Applesauce

Instead of a half-cup white sugar in a batch of oatmeal cookies, swap in an equal amount of applesauce! The natural sweetness from a Golden Delicious or Fuji apple is perfect in an after-dinner treat. Purchase the “no sugar-added” applesauce, or make a fresh batch at home!

3. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

For a warm winter treat, mix some unsweetened cocoa powder in a glass of hot water or skim milk. It’ll satisfy that sweet tooth without all the extra sugar the sweetened version includes. Add a splash of vanilla extract for extra flavor!

4. Coconut Sugar

Get a little tropical and use coconut sugar in a fruit smoothie. Made from the sap of coconut flowers, this natural sugar comes in block, paste, or granulated form. Plus, it’s loaded with potassium which helps keep our bones strong!

5. Brown Rice Syrup

Brown rice syrup comes from (you guessed it!) brown rice. More nutritious than its high-fructose alternative, this buttery and nutty flavored syrup is perfect in granola bars and baked breads.

6. Puréed Banana

In the next loaf of banana bread, try using extra-ripe bananas and eliminating the sugar. The fruit naturally becomes sweeter as it ripens, so there’s no need for extra sugar.

Bonus Alternative: Lemon

If you’re a tea drinker like myself, squeezing the juice of half a lemon into your cup of tea can be helpful when cutting back on sugar! Lemon not only improves hydration, has vitamin C, and helps with weight loss, it also helps with digestion and freshens your breath!

But be careful to use lemon in moderation because of its acidity. So instead of using honey or sugar to flavor your tea, add some lemon juice to get all the great benefits!

The STRANGEST Pizza Toppings You Can Order In The US!


>>Severus Grape Pizza

Location: BROOKLYN, NY

Vinnie’s Pizzeria

This Brooklyn pizza shop has a menu with interesting topping options from kale to ground beef to avocados! The Severus Grape pizza is served with grapes, gorgonzola, roasted red peppers, and a little drizzle of honey! 

>>Bananas; The Montrose Pie


Red’s Pizza

Red’s Pizzeria is owned by two Swedish brothers who wanted to introduce Americans to Swedish style pies. These brothers brought the tradition of adding pizza pies topped with bananas to their menu. Some say it reminds them of Hawaiian pizza! 


>>Tuna Fish Salad; The Tonno Pizza


The Tonno pizza was served during Lent on Fridays for Roman Catholics who can’t eat meat during this time. But this has become a fan favorite for their customers! The tuna salad is made in house, then spread onto the baked pizza crust, almost serving as the sauce. Then shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, and a special “secret” dressing and seasonings are spread over top and is served cold! 

>>Crabs & Old Bay; Crab Pie

Location: BALTIMORE, MD 

Matthew’s Pizza

Matthew’s Pizza opened their first pizzeria in Baltimore so they found it fitting to pay tribute to Maryland’s most famous export: crab! The crab pie is topped with crab meat smothered in carmalized onions, with mozzarella and reggianito cheese! Then it’s finished off with Old Bay seasoning! 

>>Lobster; Whole Lobster Pizza

Location: GRAMERCY, NY


Florian offers an entire 1 lb lobster (including the head) on top of thin crust, mozzarella cheese, and burrata. The presentation is pretty impressive and it cost $32, perfect choice for date night! 


>>Thanksgiving Dinner; Thanksgiving Pizza


Fellini Pizzeria

This creative pizza makes its debut on a single day before Thanksgiving each year, but get this, it’s only available for 24 hours! On this pizza there is slow roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and cranberry sauce on the side! Fellini takes orders weeks in advance. They can’t offer Thanksgiving  Dinner pie as a regular menu item because it takes them about a week of prep work to prepare for a single day of orders! 

>>Frito Pie; Chili Cheese Frito

Location: MILWAUKEE, WI & Other Locations

Ian’s Pizza

Ian’s pizza started as a by-the-slice-pizzeria serving hungry college kids from University of Wisconsin. Their monthly specials always had the weirdest options including the Frito pie! They make their own beef chili in house, spread that over the pie, topped with onions, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and of course crunchy Fritos! 

Would you dare try one of these strange pizza slices?! I definitely would! =)

Which one would you try?!

Yummy Yogurt Bowl!

My yummy breakfast today consisted of Stonyfield Organic Low Fat Strawbery Yogurt, sliced banana, grounded flaxseeds, granola, cinnamon, and honey!

I normally like to eat Greek yogurt but Whole Foods didn’t have the kind that I wanted to get! Oh well, at least that gave me a chance to try out a new yogurt and I actually really like it! Yum!

Thumbs up to yogurt for breakfast!
