7 Drinks In 7 Days – A Reduced Sugar ResolutionMy week ditching the fizz, and kicking off my reduced sugar resolution.

Resisting the urge to make a million half hearted resolutions, there’s one thing that I feel I have to ditch. Sugar.

I’ll be the first person to admit I don’t have great success at going cold turkey trying to give up cakes, biscuits, pastries, sweets, or those naughty, naughty fresh cinnamon doughnuts that melt in your mouth like fairy floss. For me, I feel it’s a more realistic goal to reduce and or replace, rather than rule out.

Instead of cutting things out of your diet altogether, substitute them for a healthier alternative. Having always been a lover of cranberry juice, and always having it in the pantry, Ocean Spray now has 2 new low sugar cranberry drinks with only 10 calories per serve.

Here’s my week ditching the fizz, and kicking off my reduced sugar resolution:
