I talk a lot about nutrition on the blog and overall, I eat pretty healthy. One of my weaknesses is sugar. The new 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans just came out. Overall, a lot of the recommendations are the same as previously but a new recommendation that they are really focusing on is that sugar should be 10 percent or less of your daily calories.

This does not include sugar that is naturally in foods such as fruits or dairy products. It includes added sugars such as white sugar, brown sugar, syrup, honey, agave, etc. Added sugar is in lots of things that you would not even expect it in such as tomato sauce or in BBQ sauce.

This year, I am going to try (I said try) to limit my sugar. My family jokes that I have the biggest sweet tooth in the family and it is true. I love dessert. The good thing is, my sweet tooth can often be satisfied by a nutritious smoothie, fruit or a Greek yogurt.

Over the summer, I had made a green smoothie bowl and really fell in love with the smoothie bowl idea. They are so easy and I love having the texture of different foods in my smoothie. They can be made filling enough to eat for an entire meal and can be customized to your liking. I made this smoothie with a variety of frozen tropical fruit that came in a mix which is available year round and was inexpensive.
