Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.

So you pick up a little carton of fruit yogurt thinking it's a healthy choice.
Yeow! Have you ever checked the ingredient list?
I don't have a huge craving for sweets, but ONE of us does. *grin*
"We" are learning to rein in "our" sweet tooth ~ little by little. I'm not crazy about the use of artificial sweeteners, but recognize that a product such as Splenda can help with the changes we are making.
If you are trying to cut back on sugar consumption and have a difficult time finding low-sugar, unsweetened fruit yogurt ~ I have a tip which is a good substitute for sugar-loaded fruit yogurts.
I always have a large carton of Non-Fat Plain Yogurt on hand (preferably organic, with no artificial additives). While I don't mind having my fruit with the plain yogurt ~ some can't tolerate the tart flavor. You can sweeten it up a bit to make it more palatable by stirring a little unsweetened Fruit Spread, or Sugar Free Preserves into the plain yogurt to taste. It's a fairly healthy alternative to other commercial fruit yogurts.
Some mornings I make Yogurt-Fresh Fruit Parfaits like this one, for a treat...
These are also delicious for a light lunch, or a healthful dessert for a special occasion. :)
We'll gradually tame the sweet tooth, and maybe one day we can skip the sugar-free stuff altogether. That's my hope. :)
