The healthy swap: Diorio recommends trying aloe vera juice. Aloe vera juice is naturally sugar free and may help support digestive and immune health. Plus, when you drink it, you’ll be sipping important vitamins and over twenty different minerals including chromium, magnesium, potassium and iron.
Just make sure you’re not falling into the same trap here by buying versions with sugars and syrups added. “If the taste isn’t your favorite, mix [aloe vera juice] with a splash of 100% pineapple or cranberry juice for a touch of sweetness,” Diorio says.
So WTF is safe to eat?
If you’re suspicious of everything, you have a pretty good reason to be. To avoid foods with sneaky amounts of hidden sugar, it’s best to minimize the amount of processed foods you consume. Or you could subsist entirely on overnight oats, fruit, and olive oil dressing over kale salads. Whatever you do, try to avoid drinking soda for breakfast.
