The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends limiting added sugar intake to 25 grams per day, or approximately 6 teaspoons.

Unsure what that looks like?  Greatist did a handy photo log that works as a great visual.

If the thought of severely limiting sugar doesn’t sound so sweet, you may consider challenging yourself to 30 days without it – whole 30 is one such means of seriously reorienting your taste buds.

Breakfast can harbour a surprising amount of sugar – especially if you find yourself short on time in the morning, with a habit of grabbing something to go.

Overnight oats can be a great option for those early mornings – I especially love mine topped with this easy raspberry chia seed jam.
