Who doesn’t like applesauce? Apples are nutritious, packed with fiber to keep you feeling full. Plus, they are rich in polyphenols, which function as antioxidants that can help protect against heart disease and certain types of cancer.
When it comes to applesauce, varieties bought at the store are often loaded with added sugar. To cut back on your added sugar intake, try making your own applesauce; it’s easier than you think. When you make your own applesauce, you will be able to control how much sugar is added. Try using sugar free spices like cinnamon or nutmeg for extra flavor!
