Sugar is not so sweet for our health. Or at least that seems to be the new consensus. But just because you want to avoid the sweet stuff, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy muffins or cookie dough or even ice cream (yes, ice cream!). Whether you have dietary restrictions because of doctor’s orders, or simply want to cut down on sugar consumption, there are still plenty of snacks that will satisfy without making your sugar levels skyrocket.
