You can have your cake and eat it too!

It's the mid-January, and by now, many people are starting to lose the willpower to stay on the diet plans that seemed so easy to stick to on January 1.

Many people in America suffer from Diabetes, Heart Disease, and high cholesterol, along with a multitude of other disorders. The sugar-free and low-fat diets that help control problems like these are often very restrictive, involving removing most of the foods and snacks that we love. There is hope for those of us with a sweet tooth, though, and it comes in the form of the variety of sugar substitutes available today. These substitutes, when used in baking, help us enjoy sweet snacks in moderation.

Here is a recipe for a warm and comforting Apple Crisp, courtesy of the American Diabetes Association. This dessert is perfect comfort food for these cold winter days. This recipe calls for the sugar substitute Splenda. Please make sure to consult your doctor if you are on any type of restricted diet plan.
