Spice it up: Cinnamon helps to stabilize blood sugar levels, and its natural sweet taste is a great addition to any recipe if you want to reduce the amount of sugar that’s called for.

Go organic: Use organic oranges when zesting to avoid pesticides. The zest can improve digestion, reducing belly bloat.

Almond alternative: Almond milk is low in calories and rich in the minerals manganese, copper and vitamin B2 (riboflavin), all of which are important in energy production.
