Better-for-You Nutella

Let's be honest: Even though it's marketed as a healthy breakfast choice, store-bought Nutella is and always will be dessert. The (delicious) stuff has about 5 teaspoons of sugar per 2 tablespoon serving, plus non-sustainably sourced palm oil and artificial flavors. Skip the store-bought version and make your own with less sugar and a few simple ingredients!

DIY Gatorade

Attention Gatorade guzzlers: While sports drinks may seem like a healthy choice, they're usually loaded with a ton of added sugar, plus artificial colors and flavors that you just don't need. Skip the bottled stuff and make your own with this recipe using coconut water, citrus, and raw honey.
