(Added sugar just means sugar that's added to food during manufacturing or processing. So, like, not the naturally occurring sugar in fruit and dairy.)

Maybe you experimented with steaming, grilling, or baking your food instead of pan-frying it.

Or you've figured out how to use seasonings and whip up homemade sauces instead of relying on store-bought dressings and sauces.
