My Latest Tweet:



I'm on an anti-sugar campaign. I've always been a sweet junkie, and I'm now trying to change that. I'm paying closer attention to the hidden sources of sugar and trying to avoid them as much as I can.

This is not as easy as it sounds... at my request for sugar free snacks, my husband brought home trail mix, which although is mostly nuts, contained M&Ms and raisins. Even the bag of plain Almonds he bought listed sugar in the nutritional summary (2g per 50g of almonds).

An easy way to visualize the sugar content in food is to consider that 1 tsp of sugar contains 4g. That means that the small (591 ml) bottle of Gatorade my husband was drinking contains 9 tsp of sugar!!! Yikes.
