Sugar News


Kirkland (Costco brand) Mandarin Oranges in light syrup have 16g of sugar for the four-ounce cup. Dole Mandarin Oranges in 100% juice has 18g of sugar. Go figure. Both are too much for me and I have to consider cutting down/out these types of product. Nothing wrong with them I just don’t want the sugar. Gotta read the labels.

My Sugar Blues


I went online last night and “googled” suggestions for cutting sugar from ones diet. Well let’s start with cutting out sugary drinks. Did that years ago when I became diabetic. Suggesting that I exchange a sweet drink for unsweetened ice tea sound crazy to me. What the heck. Why would I drink unsweetened iced tea? Iced tea is sweet right? Any way I have to start somewhere else. I think staying away from cakes, cookies etc. will be a place for me to¬† start. I’m going to a Bar-b-Que on Sunday and it’s a birthday party. Wow there will be multiple sweets there. Sigh. So we’ll see how I do tomorrow. Stay tuned!
