Finally someone said it

Thursday, February 02, 2012

Hello, my name is Colette and I am a Sugar addict.

A couple months back I posted information about Sugar and how it is hidden in what we eat. This morning, I wake up to a news broadcast about the dangers of added sugar consumption. abclocal.go.com/kgo/stor

So I am finally glad this was a topic. Usually people focus on Salt but this is something else that has plagued a lot of processed foods, One reason I limit the amount i consume.

I ate a red delicious apple yesterday and OMG...it was so sweet to me. We have been desensitize due to all the sugar/salt in our foods. Once I limited my consumption i realized I can really taste natural sugar.

    I love fresh fruits and veggies! It is amazing to me how overlooked the natural sweetness in these foods are because processed foods are such a big money-maker in this country.
