Answer:

Most cereals and many crackers contain added sugar, which is devoid of nutritional value and therefore what you want to limit. You donít need to worry about the sugar in fruits, vegetables and unsweetened dairy products; itís present naturally and accompanied by vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

I'm going to break from the current consensus and say cereal and crackers.

Fruits & veggies are healthy, especially in their original form! Extra sugar comes from the canned varieties, especially fruit.

Dairy is important for calcium and I suspect the largerl problem with some dairy is sodium.

Most cereals, on the other hand, are chock full of sugar as perhaps may be crackers. That's why I personally only eat unsweetened cereals and crackers.

Thank you for answering. I'm trying tomatoes this year.

These days, sugar seems to be in just about everything we eat. Which of the following foods should you limit your consumption of, for that very reason?


Fruits and vegetables

Cereals and crackers

Milk and plain yogurt

All of the above

(Check back next week for the answer.)

I do not have a garden. I wish I had a balcony or little patio so I could plant a few containers, but in reality I do not have a very green thumb.

I do not plant a garden for two reasons:

1. I don't have a place to plant a garden
2. I have a very brown thumb and everything I touch, as far as plants, dies on me

I admire other people's gardens from afar!!!

Blessings!

We do container gardening only, primarily because the deck is the only place that gets a lot of sun. Could try the front yard but usually deer, rabbits, raccoons, etc. help themselves there. We grow tomatoes, peppers (both bell and hot) and okra.

No. I have a black thumb. Sometimes my husband or my son will plant one, but I don't think they have plans to do so this year.

It varies greatly - sometimes none at all, if I am busy, sometimes up to 10 hours a week.

about 10 hours a week if you exclude the evening news. I mostly listen to that rather than watch, anyway.

Don't watch much during the day but at night I use it as I sleep poorly some nights and waking to a show/movie I've seen before, I don't have to watch it but can listen to the dialogue and doze off again most days.

I know we aren't supposed to use TV at night with the blue light but my devices have a blue light filter and I often sleep with my back to the TV. Newer research now lists TV as one of the ways many people use successfully to sleep.

Answer: ē Vitamin C
Eggs provide some of every vitamin above with the exception of vitamin C. They are one of the few dietary sources of vitamin D and are an excellent source of B vitamins. You'll also get several of the minerals your body needs to function, including calcium and phosphorus for bone health.
