One of the things I'm trying to do lately is give up some of the sugar in our lives. Or at the very least be aware of when we are using it. Like buying cereal with no sugar but then spooning some right onto it. It seems less processed and less sneaky. I've been reading labels like mad at the store and sugar or some other form of it
brown rice syrup,
diastatic malt powder,
high fructose corn syrup,
rice bran syrup,
is in EVERYTHING. So I'm just shopping for things with one or two ingredients. Not including bread and a few treat type things for the kids. It's hard. The kids aren't happy. But they aren't going to starve. There is plenty of food in there, just not what they want. It's been a crabby week and the Nutella is gone already. Hopefully in a few more weeks, we'll all feel better.
