no sugar

Three weeks ago I gave up sugar, refined and hidden. I’d be lying if I said it was easy because it is not. I feel better and have lost weight and that’s great, but I did it because I keep reading how bad it is for you and I want to be healthy. Once you start reading all food labels it is shocking just how much sugar gets added to foods you’d never suspect had sugar in them.

I decided this sounded like a pinhole opportunity. So I went to the grocery store and filled my cart with all the treats I cannot eat. The last photo was my area of the grocery I visit the most now….veggies.  I wish I had positioned my camera a little lower so more of the sugar-filled foods would show up, but you get the idea. I might have to go and do it again. The hardest part was putting all the food back on the shelves after the 5-minute long exposures.

    You are correct about sugar in everything. I do something close to what you did in grocery stores, I look at what I thought I wanted and talk myself out of it. It doesn’t always work, but it does more often than not. Add a bit of extra fun at the grocers by filling the cart and walking away. It’s fun for you, and creates jobs for people to put the items back. 😁
