Found this pretty nifty Infographic about SUGAR! Beware- some things that are deemed as “healthy” may not be the best option.
When it comes to dried fruit, a lot of them have added sugar. Instead, reach for the real whole fruit and enjoy the natural sugars rather than the natural AND added sugars that are found in dried fruit. You will also be more satisfied because the whole fruit will fill up your stomach a bit more.
Oatmeal is another healthy item that gets ruined so that it tastes good. Unless the oatmeal packets say “plain” or “original” flavor, you are probably dealing with added sugars. Choose the plain oatmeal and add in your own sweetener, I like fresh fruit or a teaspoon of honey.
Read the infographic below for some other hidden sugar treats.
