Regular #sugarkills readers know that over the course of the year, I’ve been trying to make simple changes to the foods that I eat for breakfast.
My first change was to switch from a daily package of Chocolate Fudge Pop Tarts (40 grams of added sugar) to Oatmeal To-Go Bars (22 grams of added sugar). That change alone saved me 18 grams of added sugar.
Well, on the suggestion of Mrs. D — one of our best digital friends — I tried a White Chocolate Think Thin bar from Trader Joe’s and I fell in love with it. It’s moist on the inside and has an interesting chewy texture that tastes great to me.
And better yet — it has ZERO grams of added sugar.
That means I’ve gone from eating 40 grams of added sugar before the day even starts — which is almost two days worth of sugar — to eating NO added sugar before the day starts.
That’s how simple changes work: Find something you eat all the time and then replace it with something that you like just as much but that contains less added sugar.
