Another Simple Breakfast Change


(click to enlarge)


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.

    So glad you liked them Mr. F! I’m sure you read the ingredients and noticed the bars do contain alcohol sugar. I tried googling what that was, but got a description far too technical to understand… perhaps you could explain it better? Isn’t alcohol sugar still sugar?
