As the teacher behind #sugarkills, one of the things that I think we need to do a better job of is showing people that healthier eating choices are NOT that hard to pull off!
So I thought I’d start a new type of post for our blog today called Simple Changes Matter. The idea behind the category is to show easy replacements for the sugary foods in your life.
I’ll start with a sugary food that I love to eat: Pop Tarts. I had them for breakfast ALMOST every day for ALMOST a decade. The problem, as Abigail points out in this post, is that they are LOADED with added sugar.
So I started to eat Oatmeal to Go Bars for breakfast instead. They’ve only got 22 grams of sugar.
While that’s STILL almost a full day’s worth of sugar, it’s better than the 40 grams that I was eating when Pop Tarts were my breakfast food.
