Semantics- Weigh in
We're going to do a little revamp of our diets. I'm hooked on the "pink stuff" and have been trying to get off of it in my tea by doing one packet of Sweet and Low and one packet of Stevia to try to ween myself. I tried straight up Stevia and I'm not there yet. (FYI- Target now carries a Market Pantry brand of stevia so it's less expensive than Truvia and the others.) We're also going to stop buying sugar free jello and sugar free pudding. I know those have artificial sweeteners and when I looked at the delicious pudding ingredients, I saw "partially hydrogenated" twice and that's not good. I'll make our own pudding from chocolate and skim milk if we want it bad enough. The Mr's sodium is out of control so we're going to cut some things (buh bye regular cottage cheese, hello my nasty no sodium cottage cheese for protein's sake and so long Laughing Cow "cheese.") We'll add some almonds and he needs to up his protein so we're going to sit down tomorrow and come up with a plan before we head to the grocery for our produce fuel up.
Still no idea what we're doing today but it's sunny and gorgeous and we're heading out somewhere! Hope you guys have an awesome weekend!
Have you been surprised by what's "snuck" into your diet?
