It says 3 grams of sugar, but I don’t see sugar in the ingredients unless it’s disguised as something else?? Can I eat this trader joe muesli?
  • annefood Hey! The sugar is coming from the raisins, pear juice concentrate, and dried apples. Current nutrition labels show total sugar, which is a combination of any intrinsic sugars (from fruit, grains,...

I’m having a barbecue tonight, what are some no sugar options? And is honey allowed?

  • Rachna Sounds fun! So honey isn’t allowed but you can replace with dates which are naturally sweet. Also opt for a ketchup with no added sugar if your recipe calls for ketchup or stick with tomato paste....

  • ingalls Thanks! I kept looking it up. ;-)

  • Rachna I was also an avid gum chewer but kicked the habit by turning to an old school Indian solution - “Mukhwas” - which is usually a combo of seeds that act as a mouth freshener. The easiest one is...
  • gracealina Thanks! I will try the minty water. I put some lemon and cucumber in my sparkling water at home and that was nice too. I’ve had something like that at an Indian restaurant before, though I think it...

Is bread a NO on this challenge?! I just realized some fresh baked breads probably have sugar??? Help! Tips on which to avoid? Or avoid all?

  • Rachna Great question!! Some breads are definitely allowed, but most actually have some added sugar. It's best to check the ingredient label to be sure. Some favorites we love: Ezekiel sprouted grain...
  • joywang Hi there! I wanted to give a heads up if you ever check the label and it still says for example, 1g sugar even though there's no added sugar in the ingredients, that can be due to the natural...

I’m a big morning coffee drinker. I use 2 tsp of International Delight coffee creamer and a tbsp of whipped cream. Do I have to ditch this?
