  • annefood Great question @ingalls ! Pure stevia extract is the only "sweetener" that is allowed during the Avoid Added Sugar Challenge. Make sure that it is only stevia leaf though, as stevia products (such...
  • ingalls Thanks for the stevia info! Outside of that, avoid all the other artificial alternatives you'd find in typical "diet" and "zero calorie" stuff?
  • annefood You’re welcome! Yes exactly, avoid all artificial alternatives.

How do marinades weigh in regards to eating sugar? ie: a marinade for meat that uses Dijon mustard before cooking.

  • DietID_TeamDietitians So there are marinades that have added sugar and those that don’t. Dijon mustard is oftentimes made with honey (which is added sugar) so you can try the same recipe with ground mustard instead. You...
  • ingalls Thanks! Part of the question stemmed from picking up pre-made stuff. I noticed some things are awesome - like salad dressing listed ingredients. But marinades might just say “Dijon mustard” with no...
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Yes!! this is a hard one. Once the new nutrition labels hit the market, they will list out the actual grams of added sugar vs naturally occuring sugar. That should make all the difference. Great...
What challenge should I start next?🤨

Bread 🥖

I normally eat ezekiel bread and noticed one of the main ingredients is honey. Are there any breads without added sugar?
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Great question @AlexB! The Ezekiel low sodium and sesame sprouted breads have 0g added sugar. They have some malted barley, but it must be very little if it didn't register on the nutrition count....
  • AlexB Oh great! Thank you! I go to the RO market a lot so that’s perfect.
  • teachwitme Wow. Buy me some

Great recovery for my 4 mile run in the 90 degree heat!!
  • annefood Glad you found something without added sugar! The one thing to be aware of with Naked (the protein smoothie included) is that they’re primarily fruit juice (mainly apple) and thus have a very high...
  • ElanaG Definitely agree. I’m out of town for work, so I used this drink to recover after a 4 mile run in Denver altitude and 90 degrees 😄 usually I would have made my own!
  • annefood Good thinking on the go!

Composting

Can I compost olive pits, pistachio nut shells, and corn cobs after they’ve been boiled?
  • DietID_TeamDietitians The short answer is yes. But all 3 take longer to compost so for the shells and pits, just know that they will take longer to break down so you may need to filter them out if you’re composting at...
  • mmorawski For the cobs, even after they’re boiled or steamed? I’ve heard that once vegetables are cooked, you shouldn’t compost them. Just wondering…
  • annefood @mmorawski it’s fine to compost cooked veggies as long as they’re only steamed or boiled- so no fat or sauces.
