    Great post Jennifer! We try to limit sugar in our house as well and are pretty successful considering all the places sugar can hide. My advice: read labels, avoid fructose of any kind (unless it’s in whole food, fruit form) and make sure when you go for reduced sugar or “light” products that the sugar is not replaced by artificial sweeteners like aspartame.

    You have any ideas about main course meals. I’m breaking up with sugar and would like to bring my family along with me. My intention is to rid us of simple sugars, hidden sugar, high glycemic sugar…all but intrinsic sugar. We do whole foods but I’m questioning quick meals or slow cooker meals like casseroles. Thanks.
