Happy Thankful Thursday!
What are you thankful for today?
I’m thankful for my health, my family,
my friends, my sense of humor, drive, 2 new stores:
and YOU, my readers!!!
In fact, a SPECIAL THANKS to one of my AWESOME MORSELITE’S:
Amy, who sent me this super cute EAT MORE KALE sticker from Vermont!
Love it and it’s sitting right here on my desk!
In a desire to wean myself from even more sugar,
I’ve been experimenting with using LESS fruit in my smoothies,
NOT saying you have to, but wanted to share.
The results have been pretty tasty. There is still sugar in carrots.
In fact, 1 medium sized carrot has 3 g sugar.
A small apple has 13 g sugar.
1 cup blueberries has 15 g sugar
1 banana has 28 g sugar
1 cup chopped zucchini has 2 g sugar
1 cup sweet potato has 13 g sugar
1 tsp of sugar = 4 g sugar, fyi.
Here are a couple of great sites with nutritional data:
Granted, the sugar comes from food in its natural state, but
it still adds up and for diabetics, they have to watch ALL sugar.
Just more food for thought.
My LESS FRUITY GREEN SMOOTIE (because the Morselist LOVES her rhymes)
is quite tasty and passes the MORSELICIOUS test.
