Day 14: Sugar is in EVERYTHING!

Eating Paleo 31 DaysSo, I have a confession. This time it might be a real cheat. I’ve been using our Lawry’s seasoning on beef and chicken that I’ve eaten. I never looked at the ingredient list until tonight. Number 2 on the list: sugar. Arg! It’s everywhere! Deli meats, bacon, spaghetti sauce … it all has sugar. How annoying! Why does it have to be in ev.er.y.thing?

On my menu for the week: spaghetti squash with some sauce, only I’ll have to find some sauce without sugar, I guess. And we’re having beef stew tomorrow. Guess what’s in the seasoning I usually use? Sugar. Cornstarch. Wheat stuff. I figured that, but geesh. I guess I’ll have two crockpots of stew going on tomorrow.

Other than my annoyance with sugar right now, today went pretty well. I was craving some sweet stuff more today than recent days, but that might be because I bought some chocolate chips at the store today. I didn’t eat them. I just bought them. And dreamed about eating some gooey chocolate chip cookies. Sigh. 😉

I guess this is a fairly short post. Here’s what I ate today:

Breakfast: Omelet with bacon (inside) and avocado.

Lunch: Salad (spinach, romaine lettuce, red & yellow tomatoes, olives, turkey and pecans. Apple.

Supper: A burger again with avocado and tomato. Sweet potatoes (my new addiction). Apples.

We have a lot of apples from my Father-in-Law’s trees, so that’s why we’ve been eating so many lately. Yummo!

    It’s amazing how we consume so much sugar and don’t even realize it! Beef Stew is on our list for this week, too. 🙂 I will be thinking of you when we have it.
