Snappy Shark Posted September 26, 2012 Share Posted September 26, 2012 I did a search on the forums, but I couldn't find a topic about this question... I'm about two weeks post-Whole30 now (still eating clean, because I love how I feel and simply can't imagine eating any other way at this point), and am wondering how to navigate the world of insidious added ingredients I so vigilantly avoided when I was doing my Whole30. Specifically sugar. I have no interest in crazy off-roading at this point, and I've successfully broken my 6 piece of fruit/day habit. However, in my ventures into the previously "off limits" portion of my pantry this week, I'm wondering how I'm going to feel if I crack open the forbidden jar of roasted red peppers with some added sugar. Or, a few weeks ago, Whole Foods had some really nice-looking sausage made from high-quality meat on sale in the deli - all with added sugar. I didn't buy any then because I was on-plan, but I'm wondering if I could even taste such trace quantities of sweetness, and what the harm is (esp. because my sugar and snack dragons are finally at bay). I'm definitely not going back to the days of nasty preservative-laden almond milk and stevia in my coffee, sugary store-bought salad dressings and mindlessly dumping honey on top of sweet potatoes, but I'm not sure what to do about these store-bought items I might occasionally consider buying. I guess I'm just curious how you all feel about small amounts of added sugar in otherwise "quality" products from time to time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
