Spaghetti candy on Day 10 of 210 giving up sweets
A serving of jarred spaghetti sauce can be loaded with sugar. I about flipped out reading the label of my favorite brand. 12 grams*.
I think it could be renamed spaghetti candy.
I decided to compare it to actual candy.
A package of Reece’s peanut butter cups is 8 grams
One Hershey’s kiss is 2.6 grams
*And 4 grams = 2 teaspoons
After additional research I found maybe I ought to steer clear of some salad dressings as well as most barbecue sauce.
Keeping it simple!!! WHAT I’M GIVING UP ON THIS 210 DAYS OF NO SWEETING
Sweets – which is defined as desserts (self-explanatory)
Semi – Sweets – which is pancakes, waffles, muffins
Drinks – I already drink no sugary soda or coffee
Canned or bottled Spaghetti Sauce and other dressings and sauces where the serving size sugar grams is more than 5
Aren’t there other ways of sweeting
Better habits, ways of living
Having cake, not voraciously eating
Cookies pies and candy
One way is grateful
Ahh, enjoy a whole plateful
Of thankfulness both body and soul
For care and provision and love
Another’s a road where we carry the load
Of another, much encumbered
A sweetness together inspired
Our brother, a neighbor, a stranger, friend
Then there’s the path of suffering
It’s not to be compared
It’s defeat over worldly desire
It’s a better way, there
It’s sweet victory
And a better way of sweeting
What we all are truly needing
Look up, cause it’s not here
