Inspirational Tip

My friend Sarah had a habit of drinking a can of Coke every afternoon when her mother was in the hospital dying. That's 39 grams of sugar, or 10 teaspoons! She continued this habit after her mom had passed and just thought "I need a sugary soda every day". One day she had the realization that she had associated the soda with comfort because of her time with her mom at the hospital. Once she reminded herself that her comfort comes from God and God alone, she was able to quit her soda habit! Remember that God is your comfort – not sugar.

Challenge

Your challenge for today is to go through your fridge, freezer and pantry and read the food labels. You may be shocked by how much sugar is added to your favorite food items. Being aware of where sugar is sneaking into your diet is a great first step!

For now, I only want you to pay attention to the "Added Sugar"

Make sure to watch the video above so you can understand what "Added Sugar" is and how to read a food label.

Recipe Makeover

Did you know that most jams are loaded with sugar. Eating a slice of toast with some jam can pack 16 grams of sugar. Give this quick, healthy strawberry jam recipe a try. Literally takes only minutes!
