WATCH OUT FOR HIDDEN SUGARS This is an item I posted here from my Diabetic Enjoying Food blog. I know I repeat myself sometimes, but this is important. As a diabetic, you cannot just purchase and eat an item because it is labeded "healthy." Many foods, including those labeled "healthy" and many times especially those labeled "healthy," have way too much sugar! For example; a popular Yogurt Parfait with Fruit has 38 grams of sugar per parfait! An average Bran Muffin has 16 grams of sugar, and granola cereal - how often are you told to eat healthy granola? - averages around 13 grams of sugar per serving. I am not belittling these foods, just reminding you that the word "healthy" does not mean low in sugar. Beware!
