Is It Healthy or Full of Sugar?
Consuming too much sugar may cause inflammation in the body, which can lead to less than optimal function of your nervous system and may even cause pain or other unpleasant symptoms.
Even if you think you’re eating healthy, sugar could be sneaking its way into your diet. Here are a few “healthy” foods that are sometimes full of the stealthy sweet.
Salads: Healthy, right? Well, sometimes. Take a look at your favorite salad dressing to make sure it isn’t jam-packed with sugar, as many are. Big offenders are often those that are fat-free.
Nut butters: Love almond or peanut butter toast in the morning? While they’re packed with protein, some have added sugar.
Bottled tea: Some people choose tea over coffee for a midday pick-me-up, but all too often it’s followed by a sugar crash. Check the label on your top brand to make sure it’s not full of unnecessary sweeteners.
