Reflections on a sugar free week.

This no sugar thing turned out to by much more difficult than I had thought. Sugar is everywhere in our food and drinks. An ounce of katsup has four grams of sugar. An eight-ounce glass of juice has thirty grams of sugar.
I didn't get around to making a gallon of tea Sunday night, and I didn't find a glass of water for the morning so bad. At work I still drank a lot of sugar-free Indian tea. I had a cup of sweet tea with my lunch. Someone left out some chocolates and I had two.
I don't think I have anything great to take away from this except a newf ound dis-appreciation for the amount of sugar that we inundated with in everything we consume.
