1. Yogurt with Fruit – usually yogurt is on the good list of foods to eat but yogurt with fruit is packed with sugar.
2. Canned Soup – sugar is added as a preservative to many canned soups to extend their shelf life.
3. Salad Dressing – it’s going on a salad so it should be healthy, but just like fruit in yogurt, salad dressing is packed with sugar.
4. Tomato Sauce – sugar is often added to cut the acidic taste of tomatoes and to keep jarred sauces fresh for a longer period.
5. Bread – 2 grams of sugar per slice…look for whole wheat flour or no added sugar.
6. Granola Bars – they sound a heck of a lot healthier than they really are. It’s pretty much glorified candy bar.
7. Dried Fruit – a handful of dried cranberries can contain up to 29 grams of sugar. Look for all-natural and no sugar added options.
8. Orange Juice – drinking a glass of orange can have almost the seem amount of sugar as a glass of pop. Eat a real orange instead!
