Nothing worse than a recovering sugar-holic!

Found an article I thought you might be interested in reading. I'll try not to bore you with articles because I know there's nothing worse than a recovering addict of any sort whether it be sugar, cigarettes, drugs... Oh, and yes, we're still going to post recipes that include sugar. I mean, seriously, not everyone feels the same way about the stuff! - jmd

Sugar Shockers: Foods Surprisingly High in Sugar
WebMD takes a look at the sugar content in some popular packaged foods -- and the results may surprise you.

When you read the labels on foods in your supermarket, it's no surprise that you find plenty of sugar in products like cake mix, ice cream, jelly, cookies, and soda. But it can be downright shocking to see 12 grams of sugar in bottled pasta sauce or barbecue sauce -- and even more so to find 50 grams of sugar in a healthy-sounding bottled tea!

To help you ferret out which products are surprisingly high in sugar, I embarked on a mission in the aisles of my local market. Over the course of several days, with my reading glasses close at hand, I examined hundreds of nutrition information labels to check out the sugar content in foods.
