Sugar cubes

I thought it would be a good idea to review all of the dinners that I have made these past few months to see how much sugar they contained.  Sometimes there can be sugar in things that you didn’t really intend.  I went through the numbers, and I think they’re pretty good.  The highest sugar count, of a non-dessert, was in the baked spaghetti.  It had 14 grams of sugar per serving.  I would imagine that was from the jar of sauce that I used.  I’m pretty sure I could lower that number by using a different sauce, or making my own.  Coming in a close second, were the shish kabob at 13 grams of sugar for three kabobs.  Part of that would be from the onion, but most of it would be from the Italian dressing.  Still those numbers aren’t terrible.  Most of the dinners I’ve made fell under 10 grams of sugar.  So I’m happy with that.  I know that the real sugar control issue for Dave will relate to snacks, desserts and beverages.  I’m still trying to come up with a replacement for his favorite soda.  In the meantime he is cutting back to one a day.
