Ever since that Wednesday, way back in March, I've been so good about not eating any refined sugar. I slipped up, once, and discovered how much it wasn't worth it to have a body full of sugar. Blech. But this was chocolate. Dark chocolate. And raspberry. The temptation was great. After all, it was just one square. Just this once.
I overcame the temptation. After all, it's just not worth it. Into the garbage it was going.
I happened to flip it over and read this on the ingredient list: partially hydrogenated soybean oil.
Into the garbage it went, without any guilt whatsoever. I might have to fight sugar, but anything with the words "partially hydrogenated" or "high fructose" are not going to pass my lips voluntarily. This rule makes it a lot easier to fight against the convenient packaged foods that my body has been suckered into enjoying.
Perhaps instead of tagging this "sugar-free", I should now declare myself "free from sugar". :)
