Getting My Sugar Fix and Friday’s Fabulous Find

Okay, I sense a little bit of a theme here this week – SUGAR!!!!

The other day, I copped to the fact that I’m a candy-a-holic. Okay, it’s not really just candy, it’s pretty much sweets of any kind: cookies, cakes, candies, chocolates, all those great “c” words. And a few others. Yeah, I love sugar.

On the other hand, I’m staunchly anti-HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) and artificial sweetener. I won’t get into my reasoning since I don’t wanna seem like a crazy woman, but rest assured there are several well worn and used rants that my friends are pretty tired of hearing.

Needless to say, my stance on HFCS and artificial sweeteners makes food shopping so much fun (she says sarcastically). Do you realize how many things have HFCS in them and/or artificial sweeteners?!? Bread. No, really, bread has HFCS in it. WHY???? And try finding a non-fat yogurt without artificial sweeteners!!! Nearly impossible, but I managed to do it.

Allow me to introduce my non-fat, no artificial sweetener, no HFCS little friend:


Trader Joe’s Organic Strawberry Probiotic Nonfat Yogurt (it also comes in vanilla, but I’m a fruit flavored kinda girl).

And take a look at this ingredient list:


Oh yeah, baby, organic all the way.

And the best part:


That works out to only 2 Points on WW PointsPlus. W00t! Sooooo tasty, and not that nasty artificially overly sweet taste of other nonfat yogurts (I won’t name names but it start with a “yo” and ends with a “lait”). Ick. That evil little container used to be the one concession I’d make in my battle against artificial sweetener, and I felt a little pang of guilt every time I opened one up. But now guilt be gone!!!

Get my sugar fix and it’s good for me? Whoda thunk it?

Have a great one folks and I’ll talk to you tomorrow (since I already have a post written – ZOMG!!!). And I hope you have a Trader Joe’s near you cos this yogurt is – DAYUM – good!

    Thanks for the tip on the yogurt at Trader Joe’s. I still haven’t made the commitment to WW, but you certainly are inspiring.
