Day 7: Read the Label

A travel day. Dangerous for the diet – but managed with black beans and a slice of avocado from the burrito bar.
Arriving at my destination, someone offered me oatmeal. The oatmeal was sweet – and I quickly fell under the sugar spell. Later, I looked at the label – 10 grams of sugar (evaporated cane juice) – nearly half the daily maximum recommended!

Read the label before eating the oatmeal.
