Adventures in Avoiding High Fructose Corn Syrup

Yesterday, Grant and I went grocery shopping. We got some ice cream, and Grant wanted some chocolate sauce to put on top. HOWEVER, all of that stuff has High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) as the first or second ingredient. Yuck!

Disappointed, we walked on, but then, Grant had a smart idea and took off at a surprisingly fast pace toward THE BAKING AISLE.

"Follow me!" he said, "I have an idea!"

Grant is SERIOUS about his chocolate. So I knew he had a good plan. We get to the baking aisle, and he grabbed a bag of chocolate chips! Yes, they cost more. But guess what? No HFCS! Hooray! Our journey toward eating more naturally continues!

Tell me, what little victories have you enjoyed lately?


  1. Chocolate Chips never last long around my house. They almost never make it into a cookie.

    Little victories? Hmmmm, I think I have made the bed about 5 days in a row. That may be a record!

  2. I replied to your question about pine and cedar chips on my blog :) Have a great day!

  3. We tend to not eat that stuff at all around here. When shopping I taught my one son to read the labels so he knew whether I would buy it or not. Like yogurt! I refused to buy it with that stuff in it.
    Like catchup and pancake syrup. I pay the extra to get it with out.

    But Chocolate syrup-I buy one bottle once a month and when it's gone it is gone!:) Somethings just can't be beaten! Like cold chocolate milk:)
