Wake Up Your Real Taste Buds for Luscious Goodies From Mother Nature — Forget Overly Sweet Cereals, Candies, Etc.

Filed under: Health — @ June 11, 2007

Americans, wake up to your real taste buds! Don’t get lured or lulled into clamoring for sickeningly sweet, sugar-packed cereals, candies, yogurts, vitamin-spiked waters, protein bars and other foods.

All you need are naturally sweet fabulous treats from Mother Nature — foods like organic, luscious strawberries, blueberries, apples, cherries, peaches, cherry tomatoes, red peppers, jicama, red snap peas, sweet potatoes, etc.

Besides, these delicious, natural, fiber-filled goodies — which you can pick or pluck from trees or out of the ground — are much more healthy for you and full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc. as I point out in my book SUGAR SHOCK!

The reason I have American tastebuds on my mind is because yesterday I spent much of the day Friday with a crew from CBS News (as I mentioned yesterday) and I was pointing to the unnaturally high sugar content in many packaged foods available today — something that’s not only completely unnecessary, but also quite harmful to millions. (Stay tuned, because CBS News Sunday Morning is airing an 8-to-9-minute story about sugar next Sunday, June 17. I’ll give you details shortly.)

Back to American tastebuds. So this morning, after resting up from my long day and week getting ready for my interview with CBS, I received a humorous reminder of the horribly sweet cereals now heavily promoted when a Google Alert notified me that Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes fame is gung-ho about a fictional cereal, Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs.
