Sugar in food

Candy | Jan 7, 2007 05:37 PM

Last night we went out for the first time to a restaurant which has been in town for a couple of years. It is a franchise outlet of a Louisiana small chain, D'Angleo's. I ordered a sausage and pepperoni calzone and the filling had ricotta which had obviously been heavily sweetened with sugar. I found it really unpleasant. We no longer follow a low fat diet, it was too unhealthy for us and after cutting out sugar and white flour and products made there with I've become really sensitive to sugar.

I was also watching Food Network and today's programing seems to be all about eating "healthy". I was watching Barefoot Contessa in particular and was just wowed by the amount of sugar was going into her so called "healthy" food or was in it to begin with. Anyone else have an issue with this? We definitely won't be going back to that restaurant.
