l is for lemons

A little behind here, but let’s get back to it. To catch-up, This will be diving into Joy Bauer’s food info for letters I, J, K, L, M, N, O & P. Instead just the first four. Luckily there are a good amount of shorter categories so it shall flow nicely.

Here we go…

lol so…nothing for I.

J is for…

Jam, Jelly & Preserves -“Spreads, such as jams, jellies, and preserves are made with fresh fruit or fruit juices. Low-sugar versions of these spreads can sweeten a dish and add new flavor possibilities while helping you stick with your weight-loss goals. Because jams, jellies, and preserves (even the low-sugar varieties) are high in concentrated sugar, people with type 2 diabetes should dramatically limit or avoid these spreads because of their elevating effect on blood sugar. Some also contain high-fructose corn syrup and may trigger IBS.” I love me some jelly in so many ways. On the original PB&J, to an English muffin in the morning, or as part of  a charcuterie, we always have a few different kinds in the house. Always looking at organic, or low-sugar versions. LOVE getting them from farmers markets, or little specialty shops.

    Your pictures are so lively and indeed your tagline “aspiring to inspire” goes well with what you write.
    Such a comprehensive blog full of key information.
    I read you haven’t had much of your hands on making lentils, you can take a look at my blog if it helps.
