I've been meaning to ask you - since high fructose corn syrup is bad is regular old corn syrup just as bad? Should we be avoiding it also?

There are some really tasty fruit roll ups at Sprouts that are made with - guess what? - real dried fruit. And they taste better too!

Corn syrup is better than high fructose because it is not processed as much but still is much worse than sugar. I love the fruit roll ups from sprouts, they are Fruitabu and I eat them all of the time! I do miss the red dye no 2 though! Kidding of course.

Your class was so awesome today. I learned so much. I went right home and looked at all the ingredents of the snacks I had in my pantry. I feel bad that I was feeding that to my two year old. I will be reading lots of ingredents from now on. Thanks for all the great information.

Your class was full of good information. I am now on the look for a good deal on the yogurt maker. I loved you granola, too. Thanks for putting all the recipes together. I will be use them.
