Sugar Free Sunday and Cola
Welcome to one of the sweetest weekly virtual potluck get-together ever! Yes indeed — it is Sugar Free Sunday! We host it every Sunday to exchange incredible sugar free recipes. Inspiration to start the week right? You bet!
So, we’ve all heard that cola has way too much sugar in it. But, visually, how much sugar does coca-cola actually have? Curious? Check out this interesting website, Sugar Stacks, which shows you sugar in terms of sugar cubes, instead of the traditional, “xyz” grams of sugar. Pictures are worth a thousand words, so I’ll let these pictures speak for themselves!
If that wasn’t enough, here is another metric. You’ll have to consume 3 pounds of carrots to equal one bottle of coca-cola!
Getting a “sugar high” takes a whole new meaning, with all calories in a red bull coming from sugar!
The interesting thing about this website is that it shows the amount of sugar in vegetables and fruits in terms of sugar cubes too. This way, you actually get to visually see how much sugar you are consuming. Check out the Beverages and the Carrot Stacks section to see how much sugar is present in some everyday snacks!
So, will you think twice before you reach for a can of cola next time?
