The Sugar Content in These Common Foods Might Surprise You

February 26, 2015 10:01 am

No matter how diligently you count calories, it’s also very important to monitor your sugar intake when you’re attempting to shed a few pounds. Foods like cookies, ice cream, and sweet soft drinks are obviously off limits, but there are also a number of other sugary foods that might surprise you. Here are two common sources of sugar that might be flying under your radar.

  1. Fat-free salad dressings. Seeking out fat-free foods in the grocery store may seem like a simple way to stay on track with your diet, but many of these products attempt to maintain the same bold flavor by loading on the sugar. Salad dressings in both creamy and oil-based forms are loaded with sugar from sources like honey and concentrated fruit juice. Be sure to check the nutrition information before you buy.
  2. Multigrain cereals. Don’t just assume that all grains are automatically healthy. Multigrain cereals offer important fiber and whole grains that your body needs for energy, but unfortunately, many leading brands also include as many as six grams of sugar per cup. Many dietitians suggest opting for the plainest version of your favorite cereal and adding fresh fruit or a teaspoon of sugar instead.

Adamson’s French Dip: Try Meat Roasted the Old-Fashioned Way

February 18, 2015 9:01 am

The meat at Adamson’s French Dip is slow-roasted over a wood fire for an authentic sandwich. Meat lovers appreciate the flavorful and juicy meats on the menu here, especially the prime rib French dip sandwich and the Santa Maria tri-tip sandwich. Complement it a glass of Adamson’s old-fashioned draft root beer, which regulars call creamy and smooth, and be sure to pair your sandwich with an order of fries or onion rings.

The cozy dining area at Adamson’s isn’t great for big groups, but it’s an ideal casual dining spot for a few friends who like meaty sandwiches. Lunchtime waits can stretch to half an hour or longer, so call in your order ahead of time and pick it up if you're in a rush!
