Salty or sweet?

Which do you prefer? I have to admit to the former. I’m much more likely to dip into the salty box than the sweet one, but over the years my craving for salty foods has lessened and now I use very little. I haven’t deliberately altered my habits, it just seems to have happened. One of my friends, however, is having a lot of trouble reducing her sugar intake. She sent me the link to this article, and I’m passing it on in case it is of interest to anyone. It begins by talking about Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I didn’t know there were such a thing, but I do sometimes eat yogurt – fortunately, not the one mentioned in the article!

  1. Never heard of most of the foods mentioned in this article. I try to avoid both salty and sugary foods, I’m diabetic and have slightly high blood pressure. makes choosing foods fun! Given the choice I would have crisps rather than a doughnut. However I confess to craving chocolate.

    1. I think most of them are American, but it’s still interesting reading. Subway is my least favourite place to eat over here. Even the picture of them makes me feel sick

  2. Salt makes me hold water almost immediately and I do not have a sweet tooth. Occasionally I like something savory. I do like a nice slice of pie of ANY kind on occasion though : )

  3. I’m carefully dieting at the moment so avoiding sweet stuff. Thankfully I rarely drink soft drinks – or alcohol 🙂 so that helps. I do eat a lot of fruit though and that seems to be a problem according to the article. I think trying to maintain some balance and common sense is the best we can do.

    1. I couldn’t agree more. Balance is the key. I was just amazed at the amount of sugar in pre-prepared ‘healthy’ foods. Just as well to stick with basic ingredients and make our own. I don’t think there is much wrong with fruit – as long as it’s part of a balanced diet – and I don’t drink fruit juice, prefer the actual fruit.
