Reducing your intake of processed sugars found in candy and baked goods are definitely a good way to go, but there are many healthy types of sugars, like the ones featured in fruit.

Juice bars are really taking over the country! But the problem with bottled juice is that after it is juiced, it quickly looses it’s nutrients and you are left with only a high sugar content.
