SimplySwitches Southern Style
The south gets a bad rap for unhealthy food (fried chicken, fried vegetables, actually fried anything). But one thing that the south does well that the north (or at least Canada) does not, is tea. Here “tea” means unsweetened cold tea. “Sweet tea” means with sugar added. Every single iced tea I find in Canada is loaded with sugar — 15 g is on the low end. 30 g to 60 g is more normal. There are 24 g in Arizona Iced Tea. 23g in an 8 oz Snapple Ice Tea.
And we wonder why we have a problem with type 2 diabetes? Sugar is not needed in tea.
If you need a little added zing, add lemon, mint or ginger.
