Watch Those Sugary Drinks

Sugar lurks just about everywhere, and especially in drinks that I fortunately don't partake of. The Boulder County Health Department will host a panel discussion about the topic this Thursday, the 3rd, and free lunch will be included, hopefully with a minimum of added sugar (if you eat something not made from scratch, look at the label - the sugar is shocking in places you'd never expect it). Here's the news provided via the Boulder Farmers' Market:
