A Tuesday Tip

I am going to try and start something new here and try to give a new tip, insight or idea each Tuesday.  Maybe a little food for thought from time to time, but good stuff, I promise!

Today’s tip is a quickie.  Trying to watch my carbs these days, you would be surprised what foods have added sugar, corn syrup or added sweetener (when in my mind, it’s not necessary).  Well, today I noticed that Vanilla Extract has added sugar.  I’m thinking a lot of people would be better off making their own extract (including me :)), and it is not hard to do.  There are recipes all over the internet and it just takes a Vanilla Bean and Vodka.  Steep for a few weeks and voila!  You have Vanilla Extract!

Now there’s your “Tuesday Tip”.  Enjoy!
