Plainer Words Since 1968   January 12, 2012   PLAINER WORDS ONLINE…THE BRIDE OR THE BODY OF CHRIST?   The title suggests that there is a disagreement between the Bride and the Body.

Surprisingly High-Sugar Foods

Where Sugar Likes to Hide It’s a good idea to keep an eye on the amount of sugar in your diet. Natural sugar, the kind found in apples or potatoes, is better for you than added sugar, which is in soda and baked goods.
