AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) — Cinco de Mayo is one of the biggest celebrations of the year filled with food, drinks, and fun. Why not make this year’s celebration a bit healthier and cut out all that sugar that leads to a number of health issues.

Jayne Jones is America’s No Sugar Baker. She landed in the ER on her 45th birthday with high blood pressure and blood sugar level, and she was moments away from having a stroke. She also went blind for 15 days. Jones was diagnosed as severely diabetic but didn’t want to have to depend on medication and insulin for the rest of her life. The self-taught baker returned to the kitchen, reworked all her recipes, and removed unhealthy sugar.

Jones joined weekend Good Morning Augusta anchor Shawn Cabbagestalk to share her No Sugar Baker’s Cheesy Taco Skillet recipe to help celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
