Sorry my posts haven’t been as frequent lately, but I have one best friend getting married next week and another having a baby any day now! And another minor event – we’re moving in less than a month! So yeah, busy busy time, but all awesome things :)
I came across something so well said recently and I wanted to share (forgive me for not remembering the source):
A food that’s “free” of something you don’t want (such as fat) probably has more of something else you also don’t want (like sugar or salt) to replace the missing ingredient. Trade a nonfat treat for a real-deal one that doesn’t make false promises and satisfies craving.
AMEN! Whole foods are where it’s at when it comes to your health and your waistline. Please don’t be scared or believe any hype that makes you fear whole, full fat foods (like yogurt, cheese, etc) Your body will absorb the most nutrients and be most satisfied by foods in their most natural form. Ever notice how you can keep eating and eating low-fat/non-fat foods, but with full-fat, you don’t seem to eat as much?
Personally, I love eating whole milk plain yogurt with fresh fruit and nuts rather than nonfat flavored yogurt loaded with extra sugar or artificial sweeteners. What about you?
Have a wonderful weekend!
