I resign .....

I am no longer the "food police" person. Everything I thought I knew, means nothing. Turkey Bacon is really not all that great for you. You must watch the sodium. Turkey Sausage on the other hand, got a passing grade. (I don't like sausage!!) We must learn to read the labels. A serving is what the box, can, etc. says is a serving. If we cannot judge by eye-balling the food we should use a measuring cup.

My husband had a heart attack and heart bypass surgery. He agreed to go to Health Steps for exercise and help for eating better. I go with him to attend the nutrition classes. The more I go, the less I know. I do better reading than I do listening. And when the whole class joins in, it gets to be more confusing. A book that was recommended today is titled "EAT THIS NOT THAT". Ebay has millions of these books listed. I'll see if I can snag one.

He has the last class of the day. So what did we eat tonight? McDonald's Caesar Salad with grilled chicken. I'm sure the creamy French dressing wasn't the dressing the food police would recommend, but it sure was good!

It killed me to hear that 2% milk is not much less than whole. What the heck?
Still, I refuse to eat "almost butter".
Praying for your husband's healing!

We have that "EAT THIS NOT THAT" book! It's surprising the things that you thought were really good for you are the worse!

I think everything that is not good for you, tastes better! That's the problem. But once you get used to the new way of eating, it kind of gets easier. I had to change the way I eat in 2005. It sure was hard at first, but I learned to make things tasty without the fat and sugar and stuff. Now I'm used to it. And once in a great while, you're allowed to cheat a little! LOL.

You could try crisp bread - which is Rivita, and not bread from Macs.
Not so good at taste tho.

I'm going to look for that book too. Sounds interesting. Let's eat drink and be merry! LOL Tell Dad I have really really been craving fish stew. Is that on the list?
