I save enough calories yesterday to splurge and eat a 200 calorie pack of Oreo Cookies. I tend to eat these “funny” yes, I like to pull them apart but generally do not like the cream filling (ugh, powdered sugar and shortening!!!) but I did eat the cream so I could have the full effect. Well, I ate my pack, didn’t feel very good, and to boot it took me 15 min to brush the chocolate gunk out of my teeth.
Afterwards I thought of some things I could of ate instead, like 2 containers of my 100 calorie yogurt (8 oz each!), a nice open faced chicken sandwich on wheat bread with lettuce and lite dressing, or a full 1 1/2 cups of my yummy split pea soup.
Lesson learned, it’s OK to indulge once in a while but let’s get real and eat some good food!
