Cheers to this study (and to healthy carbs)!
Happy Sunday! Today has been insanely busy, but I just couldn’t resist the urge to add a post tonight. I was doing dishes and was thinking about an article I read a little while back. Luckily I was able to find it on Google because I had the inkling to share it.
You may have read this, but a recent study demonstrated that those who watched their calories and ate carbs lost just as much weight as those on a low-carb diet. I am a strong believer of a balanced diet. Now, if someone decides to embrace a restrictive diet, I am 100% for it if it fits them well and makes them feel better. However, it is nice to see support of my food philosophy: Eat what you love, eat smart, and then exercise to bring it all into balance.
Cheers to healthy carbs!
I also have to share a few of the Harry & David finds I came across while running errands today.
I found lentil chips. I have never tried them before and I am dying to get my hand into that bag. I think they will be making an appearance at lunch tomorrow. I thought a small amount of the fire roasted red peppers would be fantastic mixed with spreadable light swiss (like Laughing Cow). I do this a lot with a different relish I keep on hand. It is a quick way to make a nice, low-calorie dip. I will give it a try later and let you know how it goes!
I about fell over when I saw the strawberry rhubarb conserves. I get so excited over any strawberry-rhubarb combo. They did mix in a bit of added sugar which always disappointments me (seems so pointless with fruit!), but I grabbed a jar anyway for a little “indulgence treat”.
On a final note, I also wanted to send a quick “Thanks!” to my most recent readers for sending comments. It is so nice to hear from you and I have found so many great new blogs lately thanks to your comments. Who knew celebrating food could be so fun!?
