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.

Lentil Chips, Fire Roasted Peppers, and Strawberry Rhubarb Conserves

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!

Strawberry Rhubard Conserves

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!?
