First of all, I am so glad that so many of you enjoyed the article
I posted this morning.
While I was reading the comments today, I think was spot on:
First of all, the nutrition facts on a label DO NOT define
it’s nutritional value. Some of the healthiest foods in the world are in fact
the highest in fat and calories.
- NUT BUTTER (and nuts)
Does that make them unhealthy?
Now that we are on the eve of 2011 (literally), it is time to start
planning out what I want to accomplish next year.
I remember my first “real” New Years resolution. It was for the year 2007
and I vowed to give up soda for the rest of my life. This might not sound like
a big deal, but for me at that time, it was a massive accomplishment!
When I was in junior high and high school, my normal breakfast was a bag of
Doritos, a pack of pop tarts, and a Sunkist. Sometimes the pop tarts were
exchanged for a cookie, but the Sunkist was essential. Back in the day, I
probably had at least 3-4 a day MINIMUM. My addiction to soda started in around
7th grade, but lasted until I started eating healthier at some point during
senior year of high school.
Since that day, I have not had a single drop of soda (regular and diet).
The first few weeks were tough, but once February rolled around, I did not even
think about it. Actually, right now I think soda is pretty disgusting and you
could not pay me to drink it. Actually, it depends on how much you are paying
