Interesting facts I found today
Monday, May 31, 2010
I some times, not very often have fresh fruit with cool whip....I know cool whip is a processed food but every once in a while I have some.....so today was a cool whip day, but when I cut up my cup of strawberries and returned then to the fridge I saw the can of real whipped cream ..OH my I love real whipped cream...I have been known to just squirt it in my mouth....I thought wouldn't be be heaven to have real whipped cream..so I checked out the label....much to my surprise this is what I found
Cool whip light versus real whipped cream.......... 4 tablespoons of each
cal. 40 cal. 31
fat 2 grams fat 3 grams
carbs. 6grms carbs 1 gram
HOLY cow the real whipped cream had almost 10 less calories, 5 less carbs and 1 more fat gram.....
heck I'm in strawberry heaven eating my fresh strawberries with real whipped cream....
wonder how many other real foods I avoid because I think the fake stuff is lower in calories.
Having a great relaxing day...
