What surprises me most about this article is that anyone could create a breakfast called Banana caramel cream stuffed pancakes (or whatever it was!! ) A whole days worth of calories, more than a days allowance of fat. I'd say it had no nutrition, but I think "anti-nutrition" is more like it.
fabulous article. Thanks for the pics--they help a great deal.
Wow! What an eye opener!
I know I sound like a 4 year old, but please show us MORE of these solutions. Just to visualize the restaurant foods we are served. I know another book i read suggested literally putting 1/2 your plate in a to-go box before you started to eat [when you're "out"], but to see the contrasted options was great.
Could you do a "choose this not that" at the best/worst places to go out? I know w/ lil kids sometimes I get stuck w/ a fast food invitation after a soccer game...
WOW - I used to love IHOP Big Steak Omlets, I guess I don't any more. :-0
WOW, I love this article. I've very surprised to the amount of healthy food I could be eating. I've gotten some great ideas for future meals. Thanks so much!!1
Wow.....I am really surprised at what the choices are for 300 cals.
This article really surprised me. And I thought I was cutting down by eating some of the foods shown on the right....This is great stuff
Waffles with Berries surprised me. I think I'll try that someday...
Pretty amazing difference in how full (or empty) the plate looks! Veggies & fruit are definite pluses!
So good. THANKS.
I agree with Steward's comment. What an eye-opener! It's one thing to read an article that suggests making healthy choices. But adding the visuals takes it to another level that hits home and proves to me that I can do this :-) I agree that seeing where snacks fit in would be super helpful. Thanks!
The1/2 of the veggie burger was very suprising to me,guess looks are deceiving,I never would've thought it was loaded like that!!!!!
The veggie burger phew! You'd buy it thinking you made a healthy choice... I'm just glad I don't do take away and cook everyday.
The soup and sandwich comparison became such an unbelievably small portion!!
