Why Doing One's Homework is SOOOOO Important
Friday, August 24, 2012
Twice a week, I volunteer in a medical clinic that opens at 630AM. On the weeks that I'm at my parents' (such as this one), I've developed the habit of using the drive-thru window at Dunkin Donuts for breakfast en route to clinic.
Today, I decided to look up the nutritional value of that "reduced fat blueberry muffin" I've been eating with my black decaf coffee. Oh my goodness!
From their website:
Reduced Fat Blueberry Muffin - 25% Less Fat than our regular Blueberry Muffin
Calories: 410 Total Fat: 10 Sat Fat: 2 Cholesterol: 55 Sodium: 620 Total Carb: 75 Fiber: 2 Sugar: 40 Protein: 7
Unfortunately, I ate it 9 hrs before I looked it up. :(
Revised plan: I will wait to have breakfast AFTER clinic in the future. I know I won't die of starvation!
Live and learn.
