"You've gotta try Nutella," she said.

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I walked into my fave little grocery store (fresh and easy) to find strawberries on sale. My store friend (you know how you make friends by shopping regularly at a place) grabbed my arm and excitedly advised, "oooooh, you've just gotta try Nutella with strawberries. It's amazing."

I smiled and laughed softly, thanking her. But I good -naturedly explained that I don't need one more thing that is delicious in my life. I've worked hard to recently get rid of sugar after being a lifelong sugar queen of the universe. I'm sure Nutella is delicious; I'll take her word for it. (smiling)

On another note, I am really really (really) enjoying this little pink Fitbit of mine. After being so resistant to it, I'm very glad I made the leap. And if you get one, don't forget to join the SP Fitbit team. The leader, Rockman, is so helpful and the members are terrific.

Wishing all a wonderful day.

    Congrats on your resolve to stay away! You made a fine choice! Nutella is the devil in disguise! LOL...Oftentimes, I am tempted to buy it, and then I remember how easy it was to sit there with an open jar and a spoon! So I don't buy it! :)

    I've never tried Nutella and after reading the comments here I don't think I'll try it at all.

    I love Nutella, but never harbored any illusion that it was or could ever be considered healthy. I always considered it a dessert. I've made my own before and it turned out great. And I don't even like hazelnuts much.

    I can't believe people fell for Nutella being 'healthy'. It's like eating frosting!!
I love Fresh & Easy too!

    When I first was introduced to Nutella, long before I paid attention to sugar grams, I thought it was overly saccharine. And no wonder! I just double checked online and a single serving, which is two tablespoons, has 21 grams of sugar.

Nutella's website made me laugh. They tried to imply if some Nutella spread on bread along with a glass of orange juice and several pieces of fruit would consist of a healthy breakfast...

    Nutella seems to be a staple food among bicycle tourists. Fortunatelly, neither DH nor I like it. I don't care for the hazelnut flavoring in it. I'm so glad!

Have a great day.

    Oh, I do love Nuttella, but I never buy it because I would just sit and eat it off the spoon. I mean, it IS chocolate....... lol

    I've never tried Nutella either for the same reason. I like my berries plain or with a little whipped cream.

I really need to consider the Fitbit when I'm healthier.

    Nutella is good, but PB2 has only a fraction of the calories and fat grams, and the site offers many recipes to cut sugars and fats.

    Omgosh you made me crack up Sugar Queen of the universe (which is what I am now trying to stop really I am!) emoticon

I do have to tell you Nutella is really good, hubby and I first had it in Paris off this little food truck by the Eiffel Tower on a crepe, it was delicious so much in fact the next day we went looking for that same food truck to get another one! emoticon

You are doing so great. KEEP IT UP! I wil have to read up on the Fitbit sensation now b/c honestly I don't even know what that is. Seriously, not kidding.

    Nutella is very good. We get it it once in a great moon, because it's just not healthy to eat very often. Someone posted this recipe from Spark Recipes a few days ago. It's an alternative to Nutella.

    I also read nutella is one of those things that sounds like it's healthy, but is so totally NOT
