We have the world at our fingertips. For example; If I want a rich chocolate chip cookie, I jump on Google and do a quick search for a healthy low calorie rich chocolate chip cookie. Then I can incorporate it into my weekly calories. Often, I end up eating healthier than I would have without the

What I DON'T keep in the House on a Regular basis!
Cream Cheese, cookies,brownies,soda at all [no diet,nothing],cupcakes,donuts, high cal pizza[we go for Kashi Med. pizza @ 290 for a 1/3 slice],cakes,pies,ice cream[we go for frozen yogurt instead!~our fave=Chocolate Fudge Brownie Frozen Yogurt by Dreyer's!]. We know we eat processed foods,just changing our preferences on what not to eat! What foods do you keep out of your house?
They aren't great for you. Cookies are cookies even if they are organic or whole grain. So are cakes and brownies, no matter how natural the sugar is. Bread isn't a whole grain, either, and you can get your fiber from vegetables and fruits instead. It sounds preposterous, but it's helped me a lot!
