Lesson learned about "reduced fat"

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Today I went to yoga and then had coffee with one of my friends afterwards. I ordered a medium non-fat latte and a reduced fat fruit & nut scone. I thought I was being good by ordering the reduced fat scone. Just now, I'm putting in my food eaten for today, go to Peet's to get the nutritional info on my two items and come to find out, my reduced fat scone had the second highest amount of calories of the scones I could have gotten.

    Ouchies. Yeah, foods that make a big deal about being "healthier" by being low in something often have hidden problems.

    Oh well. Live and learn. Hopefully you paid attention to which items were more in line with your plans so you know what to order in the future.

    To remove fat most food needs more sweetener.
    Scones are always sabotaged. I started making mine at age 5 and just this week I have made 60 of them I hope you realise it is the highly processed white flour and undoubtedly they have white flour and lots of white sugar so you do not miss the fat.
    FAT is a very necessary nutrient. Sugar is most definitely not needed.
    Read up on the good fat articles on Spark and add a little fat and a lot less sugar and artificial sweeteners and you will find that many foods taste very different and much more FLAVOUR instead of boring SWEET.
