"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.

    That reminds me of my friends trying to get me to taste a new chocolate cheese spread!! Noooooooooooo! I have enough things in my life that I need to avoid so no need to add more!! Well done on not tasting. 'One bite is too much and a thousand never enough'!!

    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 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

    My Fitbit is on the way, can't wait!!!

    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.

    Now I know not to try this emoticon

    How true, we don't need one more thing that's delicious:)
    I'm so glad you're enjoying the Fitbit and the team!

    My daughter's buy a nutella equivalent with healthier ingredients. Myself, I avoid it. I have tated it though and it is very good.

    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
