If you don't bring it home, you can't eat it!

Wednesday, December 07, 2016

Saw a bag of dark chocolate M&M's and put them in my grocery cart. Then I looked at the calories and was shocked to read the 1/4 cup was 210 calories. Now I don't know about others, but who can eat 1/4 cup of M&M's? I put them back right away and was so happy.

Last night I was poking around for a snack and was even happier that those M&M's weren't in the house.

Lessons learned? Check the nutrition label and don't bring anything home that you don't want/need to eat.

    Good for you! When I grocery shop I challenge myself as I'm going into the store not buy sweets but to buy one good-for-me treat that I can eat as soon as I get home. It's usually an orange, grapefruit, special apple (like honey crisp), or banana to make into a smoothie with berries and milk. When I leave the store it's rewarding to know that I met my challenge.
