Whoa, who knew! I'm a confirmed brown bagger but we occasionally eat out. Thanks for the link.

Thanks so much for this article, CASSIES! I've been getting more into cooking, too, and being a vegetable lover, I am so eager for all the good veggies to arrive at the farmer's market! Isn't it amazing how much more appealing - and filling - the selections on the left look? I'd choose them any day!

Yes, I wish more places posted. I understand that they would be 'approximate' at any small shop, but getting a rough idea of values does help with choices, doesn't it! Glad you rocked that one, Cassie!

Glad you guys enjoyed it. I love eating portions of colorful, nourishing, healthful foods.

It makes eating out so much less appealing knowing how calorie loading and unsatisfyng the food is.

The other thing I am grateful for is when places like Dunkin Donuts posts its calorie counts. I was in one. I am getting quite tempted by the coffee cake muffin. I am dying to eat the top off of one.....but at 600 calories and no nutritive value I can't see eating nearly half a days calories via that muffin top!

Oh, I just thought of a good motto..."Don't eat the muffin top if you want to loose your muffin top." And I do want to loose it.. that and my lower belly are my most preffered areas for reduction.

Anyway, I came really close to getting one of those muffins today, but was able to get my coffee and back away from the counter.

Hoo, yes! I loved this article. I forwarded it on to a friend- and then it wouldn't let me save it to my favorites. Thanks for putting in the link, so I'll find it again when I want to show someone.
What a kick in the rear- to know we can EAT, and eat lots, and eat healthy, and not be hungry. It's so important to remember, isn't it?

I loved this article and saved it into my favorites.

I just wanted to post the link to it here in case any one is interested.

Last week when I was up 5 pounds I am sure it had to do with the bllod pressure meds. But, I also ate out twice and I am sure the sodium and preservatives in the food did something funky to my matobolism.

I am getting more into cooking again. I love saving the money and I can get much better calorie counts. This article is so darn convincing as well.
