Very informative and interesting article. Thank you for sharing this with us!
Thank you. We have a potluck picnic coming up this month and I have been trying to figure out what to take. I think these ideas have confirmed what I was thinking of taking.
It can get pretty difficult at potlucks because just about everything that people bring seems to be high in carbs, so I like to try to take something that is low in carbs that I can eat. Not the easiest thing in the world to do.
Thanks for sharing
Great article! Thank you for including a comparison (hamburger bun or cupcake). As a side note, I use sandwich thins instead of hamburger buns. They are lower in sugar and because they are thin you taste more of the burger, making it more satisfying (at least to me).
I choose to stay mindful that the event is limited in time... not all day or all week.
No food is off- limit but make choices based on nutrition & enjoyment factors then thoroughly enjoy the treat without guilt, and only as much as is thoroughly enjoyable.
Thank you for the very interesting and informative article! I learn something today!
Thanks for sharing. I can always learn new things. Blessings.
