Eat This, Not That

Hey folks! Thanks so much for your interest and comments! It's funny how when we feel connected to others it directly impacts our positivity throughout the day. I suppose I could wax philosophic on how "No Man is an Island" here but that sounds waaaaay boring. I would so much rather share an awesome, free resource with you!


Just want to make everyone aware of a simply FANTASTIC website and email subscriber list. This is actually the ONLY mass email that I open and read (sorry airlines and spammers).
This
site has oodles and oodles of lists that tell you the calorie count, nutritional value and better alternates of many edible (and drinkable) items. It also categorizes its lists into helpful categories like vending machines, kids' drinks, alcoholic beverages, chain restaurant meals and (my personal favorite) bathing-suit-ready-foods. For instance, did you know that even though broccoli and cauliflower are two of the best foods for you out there, you shouldn't eat them right before you're about to bare it all? Apparently, these little guys have something in them called raffinose (a complex suger) that causes your belly to bloat while digesting your meal. GOOD TO KNOW, right?!?! Yay, now you have a totally legitimate excuse for not eating the broccoli and cauliflower on the crudite platter at that faulous beach shindig......
Don't forget to subscribe to their list for email updates if you want them.

Have a fabulous few days! My next posting will be another Go-To item, this time one that made me wonder how my "unmentionables" wardrobe seemed complete without it.....a little more intimate than the soft-sided cooler...... until then!

  1. Wow - I definitely need this right now. I've been having some MAJOR stomach issues lately and the docs can't figure a thing out. But knowing all of this will definitely help me keep the bloating to a minimum... at least I hope!!

  9. I am starting a NEW Mr. Linky party. It will begin on Aug 10th so everyone will have a week and a half to think about their first post. I have a poll up for votes on which button should be the new button. The "party" is called The Knock Off Knock Out-where THRIFTY meets creative sensation. Go over and learn more about the new weekly event and I would appreciate if you would cast your vote and HELP pick the new button design and its the last week for the July GIVE-A-Way, if you would like to be a part of that event..
