I Wasn't Hungry Anyway

Dude. Bridie has a Healthy Living website that has a ton of great information on it. Hooray for your dedication to making you and your family healthy, Bridie! Me? We try but not with the same gusto Bridie has  : D 

So she linked to this article today. While this particular article may not bring out too many surprises, there are some additional links within it that were uber enlightening for me. *Sidenote: can 30 year olds still say uber?*
Like the 30 Saltiest Foods in America. There are salads on this list!!!! Also 20 Salads Worse Than a Whopper. I mean, come on!
On the up side, they also list The 50 Best Snack Foods In America. Some are no brainers and others were enlightening and appetizing.

So I figure, knowledge is power. Knowing these items and being able to avoid them, or alternately look for them when we're shopping helps us make a few healthier decisions for our families...and ourselves. This is the kind of change I can get on board with : P

Cuz....The More You Know (and shooting star).
You  have no idea how long I've wanted to use that line on here!

  1. I have come to the realization that really is the little decisions we make every day that make or break us when it comes to healthy eating.

  2. You'd think that after going after this information "with gusto" for a couple years that there would be no more surprises - yet I keep realizing the dearth of information that exists that I will never get through it all. Sometimes it's repackaged in a way that speaks to me.

    And yes, now I finally get to use the word dearth. Yeah!

  3. i love your frequent updates :op

    we're trying to eat healthier around here too. gotta change our habits before we teach the next generation how to do right. it's crazy how many things you do differently when you have children - esp when breastfeeding... I just randomly realized that I have to take better care of myself because even though he's almost a year I am still his primary source of nutrition. we've always talked about being healthier and making better eating choices, but now we're actually DOING IT!!!

    ps... you owe me a phone call... blog about that hehe j/k LOVE YOU!!!
