As I have been making a better effort to eat well, I have realized that there are three things in the entire world that taste good: fat, salt, and sugar. It seems like everything that is worth eating has at least one of these things. I’m starting to think that there is nothing healthy in a typical grocery store. If something claims to be low fat, it will inevetably have a lot of salt or sugar. For example, today I wanted to get some Bisquick, then noticed that there was a healthy version. It claimed to have no fat and lower calories. That was true, and it even had lower sodium than regular Bisquick. I was just about to get it when I noticed that it had signifcantly more sugar than the other. Its so frustrating.
Health tip of the day: A guy at the gym gave me this tip, and I am starting to use it: Put spinach on everything. He told me it is a natural steroid. I’m not sure what he meant by that, but I know it is really healthy, it tastes pretty good, and goes great on almost every lunch sandwich I make (except for PB & J).

so that’s why popeye liked spinach so much!
Ok, Spinach? Sick!!! But, here is a health tip! Don’t drink diet soda. Instead, limit yourself to one can of regular soda a day if you have to have it. The sugars in diet are so much harder for our bodies to break down, that we are better off drinking the regular. I could go on and on about this, but hopefully you will just trust me and I won’t have to get out the powerpoints. 🙂 Have a good one!
Come on, give spinach a chance it isn’t that bad. In fact, fresh spinach doesn’t really have that much taste. I agree, that stringy, wet stuff in the frozen rectangle is not appealing. Fresh spinach is pretty good.
