Did You Want Fries With That?

Watching Super Size Me and few years ago made quite an impression on me. I can't help but think about how your health can be effected by the food choices we make.

I also realized that much of food culture has to do with what we see and hear advertised. It IS hard to eat just one chip, of course I want fries with that....

But that was then and this is now...we have options. Here are a few healthy versions of our fave fast or junk foods. Instead of fries...try zucchini fries. Say no to another potato chip...say yes to more parsnip chips. No need to ask "where's the beef?" when you can have a sweet potato and black bean burger.

None of these will taste just like the non-healthy versions you are used to but they will all satisfy your appetite and may help to curb your craving for empty, nutrition-less food. Now you can super size with the healthy variety and feel good about it (but not too much!)

Happy Good Eating!

Healthy and Refreshing

Everyone seems to be jumping on the health bandwagon. It's great as I get lots of tips as to what's good and tasty and what's not, without having to do the testing.

I have a couple of friends who are trying out juicing or blender drinks (not those kinds). It's an easy way to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet and it takes no time (or cooking) at all. This recipe from Chatelaine is great as it gives you options to try out different variations if you don't like certain foods.

Summer is the perfect time to try out some different variations as they are all light and refreshing.

Cheers to Health!
