12/03/12- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 4. December 2012 08:00
There are so many temptations everywhere we are, especially during the holidays; parties, shopping, dinner at Grandma's.
Food courts, are horrible offenders. They fry, sauce and glaze everything!  A big cinnamon roll can have 850 calories, and even a plain soft pretzel can have 340 calories.  See if there is a deli sandwich and split a sandwich with a friend with no mayo, a load with dark lettuce,, tomato, and pickles.  Or try to hit a real restaurant in the mall where you can get a grilled piece of salmon, and some steamed broccoli. 
At a party, the temptation is much more 'in your face'.  The worst mind-field of appetizers and cocktails seem harmless but gathered together, they can up your total calorie needs in a couple of hours, to equal that of your whole day!  Try to move toward the shrimp cocktail, the prosciutto-wrapped melon,  the caviar, and the raw veggy platter.
