06/25/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

      Many people enjoy pre-mixed yogurts, but they can be filled with sugar, which reduces the overall benefits of yogurt. Even a low-fat version of fruit-flavored yogurt can be filled with 3 grams of fat, and up to 47 grams of sugar.  The American Heart Association recommends for a 2000 calorie a day food plan,  that 125 grams of sugar should be the upper limit.  That ‘one’ breakfast food takes up a large part of your daily intake.

            Try creating your own by taking the non-fat plain yogurt (or look at sugar content in the vanilla flavor),  or 0% Greek yogurt (my favorite). Then you can add your favorite fresh fruit and sprinkle high-fiber, low- calorie breakfast cereal, ground flax seed for fiber or pecans for added healthy fat and protein.

            It’s a clean eating solution to create a healthy, low calorie, low- sugar breakfast, snack, or dessert.

* Tip of the Day:

Having 5-6 small meals a day increases your metabolism, burn calories and helps you balance your blood sugar levels.
