04/20/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 21. April 2014 13:03

 

There are those that hold onto the  old-wives tales of “zero calorie foods”.  These are known to be foods that mythically require more energy to digest than they register when you eat them.  Wouldn’t that be great?  The reality is that even if a food is very low in calories (grapefruit, cabbage, celery), the quantity that you would have to eat to zero out the energy burn vs. calories in, would be huge. 

There are some foods that are engineered to be ‘calorie-free’ like sugar substitutes, or Waldon Farms dressings and sauces (the line of dressings that I like the flavor of).  Some people object that the Waldon Farms products don’t jive with the clean eating philosophy that I speak about, but I would rather eat a dressing  that I like the flavor of, and can accept the calorie count of  (ranch can heave a whopping 120 calories to your salad for only 2 tbls.  Do you use 2 tbls. of dressing on your salad?- it’s not much).  I get healthy fat from the Uda Oil I use on my salads and EVOO I use with balsamic vinegar at times.

Bottom line is that you have to enjoy what you eat, but there are ways that you can curb the extra calories that are better spent on more cherry tomatoes, onions, garlic and low fat dairy, just to name a few!
