01/12/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Monday

I seem to be inundated with magazines, books and periodicals that are bringing to light the ludicrously high calorie and salt counts in processed and restaurant foods.

In the Stouffer’s entre, chicken parmagiana, there are 400 calories and 900 mg. of sodium with 14gm. of fat. WOW!  Chipolte meat burritos have 1700 calories.  That’s more than I eat all day.

Try making a tuna salad sandwich at home from water packed tuna, low fat mayonnaise, or low fat vanilla yogurt, with sweet pickles or red pepper flakes and cut up celery,  crunchy pea pods, or red sweet peppers.  You can add any flake spices that you love to make it just the way you like.  Make sure to have it with whole wheat crackers, pita, or bread instead of white for a healthy whole grain additive to your daily diet.  Lay spinach or lettuce leaves on the top for a vegetable addition.  When you do this you are in control of the calorie count and it saves you lots of money over time!

If you want a salad, most groceries or organic markets have well stocked salad bars.  Just steer away from things on the bar made with mayonnaise, and look for olive oil and vinegar to use or a lemon wedge for your dressing. If you are at the grocery, go to the Diabetic aisle for low sugar, sometimes calorie free dressings.   2 tablespoons or ranch or Caesar and equal the same calorie count as the salad!
