I will post Sundays about items that you might be tempted by and tell you a better alternative without necessarily giving it up completely!
Lets start our first Drop it ~ Swap it with salad from a familiar restaurant: McDonalds
Sometimes we leave the house and don't have time to make a lunch or dinner to bring with us... and when we are left hungry we might have to go to the nearest restaurant. But while there we can make better choices.
I know that when I hear about these things I am shocked by some... the equivalents to section is what really amazes me!
I will use many resources for these Sunday posts but this one is from Rose Reisman.
Mighty Ceasar Salad with Warm Crispy Chicken and Mighty Ceasar dressing
700 cals / 54 g fat / 10 g saturated fat / 1,620 mg sodium
* Equivalent to almost 1 2 litre container of chocolate ice cream in fat
Spicy Thai Chicken Salad with Warm Grilled Chicken and Renee’s Ravin’ Raspberry vinaigrette
290 cals / 7 g fat / 0.7 g sat fat / 750 mg sodium
So there you have it....Please take note not only of the fat content but also the sodium!
Okay so that is a "if your're out" swap but what about an "if you are home" swap.
Tuna packed in oil, 1 can
has the same amount of fat as 17 cans of tuna packed in water! SEVENTEEN!
