Sugar is sweet, sugar is delicious, sugar is lovely but sugar can be so terribly bad for you. How much sugar is in foods and drinks you love? Like a soda or orange juice or cereal or even baked beans? Sugar is everywhere! That white cocaine powder adds up. BuzzFeed made a video visualizing the actual grams of sugar in each food and to see the actual snuff is dizzying. Fruit Loops over “healthy” cereal everyday now!
While searching for vegetarian food during my travels in Oregon, I found a great vegetarian restaurant in Bend called Cafe Yumm located in the Old Mill District.
Their entire menu is all about healthy eating and they have a very good variety and selection of good for you foods.
I tried grilled tempah for the very first time (it’s interesting) and I also had their Cafe Yumm Bowl which consisted of brown rice, black beans, olives, tomatoes, cheese, avocados and salsa. I honestly think that was the most healthy bowl of good for me food I’ve ever had, and it was delicious!
Here’s a photo of what I call a light lunch.
Tuna (not tuna salad) half sandwich with side salad and vinegarett dressing, less then 400 calories.
After the start of the new year I really started paying attention to menus and food choices and found it is possible to eat healthy when dining out. It’s all a matter of making the right healthy choices.
Many restaurants now offer healthy selections somewhere on their menus, you just need to look for them and observe calorie counts and nutritional balance in the meals you are ordering.
To my amazement I was even able to find healthy choices at Red Robbin Restaurant which is known for their burgers. I had a turkey croissant sandwhich with a side of black beans instead of fries that was very good.
The worse thing to eat is french fries, avoid them as often as possible, they are around 300-400 calories just for a side of fries.
