Food Shopping

What We Eat.

Because we eat less we now eat more quality foods, one thing we have concentrated on is avoiding excess sugar, yes sugar. My favorite sauce in ketchup but when i looked at the label I amazed by just how much sugar was in there, so my replacement is mushroom & cherry tomatoes heated together as a substitute.

What i would say is with some foods like nuts which are good for you but high in calories, its worth knowing that a 25 gram portion can have almost 200 calories in it. As an exercise weigh a 25 gram portion so your aware.
