I could not wait until tonight to write this!! I have to share now ~ READ LABELS ON EVERYTHING!!!
We had a catered lunch today and they brought in packaged cookies. Big ones! During lunch I declined the cookie as I was full with my mini sandwich and baked chips. This afternoon I felt the cookies draw me to the cafe. I was really thinking about eating one.....Half of one - really I promise!!
But before I opened the package, I turned it around to take a peek at the nutritional content of this delicious snack.
Wholly smokes....It was a whoppin' 470 calories with (20%) 170 fat calories. For one cookie. Even if I only had half and it was unlikely that I could refrain from eating the whole thing, that would be 235 calories for almost nothing!!!!
So not worth it!!!
Here's where the crazy part comes in...I was thinking and I truly was..."Well it's oatmeal, how bad could it be?"
Do you know how long it would take to work of 470 calories. For me...oh about a hour and a half.
NOT WORTH IT!!!
I am currently enjoying a delicious, amazing, delightful apple ~ 80 calories.
