Reading Carbs on a Nutrition Label
Reading a nutrition label can be challenging. Here is how to read the carb value on a nutrition label, and some real life examples of labels with their values.
Frey Bittersweet Chocolate
Bittersweet chocolate is the best type of chocolate for you - low in sugar, high in antioxidants and other chocolate goodness. The Frey Bittersweet chocolate has a lovely flavor - but their label has a blatant error!
Sugar Free Fudge Striped Shortbread Cookies
Interbake Foods has come out with a Splenda-sweetened Sugar Free Fudge Striped Shortbread Cookies set, sold through WalMart. At about $2 for 28 cookies, it's a good treat if you need a chocolate fix.
MGD Light 64 Calories
MGD Light - Miller Genuine Draft Light 64 calories is one of the lowest carb beers on the market. With only 2.4g of carbs per serving, and zero fat, this is a great alternative for beer drinkers who are looking to lose or maintain weight.
Edamame - Soybean Beans
Edamame are soybean beans, typically grown in Japan and China. These green, ovalish treats have only 5g net carbs per serving - and also provide 4g of fiber.
Ken's Italian Dressing
A number of food items are naturally healthy and good for you. Italian dressing is one - all it is is oil and vinegar, plus a few herbs. Ken's Italian Dressing in its natural form has only 1g of carbs per serving.
Smoked Salmon Appetizer
This delicious appetizer is like a 7-layer cake, only it's salmon and veggies.
Genocide! Book Review
Genocide, a book about eating healthy by avoiding sugar, has a subtitle of "how your doctor's dietary ignorance will kill you!!!!" That quadruple exclamation point gives you an indication of how this book will read.
EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale
One of the greatest challenges in eating healthily involves really knowing what you are eating. This EatSmart scale does an awesome job. Just plunk the food item onto it - in whatever quantity you wish - enter its code and the numbers show up instantly!
Pillsbury Reduced Sugar Lemon Cake Mix
I admit it. I normally am a fan of chocolate cake, and wouldn't make a lemon cake. However, we gave this a try with chocolate frosting and it was REALLY good. Highly recommended for any cake fans who want to watch their weight too!
