Seafood! Nix the Fix Review and Water!
Just a quick picture of our very healthy seafood feast we had over the weekend! Come to N. Spain to visit me and we will serve you up some increadible seafood!
Nix the Fix Review -
This is just one week without sugar and bad carbs, but remember there are a lot of options out there and we should try to live this way for life!
Maltitol is in a lot of products. ie. my no sugar added chocolate!!! It is a sugar alcohol. It goes into the blood stream much slower. It is used by diabetics and in a lot of products now. As far as I know it does not have the same affects as aspertame. We just have to watch the empty calories in the desserts it comes in. ;)
A natural sugar substitute is Stevia. It is sweeter than sugar, but I have heard they have come out with a new form that does not have the bad after taste of the previous version.
If you are unable to get these products or things sugar free, try eating more fruit or even cheese for a snack. Cheese can contain a lot of fat so if you can get light that is even better.
I realize that many can´t get the same choices or they are more expensive. Please, don´t fret. The 10 points are yours if you can eat even healthier than before. Basically cutting out the pastries and junk food (soda is a junk food and we should really limit the diet soda too to one a week)
That is the main jist of Nix the Fix. ;)
I hope this helps.
Don´t forget to put your points for water- I almost did forget to put them today. I will include water points to the end of the challenge. 2 points for 2 liters of water Kind of wonderful that water is so wonderful! ;)
Springing with ya,
