Just a general food tip

All breads are not created equal, and just because it says “wheat” bread, doesn’t mean it’s any better nutritionally for you than any other bread. The key to healthy bread is calories per slice and fiber grams per slice. “Whole wheat” is a good indicator to look for initially, but in the end, if you buy something that is less than 3 grams of fiber per slice, then you’re getting too much sugar and calories from your processed white flours.

Amazingly, for taste, fiber, calories, and nutritional value, we’ve been using “Whitewheat” bread… the bread marketed for kids who won’t eat “that brown wheat bread.” It had more fiber than most bread marked “wheat”, added calcium and iron — two great things for women of all ages, and it’s one of the lower calorie per slice breads.

And, be wary of mayonnaise for fat and calories… look at the labels for a good mix of lower calorie/lower fat versions of your favorite brand.

And, once again, all lunch meats are not created equal. Lean cuts, in roasted or smoked are lowest in calories and fat.

And don’t forget the many wonderful baked Lays options to round out your lunch!
