Food for Thought Friday
Many foods marketed as healthy can contain lots of calories, fat, and/or sugar. And, for some, the portion sizes are pretty puny. Sometimes you may think you're doing the right thing, but other choices can be better, especially if you are trying to lose weight.

For instance, I LOVE granola, but serving sizes are usually about 1/4 cup and they can pretty much blow my fat and carb goals for the day. Plus, I know I won't stop at one serving. A better swap could be oatmeal or less-dense cereals.

Fruit products - juices, acai bowls, etc. - can contain tons of sugar. A better option would be a cup of berries or a piece of fruit.
