My Christmas Wish for You
It's vital for a family trying to live healthy since learning portion size at a young age will be vital to helping our next generation.
It's also a vital tool for those of us trying to lose weight. I've been thinking about this post this week because of an experience I had.
I was trying to add a little protein to my breakfast of cheerios and banana. I decided some milk with chocolate protein powder would be a great idea. So I pulled out my shaker, did a 4oz. milk 4 oz. water ratio and then got the protein out. It's been a while since I had used the chocolate so I looked to see how much a serving was. The label said: Serving Size 1 Heaping Scoop (39 g)
Hmmm, this scoop is really big. So I pulled out my scale and stuck it on there. It was closer to 55 g. Wooza. That would be a lot more calories than I wanted. So I adjusted the serving to what I really wanted.
No wonder it's so hard to know exactly how many calories are in things. They are giving an estimate sometimes...ahh, it can be so frustrating. I had this happen with baked chips too.
So, if I could buy one for each of you I would. It serves so many purposes.
Here is the challenge. I want you to tell us about what you'd want to gift to each of us because it makes your life easier. It can be your favorite drinking cup or cooking instrument, your favorite DVD or cook book. It can be whatever you wish we all had because you love it so much....scriptures don't count. I don't think there is a single one of us that doesn't have them :-)
I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
