Don’t we all hate the lovely lecture of portion sizes? Well, I do. Sometimes I’m just hungry and I want to eat something the size of my head! Usually I want something naughty like a sundae, cookie, or giant plate of cheese fries. But those are doing nothing for my progress, except making it stop. So this weekend I found something as big as my head that was also healthy…
Look at this baby! I mean the apple:)
And ignore the cookies in the background! Those were for Val! I mean, ya I ate 1…ok 3. But I ran 10.5 miles, give a girl a break.
Anyway, back to the apple. It was an enormous Honey Crisp beauty and I just had to have it! It was the best snack ever! It took me seriously 45 minutes to eat it and I even shared a few bites. Apples are such a great low calorie choice. I highly recommend them. A cup of sliced apples has only 60 calories! Plus they have lots of fiber and keep you full longer.
So this apple was probably 3 regular apples.
For about 180 calories I got a fully satisfying snack that kept me full for a long time. Totally kicks those little 100 calorie pack snacks booties.
Go grab some apples ladies and gentlemen! Ooooo and maybe a little pb too:)
