Happy 4th of July!!!
As you officially enter the season of summer celebration and picnics, I'd like to challenge you to answer the following question on your road to better health:
Which picnic would your heart rather have?
Typical Picnic "A"
1 oz potato chips
1 charbroiled bratwurst on a bun
1/2 cup traditional coleslaw
1 cup traditional potato salad
Another 1 oz potato chips
2 chocolate brownies
This meal contains 1,485 calories, 90 grams of fat and 150 grams of carbohydrate!
That's equal to 6 tablespoons (over 1/3 cup) of shortening or lard!
4 carrot sticks
4 oz skinless, boneless chicken breast
2 T BBQ sauce
1/2 cup of my Lickety-Split Meals Potato Salad (page 267)
1 cup of my Lickety-Split Meals 5-Bean Salad (page 269)
Fresh fruit for dessert
This meal contains only 525 calories, 12½ grams of fat and 70 grams of carbohydrate!
What a BIG FAT DIFFERENCE!!
Knowledge is power and we have choices!
