Beware the”Healthy” Choices!!

Ok, so you had a light breakfast (a no-no in my book) and it is 9am and you are hungry. You stop by a local convenience store to grab a water and a snack. They have Breakfast burritos and breakfast sandwiches and hot fresh donuts. You also see a small Sausage, egg and cheese wrap….”hmmm, shouldn’t be to bad!” About the size of a slice of cheese and no thicker than a quarter as seen in the picture above! You start to put it in your mouth but something in your brain says, “READ THE LABEL!!!” And this is what it said….

450 calories, 28g fat, 1235 mg sodium, 34 carbs, 1 fiber, 14g protein

How many times have we been caught doing this? Thinking we are making right choices and BOOM….Sometimes we turn a blind eye to it and hope it will be ok but is it? We are accountable to ourselves when it comes to making the right choices and we MUST, if we want to succeed, do whatever it takes to become more healthy even if it means we have to take a few seconds to read labels! 🙂
