They say knowledge is power but sometimes it just drives me crazy!
- Going out to get a quick bite to eat does not work for me anymore. I can't just go through a normal drive through. I know way to much about what is in the food or drink. I have to drive way out of my way, spend way to much money on a "better" choice and then just to think to much about what that food is missing or not missing for that matter.
- Meat, yeah I will not go there but let me just say all the old enjoyment gone.
- Buying fruits and veggies from the grocery store. Worrying about where it comes from, how far it was shipped, was it picked before it was ripe, what was sprayed on it?
- Feeling guilty for sharing a lemonade at Costco today with my girls. First that I was drinking it and the second what was I thinking to give this to my daughters. Especially when I see it says sugar free. Most people would see that and think oh good less calories or good no sugar for my kids. Yeah I start thinking about all the fake sugar that is in there that is even worse than real sugar. But I can't get the sprite because it has HFCS in it. So which is worse? Fake sugar or HFCS.
Really I could go on and on. I am realized that the more I learn about food the more crazy I get. I know the saying everything within moderation but I am a all or nothing kind of person. Sometimes I just wish there was a off switch and I could enjoy the ice cream sandwich my husband brought home the other night without over thinking it.
