{March 5, 2012}   Eat Right; Be Healthy

Dieting is a learned habit. Over time, people learn the “right” and “wrong” ways to diet, and use that to shape their healthy eating during their lives. But oftentimes, what we learn about food isn’t necessarily correct, and many so-called “good” and “bad” foods are mistakenly placed in the wrong categories. Take peanut butter, for example. It’s not a secret that this creamy treat famous for it’s addition to PB&J’s is full of fat. But what many people don’t know is that, in moderation, it’s an excellent food for your body. It has protein, fiber, magnesium, potassium, and quite a few other nutrients. So it seems, peanut butter is one of those guilty pleasures that might not be as guilty as you think. Another food many people shy away from while on a diet is popcorn. Oftentimes, the word “popcorn” conjures up images of that heavily buttered movie treat that leaves us feeling bloated and guilty. But eating un-buttered popcorn is actually a healthy treat with fiber to keep you full longer. Try a single serve pack of Orville Redenbacher’s Smart Pop; with only 100 calories and 2 grams of fat, it’s a great snack to keep you feeling good with your diet, and happy with your waistline. For an even better snack, try air-popping popcorn. This allows you to control the seasonings and make your snack even healthier.
