   A Potato is Still A Potato
 By Keyuna Milam
M aking the right choices when it comes to eating can be very hard. You may seek items that you heard work well or should be staples in a healthy diet to guide you along the way. It is encouraged to do your own research. You want to be cautious of things labeled as “healthy”. Often times there are “extra” of other ingredients to make up for the
missing ingredient.
Have you noticed that the products that
are currently considered “healthy” coincide with the latest diet fads? This is not an accident. Majority of the products of the past just got a new face lift to continue their product sales. What this means to you is that you might think that you’re eating well but, not so much. Things like protein bars and shakes/ smoothies would possibly be a “go to” for someone who is trying to make
healthier choices. Smoothies and shakes are good when made with the proper ingredients. A shake/ smoothie made with more fruit, whole milk or more protein than you require is not the best option on a regular basis. You may stop eating french fries and replace them with sweet potato fries because you read or heard that sweet potatoes were healthier than white potatoes. Fact is “A potato is still a potato! “
Remember the basics. Eating bread, potatoes and pasta will not help with the scale or to have a flat belly. Example: You see a commercial for a spinach wrap advertising it as a “healthier” option; it is still made with flour. Rule of thumb, limit all items containing flour. This includes things like whole wheat bread, crackers and veggie pasta. Unless you make veggie noodles, it’s still pasta. Even things like sweet potatoes,
whole wheat items and spinach wraps need to be had in moderation. Bread is bread.
Moderation of items that you enjoy and foods that are also good for you should be a part of your regular diet. This way you are not depriving yourself of things that you enjoy while eating a balanced diet.
