Wild Woman Wednesday

Wild Women are wise! We research, read and make it a point to know what’s going on.

Today, I’d like you to exercise your savvy sleuth muscles as you read this expose on the “lighter” side of McDonald’s 400-calorie “meals”. It was put out by Prevention Magazine, and truly does reveal the “interpretation” of what is considered a meal – a box of French fries? A McFlurry? Hmmm… check it out here:

Instead, why not surf over to Real Simple and find a whole month of recipes that are 400-calorie dinners like Steak with Golden Zuccini, or Gnocchi with Roasted Califlower, or Turkey Meat Loaf with Mashed Potatoes? That’s a LOT more healthy, filling and satisfying than fast food anyday!

While I’m not saying that you should never eat fries, what I am saying is that (1) always be mindful of what you’re eating, (2) factor the nutrition value and caloric intake into your daily calorie budget, and (3) always shoot for a balanced plate. Fries alone are NOT your best meal choice!
