i'm in love with granola. i've been eating it with my yogurt the last week or two and it's wonderful. i bought the hannaford brand because apparently you have two choices for granola in bar harbor: store brand or hippie. and the store brand is a hell of a lot cheaper. and i've been loving the store brand. it's so yummy. and today i figured out why. 13 grams of sugar per serving. it only took me two weeks to read the back of the box. jeepers. 13 grams. no wonder it's so good. so, as soon as it's gone i'll be buying the hippie granola from the health food store. at roughly the cost of my soul per ounce.
it's one of those realizations that not everything that you think is good for you is. my sister and i have this argument every time we talk about coke and diet coke. she can't believe i drink coke. the real thing with all the sugar. i admit it's not a great choice, and i've been having more than i should. but it still amounts to about 5 cans a month, maybe six. she drinks 2 or 3 diet cokes a day. A DAY! for the love of god, how can that be better for you than full sugar coke 5 times a month. but this is the essence of my sister. she would rather have the shake for breakfast, the shake for lunch and a cake for dinner than give up on the cake altogether. but then she fears being fat more than i do. because she's skinnier.
i don't have alot of diet food in my house. only the splenda from my south beach adventure. i don't like it and i don't like eating chemicals if i don't have to. it's not the food's fault i have more than i should. so we will continue to argue the point about coke and diet coke. diet may keep down the calories but i defy her to find it better for you than regular. as if such a question is even worth being asked.
