Confessions of a Trail Mix Lover

Thursday, October 25, 2012

I confess, I absolutely love trail mix (especially if it has yogurt covered fruit and glazed almonds or walnuts...)! But yesterday it took a hold of me and without warning I ate an entire "6" serving bag of the stuff!

Here's the thing with trail mix, because of the nuts it tends to be a high calorie snack. Which normally is ok, because the fat and calories are coming from whole foods so as long as you enjoy it in moderation (one serving at a time, or even a 1/2 serving) its a great snack.

But 6 servings???!!! I dont know what came over me, Ijust kept eating and eating until the bag was gone! But I did get on the treadmil and power walked for 45 minutes even though it was no treadmill day :) From now on, I will have to measure out servings into seperate bags so I dont endlessly eat this stuff!!!!

    Well, at least it was nutritious food. I think what everyone says about not eating directly from the bag is smart advice. Take this as a lesson and move on!

    Good for you. You have a great plan so that there's no "next time".

    The key is not to eat directly from the bag. Next time, take out a serving and eat it in another container to prevent from eating the whole bag. It happens to the best of us once in a while, though! Don't beat yourself up too much!
