now THIS is a cool book

If you are visiting from Welcome Wednesday this week, THANK YOU!
I am so excited to have been chosen as the spotlight blog of the week -thank you Ladies!
Check out my latest post below...

eating out? then you need THIS!!!
We all have VERY busy lives and sometimes fast food is the ONLY option. I've said before that you must find the healthy options that are available at each restaurant AND practice portion control, because how MUCH we eat can really make a difference!!
When I was teaching health and P.E., I was sent a sample of this book to share with the teachers and students. I think it's incredible and definitely something to have on hand at all times! The book is called, Nutrition in the Fast Lane, the website is HERE!
They list over 3,000 menu items for over 59 restaurants across the U.S! They list their most popular menu items along with nutrition facts and serving sizes for each. What I also love is that they list the carb exchanges for those customers with diabetes.
The BEST part...this book is only $6.95!
**I always look at nutrition facts, I want to know the BEST options for my family BEFORE we go in, and with this small book that fits in my diaper bag or purse
....it's SO easy!
