I LOVE Halloween so today I’m all about having fun and digging into as much candy as my heart desires. Stay safe and enjoy yourselves!

Banana vs. Kit Kat

Let’s say, hypothetically, that a banana and a kit-kat bar are both 100 calories.

Banana = 100 calories full of natural sugar, healthy carbs, fiber and potassium.
Kit-Kat = 100 calories of processed sugar, hydrogenated oils, and artificial flavorings

Calories are not the enemy. You need calories to survive and function properly. It’s the nutritional value of those calories that matter - things like sugar and fat are the real culprits you should avoid. You’re much better off feeding your body a 600 calorie meal of lean protein, vegetables and whole grains instead of a 300 calorie frozen pizza.

Don’t focus on the quantity, focus on the quality of your food.
