Counting Calories A New Adventure: Google and Aunt Millies Bread


Okay, so I have been looking at labels once again.

Since I started looking at how many calories I consume daily I have lost three pounds! Not sure where! The clothes don't seem any looser :( but the scale seems to be telling me the truth.

I was very shocked to see that some of my favorite things were on the "oh don't go there list"!

Like rice for instance. One portion is about 238 calories! So my guess is that I will make a recipe with more veggies and less rice? Eating rice is not like eating a portion of fried chicken it's the calories from fat right? Unless you are an expert in the calorie department I recommend checking out this free service from Google:


This little counter from Google is a wonderful little calculator that lets you type in the food item and it produces the item as well as similar items and the calories. Best of all it's just FREE! You don't even have to sign up or log in ;)



I did find a item to share with you all while starting this little adventure! Aunt Millies's Light Whole Grain Bread. No High Fructose Corn Syrup and it's only 35 Calories Per Slice. Another bonus is that it has 3 grams of Fiber per slice.. yipee! We eat a lot of bread in our house and it has always been some sort of "wheat". After reading the ingredients (the first five which are the most important) it contains: water, whole grain wheat flour, sugar cane fiber, wheat gluten, corn starch and yeast. Dr. Oz says the first five are the most important. So I am not so sure about the "sugar cane fiber" but you bet I will find out and let you know ;)

Happy Calorie Counting ;)
