WOW! 1 year slipped up on me fast! I was working on a post and came across the picture of my “buttercups” above… and I remembered that I used it on my very 1st blog post ever. Since I picked those flowers to take the picture and all the daffodils are in bloom around here right now, I knew the time was close. Looked it up and BAM, March 17th, 2018, I hit publish on my very 1st Grandnanny’s House post!
My healthy weight loss journey has included an extensive food-ucation. I have learned more food facts and figures than I ever knew before. WHY?? Because I have to know what I am looking at when I turn a product over and read the nutrition information and ingredient list. For example, I now know how many fat grams are in a teaspoon of olive oil, 9g. With that information, I can figure out how much olive oil is in my favorite pasta sauce. When I studied the numbers for low sugared cereal, I figured out that I want to stay under 5g of sugar per serving of any whole grained cereal…
