IQ: Dumber than a box of rocks
Hello Gang! Happy Monday to ya!
Okay, first off, let me just say that I am an idiot*. No really, it’s true. For some reason, and I have no idea why, I thought that frozen tortellini was somewhat of a low cal healthy food.
I’ll wait while you have a good laugh at that one…
*wipes tears from eyes* Oh gosh I haven’t laughed that hard in a while! I don’t know if it’s because back in the 80’s and early 90’s pasta was considered a “health food”, but I just thought that eating a big ole pile of tortellini would be a good choice for someone like myself who is watching her girlish figure. I was wrong.
WRONG, I SAY!!
According to Nutritiondata.com, 3/4 cup of Cheese-filled Tortillini is 249 calories, which is not so bad. But guess who didn’t have 3/4 cup? Guess who had a lot more than 3/4 cup?!?!
I had 2 cups. Yep, 2 jam-packed cups of torellini with pasta sauce. According to this, I consumed about 700 calories in that one lunch! That’s half of my cals for the WHOLE DING DONG DAY!!
So the moral of the story is: make sure you know what you are putting in your pie hole BEFORE you put it there. That, my friends, is the value of tracking your food!
*I don’t really think I am an idiot. Blissfully ignorant maybe, but not an idiot.
