Most of us know how to choose healthy fare but like carbs too much. Haven’t we been trained from early childhood to enjoy bread, pasta, white potatoes and rice? Notice, I’m not even mentioning cookies which (with other sweet, fatty sugary treats) no longer reside on the Food Pyramid. Here’s what I do when I want to lose weight– I substitute empty carbs with complex healthy ones. We are going to Austin, TX to visit our daughter Marla who is presently living there. When eating out, I’ll order all salad dressing on the side and skip all empty carbs. No bread what-so-ever!
