Slim Jims are on the top of my list as some of worst foods (health-wise) that you can possibly eat. Processed, nitrite-filled meat product=terrible for health.
Anyway, we had a fun tubing day for Father’s Day.
And my Dad and brother insisted the day called for some Slim Jims.
They insisted that they only eat Slim Jims about 5 times total per year, so it was OK. What I was more bothered by was the Race Track convenient store we stopped at. It was the biggest gas station store I have ever been in. Packed with all kinds of processed junk foods. Pretty much a dietitian’s nightmare.
The good thing is that these mega convenient stores usually carry some fruit cups, fresh fruit, nuts, trail mixes, and carrot sticks. The problem is you just have to stay focused and go straight to the healthy choice.
I decided to go with some pretty plain coffee… it took will power to avoid the mega wall of froyo aka yogurt sugar food.
When we got home, Psycho Holiday Baker was at it again. This time, she was cooking an amazing Father’s Day feast.
Homemade empanadas which she said took her 2 hours to make! Very filling and impressive, but not so healthy.
Shrimp pasta and chicken pasta all Italian style for dinner:
These cute and tasty desserts:
Mason jars filled with angel food cake, strawberries, lemon juice, blueberries, homemade whipped cream, and toasted coconut. They were a big hit! And a light, healthy dessert option.
Have a good week!
