Take a look at our new poster - 100 Calorie Snack Packs. We were so surpised at the difference in size between the portions of calorie-dense "snacks" like cookies, bagels, donuts and chips, and all of the fruits and nonfat light yogurt. For 100 calories of carrots, apples, grapes, oranges, celery, berries and a banana you get to eat a larger portion than with cookies.
And here is one pic we took for fun - 100 calories of lettuce! Imagine if most people chose that more often than chips! They would not even be able to finish 100 calories of lettuce in most cases.
And that is precisely our point with this poster - which item would make you feel more full? It is not easy to eat just 100 calories of chips - but it is more likely that you will feel full after just one apple which is only 70-80 calories!
Judy’s passion for cooking began with helping her grandmother make raisin oatmeal for breakfast. From there she earned her first food service job at 15, was accepted to the world famous Culinary Institute of America at 18 (where she graduated second in her class), and went on to the Fachschule Richemont in Switzerland where she focused on pastry arts and baking. But after learning that the quality of a croissant directly varies with how much butter it has, Judy sought to challenge herself by coming up with recipes that were as healthy as they were tasty.
Judy received The Culinary Institute of America’s Pro Chef II certification, the American Culinary Federation Bronze Medal, Gold Medal, and ACF Chef of the Year. Her enthusiasm for eating nutritiously and deliciously leads her to constantly innovate and use the latest in nutritional science to guide her creativity, from putting new twists on fajitas to adapting Italian brownies to include ingredients like toasted nuts and cooked honey. Judy’s publishing company, Food and Health Communications, is dedicated to her vision that everyone can make food that tastes as good as it is for you.
