Too much wedding planning going on so this will be a short one. Veggie compliance is going well. My effort to make one veggie thing a day is really paying off. I'm certainly not even close to the recommended servings yet but, at least I'm getting the green stuff in there! Not easy for an American on the go!
While throwing out a bunch of corn syrup/ dextrose laden candy last week, there were a couple of things I didn't throw out. Turns out most candy from China/Japan is only made with little-no corn product and...get this....millet! Yes!!! The highly beneficial MILLET is the main ingredient in most "Hello Kitty" and other direct from Asia candies I'm finding. Definately still filled with enough neutrals and sometimes avoids to not make it a MAIN dietry source of grain goodness but.....a beneifical food in candy!!! Hurrah!!! God bless Hello Kitty! As always, be sure to check the ingredient labels - this won't go for all things Asian. But millet fruit candy is probably better than that Kit-Kat or Ju-Ju-Bee's.....in small quantites as a treat, of course. (No, a mound of millet candy is not a healthy side dish with the salmon and broccoli, sorry....)
