Mrs. Chan's Healthy Holiday Eating!

Mrs. Chan is concerned that everyone have a happy Thanksgiving but she worries about everyone eating healthily.

So Mrs. Chan is passing along some handy guidelines to help us get past our national Turkey Day with little to no problem:

1. Foods that are frozen have no calories because calories are units of heat.
EXAMPLES: Ice Cream, frozen pies, and popsicles.

2. Foods that have the same color have the same number of calories, e.g. spinach and pistachio ice cream; mushrooms and white chocolate.
NOTE: chocolate is a universal color and maybe substituted for any other food color without increasing caloric content.

3. Things licked off knives and spoons have no calories if you are in the process of preparing something.
EXAMPLES: Peanut butter on a knife when making a sandwich, ice cream on a spoon when making a sundae.

Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody!
