Did you hear the news? Nutella... not so nutritious after all!

MMMhhh a long time coming!

There is an article on the Globe and Mail today about Nutella backing off 'balanced breakfast' claims after being hit with a $ 3-million dollar lawsuit. Fascinating isn't it... I wonder who will be next?

Don't get me wrong... I grew up on this stuff! used to love it... but it didn't love me very much.

I love chocolate, I love deliciousness but in today's world there are plenty of other ways to get it than the high fat, modified ingredients kind of way. Seek the things you love that love you back in return! no matter what the ads say! We live in a world where there is plenty of misleading marketing going around.. so read the fine print... yea .. the one below the fine print "printed" on the label.

Did you know “Nutella contains over 55 per cent processed sugar, the consumption of which has been shown to cause type 2 diabetes and other serious health problems. Indeed, the serving size, 2 tablespoons, contains 200 calories, 11 grams of fat – 3.5 of which are saturated fat (18 per cent of your daily recommended value) – and 21 grams of sugar,” 

Did you know "Nutella contains little protein and consists primarily of sugar and modified palm oil"...

Food for thought, isn't it?

I thought I would brighten up your day...
