This is a great post. A mental tally of calories is so helpful when you think "would I rather have that small single serving bag of tortilla chips, or an entire veggie stir fry?

I have to giggle because I number of the foods listed as vegetables are actually fruits.

See, this is part of why I have no trouble maintaining my weight...I eat a LOT of fruits and veggies--mostly veggies. I can fill up on them without having to precisely measure portions and not have to worry too much about how many calories they contain.

I also love this post. I feel even better now about my cucumber and red pepper passions. Seriously, three red peppers? Crazy. I'm surprised that even the corn is that low cal. Hooray!

LOVE this post. Thank you so much. Please, please do a fruit edition! Even now, a full year into my healthy eating lifestyle change I still struggle with moderation (I'll snack too heavily on a 'healthy' item, one pound of baby carrots isn't a practical snack) or I am too strict and overly restrict myself (I actually start counting the calories in each individual baby carrot and record it in my food journal). I am searching for that healthy balance. This helps to put in perspective just what 100 calories looks like, I don't need to guilt trip myself for having half a zucchini in my salad. I don't need to run to the computer to find the exact number, I cna eye ball it a little better.
