I got myself a SPARK PEOPLE WATER BOTTLE to reward myself for working so hard on keeping healthy! Now, I love the design, the containance (a liter) and the lovely blue color, but I am not sure I am going to use it... or even keep it...
Why? Because of that scary label on the bottom...

Exercise is supposed to be good for you, but if/when you drink out of one of those "#7" bottles, you might put your health in jeopardy... So, what is worst? A sedentary lifestyle and clotted arteries, or poisoning from an exercise water-bottle?
Out of 50 states, only the State of California requires by law such a warning label; in other states, you are not even informed that the container you are drinking from could make you sick...
But is warning people of a danger enough? Wouldn't it make more sense to just remove hazardous products from the market when those are known to be dangerous to health?
I have eaten Garden Salad Wraps for all dinners this past Fall and Winter, and I am getting a bit bored with my way of eating lately... I believe it is time for me to introduce a bit of novelty into my diet. Besides, when the weather gets warmer I like to eat my salads for lunches rather than for dinners, so I have also switched things around in my Food Tracker.
I have been searching the internet, and my VEGETARIAN Magazines and books, for new Nutritive Salad Recipes, and I have come up with a few I want to try.
I started with two Spark Recipes that I had bookmarked a little while ago:
I served on a bed of Baby Arugula and wrapped into a Spinach Flat Bread (90 calories only), and it was very refreshing yet filling meal = 471 Calories total - 72 g of Carbs - 16 g of Fat - 21 g of Protein - 21 mg of Iron - 18 mg of Fiber - 14 mg of Magnesium
Served on a bed of Baby Arugula as well, but this time I wrapped into a Low Carb Whole Grain Tortilla Shell (80 calories) = 288 Calories total - 53 g of Carbs - 8 g of Fat - 18 g of Protein - 20 mg of Iron - 25 mg of Fiber - 25 mg of Magnesium
