I always thought Shabu Shabu and Yogurtland were healthy alternatives to restaurants and ice cream shops!?
Yesterday a friend and I decided to return to one of out favorite restaurants we hadn't been to in a year or so, a couple cities away for some delicious and what we thought was healthy Shabu Shabu. We calculated and figured-how bad could boiling paper thin meat and vegetables in water be?? I will admit we were served a bowl of rice with our meals and 5-7 thick udon noodles; but nevertheless I thought I would leave with a belly full of healthy, low calorie foods.
Literally next door to Shabu Shabu is Yogurtland. If you're unfamiliar, it's only the BEST yogurt shop I have ever come across. It has oodles of flavors, toppings like mocci, and mango and is self serve :) *happy* My favorite combination (which I also was under the impression was healthy) is plain tart yogurt, fresh cut strawberries, raspberries and a spoon full of coconut flakes.
I mean howww many calories can that be??? Not enough to tip the scale right???
Maybe it was the combination of Shabu Shabu and yogurt that did me in; but when I woke up this morning and feared the scale I was a solid pound heavier :( :( :(
What am I doing wrong? Am I confused or in denial about the calories in these foods? Any knowledge or advice would be lovely! xx
Have a great weekend <3
