Golden French Fries...Yummy!

 

Now that summer is nearly over and if you are like me you are settling in for the fall/winter seasons.  Not being as active, how do I deal with my little calorie-rich cravings that I won’t be able to burn off as quickly?  Well, fortunately for me I received in the mail a little gift from the pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline a helpful item called the “Craving Converter”©.  It’s a set of flash cards that I can keep handy to use at a moments notice.  The Craving Converter gives you delicious, healthy choices when cravings seem uncontrollable and these healthy alternatives are approved by a registered dietician.  The information I am sharing you can find in more detail at CravingConverter.com.
