Hello! My name is Juliet, and I live in Northern California. I'm 30 years old and I am very careful about choosing what I eat. I'm well aware of the fact that there are tons of diet foods that people are talking about on the Internet. The problem is: (1) a lot of the food finds are really bad for you when they don't have to be (there are plenty of smart & yummy options out there that don't contain high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols) and (2) the foods people suggest can be very difficult to find in your local area.
About Yummy Diet Food
I decided to create Yummy Diet Food, a place where dieters and calorie conscious people can discover smarter, "better-for-you", low calorie food options for their busy lifestyles or diets without compromising on taste, sweets, or yummy food enjoyment. I use the weight watchers point system to maintain my weight, so I'll note the weight watchers points for each of the foods I recommend.
To be totally clear, none of the foods recommended here are substitutes for fruits and vegetables, but they are better choices than most packaged foods. Some of my suggestions will be more nutritional than others so I created the healthy diet food label for the healthiest options.
Additionally, when I post here, I'll always tell you where I buy what I'm talking about. But, I think it would be even better if the readers of this blog could put other places they find these items in the comments. That will help everyone who reads the blog.
By the way - I don't eat a lot of meat, so this is a vegetarian friendly blog.
Thank you! I look forward to posting many more great diet finds on this blog. I have so many to post, I'm quite excited! Feel free to email me feedback and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
