While vacationing in Yosemite National Park, I was in a long, slow moving line for the bathroom. While waiting, I noticed a group of women ahead of me. It didn’t take long to notice two things about them: they were from Europe and they were skinny. They looked fit, healthy and vibrant. What do the Europeans know that Americans don’t? Maybe one of their secrets could be found in one of the ladies’ hands. She was holding a raw carrot stick.
Not a 100-calorie snack pack of cookies. Not a bag of potato chips. A carrot.
Let me ask you a question. If I saw you in line snacking, what would be in your hand? If there was a 24-hour survellience camera zoomed in on you, what list of foods would the camera capture? A convicting thought for sure!
So when it’s time to reach for a snack, think of those skinny Europeans and grab a nice juicy fruit or vegetable. Go carrots!
