It's funny how when you are young and in school you can't wait until it's over with, but being back in school (just one class, but still) now, makes things so different. As I was sitting in class last night I realized how interested I was in every single word the professor was saying, and it actually made me mad to look over at the girl texting and the guy behind her that didn't even have out a pen! Needless to say, I'm so happy with my decision to take this class, and I think I'm really going to get a lot out of it. I want to start a "Thoughts for Thursday" post every week so I can share a little piece of what I learned in class with everyone. Something that really stuck with me after yesterday's class was that cholesterol in food doesn't really raise your cholesterol levels. I have read time and time again that you should not eat egg yolks, or limit them because of how much cholesterol is in the egg. Well come to find out, it is actually saturated fat that raises your cholesterol far more than cholesterol itself does. Not saying I'm going to start throwing back more egg yolks now, but it's good to know they really aren't the culprit behind high cholesterol.
Here's what my food is looking like for today...
Cottage cheese with PP and blueberries
Carrots, Zucchini, and edamame with a teeny bit of hummus.
Hope everyone's having a great Thursday, it's almost the weekend! :)
