The Good, the Bad, and the Glazed

What good is a Friday if you can't live life on the edge. Despite my cholesterol, and general concern about health/weight, I gave into temptation and had a wonderful glazed donut at a meeting this morning.

Later this afternoon, I got curious and checked the Nutrition Data site, to get the "skinny" - bad choice of words - on glazed donuts.

In addition to calories (114 per oz), fats (total 6g, sat 2g), and cholesterol (6mg), they have a Good/Bad chart. I found this one heartening:

The Good
This food is very low in Cholesterol.

The Bad
A large portion of the calories in this food come from sugars.

See - - glazed donuts are not bad for cholesterol after all!

This just in (also on the site), M&M to Release Dark Chocolate Version - yumm!
