Food Lies we tell ourselves

I'm sitting here chowing down on a pile of jujubes and gummy bears. So how do I justify this to myself? They are fat free! Made of gelatin which as we all know is protein and important in our diet.

What lies do you tell yourself?

I am certain that the calories expended to chew gummy bears are equal those consumed :)

Yep, that's what I tell myself with every cake I make and decorate with sugary fondant and frosting, or when catering and need to do quality control on everything!

If you do The Microwave Dance while waiting for
your food to cook you burn off the calories

And let's not forget that eating M & M's and drinking diet coke cancels out the calories.
