Fruit Smoothie = "Bad for You"

mojoeater | Jul 31, 2011 08:59 AM

After reading the pizza thread, I had to post is. The other day I told a friend of mine that I had a Smoothie for breakfast. She looked at me askance and said "You'll be so disappointed to know how bad that is for you. All that sugar and calories!" I explained that what I had was just fruit blended with ice. No sweetener. She insisted I was wrong. And this comes from a woman who works out regularly and watches her diet carefully.

I did the math and my smoothie was under 300 calories. How could anyone think that was bad for me?
