This section of my website used to be dedicated to triathlon training, personal race results and certification reviews, like Turbo Kick. I am expanding it to include more generic health & fitness topics. Also, I talk a lot about "D" -- he's my husband (Dave Liu)!

Zero Trans Fat Krispy Kreme Doughnuts!

Once upon a time, I wrote about my disappointment that Krispy Kreme doughnuts contained trans fat. I have a soft spot for these specific sugary concoctions. In fact, my wedding cake was made out of Krispy Kremes, and in moments of weakness, I have been known to buy some, albeit rarely (once every few months).

One such moment came yesterday, and as my husband and I guiltily skulked into the store, I saw a sign saying "0g trans fat". I did a search on the web, and it appears that all their products now contain 0g of trans fat. The Krispy Kreme website also displays a big banner with the same message, along with their new "Zero TFA" TV commercial.

Happy day for me, although there's still enough refined sugar, fat and other stuff in those suckers to be more unhealthy than not!
