fast food

hi, can we talk about fast food for a minute?
i don't care what fast-food restaurant you're ordering from, it's gross & it's bad for you!

i know, i know, chick-fil-a chicken nuggets are delish. and every once in a while, meaning not very often at all, a couple of times a year, it's probably okay to indulge.

too many people in america compromise health for convenience. fast-food restaurants are known for being high in saturated fat & extremely high in sodium. have you ever seen the "super-size me" documentary?!

-fast food is thought to be a major contributor to childhood obesity.
-studies have indicated that damage to arteries occurs almost immediately after consuming a junk-food-type meal. clogged arteries can lead to soooo many health issues.

and don't even get me started on the soft-drinks. terrible.

a lot of fast-food restaurants offer nutrition info on their food packaging or calories on the menu in the restaurant, don't be fooled- restaurants use food that has a lot of preservatives & it just isn't clean eating no matter how you look at it.

bottom line? cook at home as often as possible, this way you know exactly what you are eating.
