Filed under: FoodHealth

Healthy Foods Cheap

Everyone out there who claims that healthy food is just too expensive to buy can stop using that as an excuse now.

You literally have no excuses left to get into shape!

A new study is showing that new calculations are being used, replacing outdated data.

Here's what one researcher said:

BREAKFAST. WAFFLE. SANDWICH.

Filed under: Business BlitzHealthFast Food

breakfast waffle sandwich

Jack in the Box, you harsh mistress.

Ch-ch-check out this new abomination deliciously unhealthy sandwich from the fast food joint: the Breakfast Waffle Sandwich!

This would be bigger news, but the McGriddle has been out for quite some time — though, this has “country-grilled sausage” layered between two waffles, sweetened with maple instead of griddles.

So it doesn't matter that the McGriddle has been out so long, because we all know waffles kick the ass of griddles every single day. It's no contest.

The problem, like with all gimmick food, is that it's terrible for you: 479 calories, 33 grams of fat, 11 grams of saturated fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 271 milligrams of cholesterol, 983 milligrams of sodium, 24 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, 6 grams of sugar, and 19 grams of protein.

Luckily, you can justify that because it's just $2.79 plus tax a la carte, or $4.19 plus tax for a combo.

Well, maybe.

Does this look good to U??

Strawberries Are Super Food!

Filed under: FoodHealth

Mmmmm Strawberries

We knew it! We knew it all along!

Strawberries are considered a super food!

They actually contain more vitamin C than citrus fruits, so they're great for helping to ward off colds — and foods rich in vitamin C may lower the risk of cancers of the gastrointestinal tract!

Yuck! Study Shows U.S. Has The SALTIEST Food!

Filed under: FoodHealthFast Food

Ever wonder why fast food tastes so good?

It's the SALT!

Salt and fat. But mainly salt.

A new study has found that the U.S. may have the saltiest food in the entire world!

Researchers looked at popular fast food chains like McDonalds, KFC, Domino's, Subway and more and found that many of their menu items have more sodium in them than they do in other countries.

An example would be when comparing U.S. and U.K. McNuggets.

A British McNugget contains 0.6 grams of sodium per 100 grams of nugget. An American nugget contains 1.6 grams of sodium per 100 grams. That's a full extra gram of salt per nugget in America!

The worst part? It's not just fast food.

Whether it's a fancy restaurant or even the grocery store, we can't escape the sodium.

The study's author said:

"If you go to an expensive restaurant, it is just as unhealthy. You just paid more money for it.

If you go to the grocery store and you buy packaged food, it is just as bad. It’s a much larger issue."

Just a few months ago the Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced that nine out of ten Americans eat too much sodium every day!

So it seems the best we can do is not add so much salt to our eggs/pasta/sandwiches and drink crazy amounts of water to try and balance out all the salt.

QuickFit Tip Of The Day

Pink

Always buy frozen veggies over canned. Canned vegetables can have added sodium, sugars or chemicals (always read the label). Frozen are the next best option (and in some cases, the better option) than fresh!
