Real Food vs. Fast Food, a Nutritional Comparison

Blog No Comments

Every fast food joint these days has its “healthy options.”  Even the worst offender *cough….McDonalds….cough* has oatmeal on the menu.  (Never mind that their blueberry banana oatmeal has more calories than their hamburger. Source)  Still, because it’s not made at home and it is made to be fast, do you really know–like KNOW–what you’re getting? Read More

Tips For Avoiding The Fast Food Trap!

Blog 9 Comments

You know how it goes, don’t you?  You set off to run a couple errands.  It ends up taking much longer than expected (a pox on that silly DMV!) and your kids start saying, “Mom/Dad, I’m hungry!”  Or perhaps like Winnie the Pooh you get a little rumbly in your tummy.  You look at the clock in the car.  Eek.  It’s an hour past your usual lunch time.  And you still have to hit the post office and the library.  There’s no way everyone will be able to make it without a major melt-down from the low blood sugar at some point.  Not a pleasant prospect.  So, you weigh your options and decide to drive through the closest fast food joint.  Once the kids are happily munching their fries and you have had your sugar and/or caffeine fix, you continue your errands.  Unfortunately, there still comes that melt-down in line at the post office due to a rapid sugar crash once those empty carbs are rapidly burned up.  And truth be told you’re not in the best condition to deal with the tantrum yourself–being that you are also experiencing a sugar crash headache.

What a trap.  Duped again! Read More
