So, this is the commercial I heard on the radio this morning.
Chicken for breakfast...from McDonald's. Hmmmmm, It is actually a Southern Style Chicken Biscuit that they are serving. That brings up the concept of chicken fried steak and lots of gravy. One of those breakfast I have been fortunate enough not to like but I know people who always order it.
I then had to look up the nutritional info on line, because that is the way my mind works these days.
So here it is...
Total: 420 calories; 20 g of fat; 8 g of saturated fat; 1 g of trans fat; 35 mg of cholesterol; 1200 mg of sodium; 41 g carbohydrates; 2 g dietary fiber; 18 g protien
For those counting points that would be 10 of them. Yikes!!!!
I am amazed at the newer, "better tasting" items that are being created. I actually have no doubt that this will probably be a popular item as my husband is famous for ordering things like that but at the same time, I am slightly appalled. We wonder where we went wrong when most of our nation (including me and a lot of my family) are overweight or obese. Why we are fighting heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. This is truly one of those "yuck" moments for me.
Oh well, thank goodness for sites like Roni's (Roni's page) and her green lites bites (which I don't have the link for, sorry) or swizzles page (Swizzlepops meal ideas) or the Hungry Girl site and cookbook Hungry Girl Cookbook, mothers day and self control (which I reviewed in a previous blog). These are all places I go to get old favorites with a new healthy twist.
Where do you go?
