Tasty Tuesday Tummy Threats!

In an age when we generally know more about health and wellness than ever before, some things still amaze me.  Deep fried Twinkies.  Fried pickles.  And now this:  a sloppy joe sandwich made with Krispy Kreme donuts.  I’m not kidding, I can’t make this stuff up.  Seriously – are you TRYING to commit suicide slowly?  Death by sloppy joes?  Check it out here:

Then, “Eat This, Not That!” tell us about seven simple ways to save 700 calories by showing us some amazingly BAD choices that are being offered by restaurants.  Frankly, some of these should be evidence enough to take the restaurant to court for manslaughter!!!  Just to put things in perspective here – one pound is equal to 3,500 calories.  Knowing that, if you ate an additional 700 calories for five days in a row, just five little days, you would gain one pound.  Conversely, if you eliminated 700 calories a day from your intake (through a combination of exercise and some healthy calorie-elimination), you could actually LOSE one pound in five th.  Here’s the link:

Oh yes, let’s not forget the Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger, the heart attack hat trick of these culinary calorie culprits!  It’s a glazed donut with a hamburger patty, processed cheese, bacon and a fried egg.   Read it and feel your cholestoral rise…

Instead of wondering what’s in your wallet, perhaps a better question today would be what’s in your food?  Now… howzabout a nice juicy fresh greens salad with nothing-on-earth-better-than Jersey tomatoes and a big ol' glass of super-cold water with lemon?  After reading this, all I really want is something clean and green on my plate, and in my body!!!
