we decided today we are kicking off August’s 10 day food challenge with lunch at Mellow Mushroom!!
for everybody who has been on a diet before have you ever started it off with pizza?
I love pizza and can argue my point at how wholesome, fresh and nourishing it is for you any time you please
If your “diet” says NO pizza then I’m telling you that you need a new approach to eating lunch
If you’re not busy next Wed please join us for a bite to eat – we always eat good!!
When’s the last time you ate a fast food burger? Are you waiting for ground beef to go on sale at the grocery? Did your kiddos eat at the school cafeteria , have you checked the menu lately?
“Pink Slime” is whats being served in most school districts. The slime is essentially the glue holding the meat together. Its not really glue but it can’t be much worse!!
Saving THREE CENTS a pound off production costs and making $440 million/year in revenue the FDA has allowed the beef industry use fatty slaughterhouse trimmings treated with ammonia as a filler in ground beef.
Is that why some critics say that “red meat” is bad for you?
In January fast food restaurants stopped serving pink slime, I wonder what Bowling Green schools serve, does anybody know?
Here is a quick newscast from Denver I found about the pink slime zqak7r04

Some health officials and fitness experts are wanting to make policy to ban restaurants from including toys in meals that have more than 485 kcals or 600 mg of sodium, and meals that have more than 35% of total kcals from Fat or 10% from added sugar.
I personally am in favor of making healthy options available but I wouldn’t consider a “ban” instead they could eliminate unhealthy options with no toys in favor of the healthy choices with toys?

How bout them apples?
The Subway BMT (bacon, mayonnaise, and tomato) has the highest levels of sodium by far, with a whopping 1900 grams. The Subway Melt, the Coldcut Trio, and the Dijon Horseradish Melt all come in just behind the BMT, with between 1600 and 1800 grams. The average sodium in a Subway sub ranges from 1200-1500 grams, which is still quite a lot for one meal. To make sure not to increase these levels any more than necessary, opt for regular subs rather than “double the meat,” since much of the sodium in a sub is found in the meat, and stick with a 6-inch sub rather than a footlong one.
