Donna and I went to a restaurant the other night. The menu was speckled with admonitions like:
LC – Low Cholestorol
HH – Heart Healthy
LS – Low Sodium
PF – Peanut Free GF – Gluten Free And so on
Wouldn’t it be refreshing to see legends like FFF for “Fat Fat Fat” or HS for “Heart Stopper” or LC for “Loaded with Cholesterol” or MSS – “More Salt than Siberia.” How about CG – “Calories Galore.” I mean they put warnings on cigarettes (“you will die“) but the warnings on food rarely describe the destructive effects of salt and sugar and the artery-clogging and unbalanced nature of fast foods, red meats and genetically-modified foods.
Then again . . . . Burger King has a “Rodeo King Burger” (1,480 calories; 2,340 grams of sodium) to which you can add fries and a Coke (another thousand calories). And – if you can go next door for a Sonic Blast beverage, you tack on 1,540 calories. Frankly, when I order a couple of Triple Whoppers, I like them with bacon and cheddar fries. I finish with a massive piece of cheesecake. Yum. I wash it all down with a cup of black coffee with NutraSweet (certainly not sugar). Now that’s living. (Yawn) I think I’ll take a nap.
