Check out this article about what's really in Chicken McNuggets. Yikes! It's scary to think that this used to be my 'go-to' item on the menu. Mind you, the amount of times I've frequented McDonalds for food is pretty small. What's scarier is that this is the #1 food that the kids in my class tell me they love to order when they go there. And I can bet that a lot of those children have been there more times this year than I have my whole life.
I know it's 'quick and easy' to grab take-away, but so is throwing some beans, vegetables and even meat (if you choose to eat it, choose organic!) into a crockpot and letting it cook while you're at work. The plus side is that you get to come home to a house full of yummy smells!
Ps: We all enjoy getting take-out now and then and with so many options out there we don't have to sacrifice our health for convenience. Just because it's a treat doesn't mean it has to be bad for us! :-)
Happy and Healthy eating everyone!
