BAD Stone Cold
Cold Stone Creamery's Oh Fudge? shake (chocolate ice cream, milk and fudge syrup) starts at 1,250 calories for the "Like It" (16 oz.) size. That's more than a large (32 oz.) McDonald's Triple Thick Chocolate Shake. The "Love It" (20 oz.) has 1,660 calories and the "Gotta Have It" (24 oz.) reaches 1,920 calories (an entire day's worth) and 69 grams of saturated fat (3-1/2 days worth). It's two 16 oz. T-bone steaks plus a buttered baked potato, all blended into a handy 24 oz. cup.
GOOD Leafy Greens
Don't miss out on powerhouse greens like kale, collards, spinach, turnip greens, mustard greens, and Swiss chard. These standout leafy greens are jam-packed with vitamins A, C, and K, folate, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, lutein, and fiber. Serve with a splash of lemon juice or red wine vinegar.
