Fast food revaluation

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I realized something today...I have been putting some pretty bad stuff in my body with the way I was eating before I started SP.

I was out with my family and my two year old became hungry. Normally I bring snacks with me to give to him but I I forgot. So we stopped at a fast food place to grab him a nugget kids meal. I was going to eat one nugget for myself. However since I started SP I have documented everything I have eaten. So I looked at the nutrition on the box and I was shocked at what I saw. One serving (two nuggets) had 460 calories and 1000 sodium. Lets just say that my son only finished the one he had in his hand and that was it. A kids meal has four nuggets so that is 920 calories and 2000 sodium. The fat was horrible too. That doesn't include the fries. Then I started thinking about all I would eat at fast food places and I don't want to know about how unhealthy I was eating my whole life. I have already started to cook homemade staying away from processed food. Now I have to find ways to bring healthy food for everyone in the family while we are out and about. It won't be easy but I know it is possible it will just take some work.

Can't wait to research and find healthy good tasting alternative.

    Good for you, and Spark is the best place, with all the info you need to start...
    I just kept giving my kids bites from my healthy meals. Then made that meal a couple of times, and now they want a salad once a day.
    Go figure!
