How Does Your Favorite Fast Food Restaurant Rank?

Hey neighbors!!

We have quickly become such a fast paced society, that sometimes we just have to eat out.  We spent 10 years full time on the road traveling, and I can not even give an educated guess at how many times we had to have a meal at a fast food restaurant.  I am just wondering how many of us have stopped to consider just how the different chains compare calorie wise?



I am diabetic, so I try to watch carbs while eating out, but my husband has recently taken an interest in calories, as he is trying to lose weight.  So, out of the major chains out there, who do you think has a decent lower calorie meal?  I would probably choose Chick-fil-a as my first choice before seeing charts, but I was surprised to find out, that Subway ranks right up there too.  Generally I am not a big fan of fast food burgers and fries.  I eat the burgers minus the bun, so I know what the burgers themselves taste like, and the amount of grease with them.  I enjoy the Chick-fil-a grilled chicken items and I often enjoy a 6 inch sub from Subway.

Also, when people think diet, they often think salads, but you still have to be careful there.  Many salads have more calories than you think.  Most restaurants have a calorie chart available if you ask.  Just look at the percentage of menu items under 500 calories at some of the largest fast food restaurants.

What is your opinion?  Would you have chosen the lower calorie restaurant before seeing the charts?  Not that calories are the end all of diet, and it won't hurt you to occasionally splurge, but if you are trying to diet or eat healthier, take some time to educate yourself on the menu items of your favorite fast food stop.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
