Do they offer salads as an alternate?
Yes, I work at Arby's as a shift manager and they are probably the healthiest fast food in my town, I usually eat corned beef, salads, roast chicken,
oven roasted turkey, etc. But I tend to over eat, especially after I was hospitalized last year for too much weight lost and it nearly killed me then.
But it was a wakeup call, and I'm going to start eating/living healthier. Why do they make it so expensive to eat healthy though? It doesn't make
These kind of foods are more healthy, but they take a bit of time. Not terribly expensive. Preparing ahead of time so you can do it fast, for some
of them is good.
WHEY POWDER, its fairly expensive, but lasts, and my sons both take this, Best kind is the organic, non GMO, in health food store, read the label.
Weight builders use this.
Cereal. Brown Bread, white is useless, and sorry this needs to be somewhat expensive for health purposes, most bread isn't good, sprouted.
Now here is what my son tries to do. He is 6 2, and 150 lbs and very thin. Having potatoes on hand, (only works when its not summer though, so 10
months of the year), lots of potatoes, so he can throw 4 in the oven and bake them and put butter on them.
Waffles, frozen is OK, with a variety of syrups. Most are corn syrup, unhealthy. But we have summerland sweets, fruit and berry syrup, and you can
make your own and put it in a bottle, what tastes really good is. Brown sugar syrup (google a recipe) and then add maple syrup (a little pricey but
its only about 1/5 of that), make a big quart jar of it.
Here is where preparation is handy ahead of time. Pancakes, lots and lots of pancakes. So you use, jam, brown sugar, syrup, different things as
toppings for variety.
But you make the batter with organic wherever possible, flour, perhaps half and half with whole wheat and white, and whip up eggs to fold into this,
or egg whites, so its fluffy, and light, make sure its a little thin, the batter so you can make thinnish good pancakes, and also you have to practise
But, if you keep the batter in the fridge for a few days, in a covered juice picture, then you can stir it and pour it out in a med hot pan, with
butter melted in it, and make up several big ones, full pan size nearly, you have to be able to flip them still, relatively fast for extra
Whole fats, that are natural. Nature knows best, not margarine. Ie. BUTTER, and Coconut Oil ARE ESSENTIALS AND GOOD FOR YOU. No, not eating a half
a pound of butter, there are limits and balance needed in all things. But they are essential to healht, to bones and teeth. Organic eggs as well.
So its not just, junk food needed.
My son is still thin however, even when its not summer. But he does some of this, what I've written, especially the potatoes. Makes himself lots of
Try drinking water in a pitcher with several slices of lemon in it,organic lemon. And tea with whole milk. Switch to whole milk.
