WHAT IS WRONG WITH FRIED FOODS?
So many people eat fried food each day and think nothing of it. Fried foods are usually a processed food item, covered with white flour stripped of all nutrients and replaced with all sorts of additives and served with more fatty sides such as French fries, onion rings and processed creamy Cole Slaw. Fat, unhealthy flour, additives and more fat may be okay for a healthy person once in a while, but it should not be a habit. Americans have too many food related obesity issues to gamble with unhealthy food choices. We need to rethink about what we are feeding our bodies.
The next time you want to enjoy fried chicken strips, at least frequent a restaurant that uses healthy oils such as olive oil or vegetable oil and have fresh veggies and/or a salad as a side and fruit for desert. Your body will thank you.
