Thanks for sharing
I am shocked by the difference, but then again, not so shocked as I know how much sugar and fat restaurant food can have. I have lived abroad for the past 12 years, and it seems like the restaurant food has only gotten in worse for health in America. The waffle pics surprised me the most.
Great to see how a healthy portion stacks up to the not so healthy.
The calories in pasta/rice has been an eye opener for my husband and I. We loved a plate of spaghetti with Italian sausage until we realized how many calories we consumed. It doesn't taste quite so well now.
Always surprising when I see something like this
Thanks. Good visuals. More healthy home cooking for weight loss!
Wow, makes a difference.
And the healthy food is more appetizing, by far!
Eye opener. I just wish the healthy choices would indicate the number of carbs...
Excellent article, thanks!
