The Junk Food follow up


I'm not going to go into a lot of details here, I think we are all aware that not much good goes into fast food. No love here. Here is a link that is pretty can likely find just about any kind of QSR restaurant recipe you ever dreamed of.

So what's really in this crap, and what kind of nutrition is it providing? Lets pick on the evil empire "McDonalds".

What’s in a McDonald’s hamburger? A 100% beef patty that’s seasoned with a pinch of salt and pepper, topped with melty cheese, tangy pickles, minced onions, and (of course) ketchup and mustard. Duh.

Sounds pretty good, right? This is how the McDonad’s hamburger is advertised. Sounds simple enough. And from a real food perspective, it sounds… well, real.

Thankfully, McDonald’s and several other chains recently stopped using the “pink slime” in their meat patty. But the vast majority of fast food beef comes from CAFO (concentrated agricultural feeding operation) cows. Not only is this horrible for the animals and the environment, but eating meat from sick animals will only make you sick.

Eat a McDonald’s hamburger and you might be getting a mouth full of antibiotics, hormones, and dangerous bacteria. So while it is “100% beef”, the quality of that beef is another issue altogether. The rest of the burger is hollow carbs with no nutritional value.


Here are a couple of my recipes created in mastercook format, which is available on my pro chef website...I'll even give you some professional cookbooks and an archive of my recipes to boot.

Now for some recipes, there in PDF format. Enjoy!
