We are weak humans when it comes to our eating habits. Eating healthy can be difficult at times. So, what's your go to for a junk food induced coma? Strangely, when you look at the statistics, the most popular foods are all in the junk food category.
Ten most popular foods in the world;interesting mix, check it out.
Compare that list with the most popular foods in America, interesting.
In Andrew F. Smith's Encyclopedia of Junk Food and Fast Food, junk food is defined as "those commercial products, including candy, bakery goods, ice cream, salty snacks and soft drinks, which have little or no nutritional value but do have plenty of calories, salt, and fats. While not all fast foods are junk foods, most are. Fast foods are ready-to-eat foods served promptly after ordering. Some fast foods are high in calories and low in nutritional value, while other fast foods, such as salads, may be low in calories and high in nutritional value."
Is it any wonder we have an obesity issue on this side of the pond? I'm not a health food nut by any means, but I am careful...mindful.
So what is my favorite junk food? I would say pizza, but I'm picky of course. I will always pay more for quality. Second up for me is Canadian Chinese, again quality over quantity. Thirdly, a good sauasage or burger. I don't generally go to franchise restaurants unless they are a Canadian brand. I just find the quality is higher with say Harvey's or A & W over say Burger King or McDonalds. Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, which of course is a long weekend. Happy labour day!
