Reservations About Restaurants

When you go to a restaurant, do you really know what you're getting? Restaurant insiders, such as cooks and waiters, warn us about a whole list of things, such as the fact that they often put sugar in kids' meals (even the pizza crust) and serve decaf coffee to everyone at the end of their shift, if that's what's left in the pot. They also warn us not to order fish on a Sunday or Monday because a restaurant's seafood deliveries usually come just twice a week so the freshest fish is most likely served between Tuesday and Friday.

One waitress says she would never order lemon with anything, because she's seen how lemons are handled. Another revealed that so-called "vegetarian" meals often contain meat stock. And your breakfast eggs? If they're scrambled, nine times out of ten, they're made with powdered eggs.

We expect this sort of thing from fast food chains that serve cheap meals, but these revelations come from expensive restaurants. However, chains like McDonald's have their own secrets: In the August 8th edition of the Daily Mail, Kristie Lau and Tamara Abraham quote a former McDonald’s employee as talking about chicken nuggets and saying, "I accidentally left a whole bag of about 100 chicken nuggets out on a counter for way too long. They melted into a pool of liquid. I never understood why. But they were completely indiscernible as being the nuggets I once knew." So they're obviously not made of chicken!

In her book What I Learned From the Fat Years (which has now been REDUCED in price from $5 to $3), Anne Strieber warns that processed foods can spell doom for a diet, and she tells you WHY.

Well, let me just say, if you don't mind, AAUGHHH!

First i agree with almost all of this, i have had vegetarian spaghetti served with meat sauce, chicken nuggets are almost entirely mechanically seperated meat just like hot dogs (carved carcass and skin are pureed and strained then flour and seasonings are added see jamie oliver's youtube vid for demo) however the eggs are not powdered i know ive eaten enough powdered egg. tey are in fact eggbeaters or premixed eg slurry. even those poached looking eggs are not one egg. even the "better" places like Tim Horton's Outback and the like are using almost entirely prepackaged precooked crap. If you want REAL food (mostly) go to a mom n pop establishment. ane we wonder why theres an obesity epidemic... oh yea that pasta in a can can also be one year old BEFORE it goes in the can.. andone can has two meals woth of carbs and a days supply of salt and fat... sick aint it. save yourself READ ALL NUTRITION LABELS!!!!!

I'll go you one better, Ronald-- avoid anything WITH a nutrition label. The chemicals that go into packaged food are designed to fool our taste buds into loving old, rancid food and our brains into become addicted to them. These chemicals (glutamates for one example) are in virtually all packaged foods now. They are making us all obese and prone to diabetes and other chronic illnesses.
