Happy Friday readers.
Okay – so for the past week, the Almighty Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich has been coming up in conversations.
The Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich has 55 ingredients – not all of them are good ingredients and some will pull from your health – like the MSG- bad oils – gluten – the artificial food colorings that have heavy metals in them – yeah… this chicken sandwich is NOT a health-giving food.
HOW DISMISSIVE WE ARE WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD WE LIKE
You know the old saying to “not” talk about politics, religion, money, etc. if you do not want tension? Well I am used to the classic topics causing havoc – and then in the last few years the topic of SUGAR consumption became controversial – But now… the Chick-fil-A sandwich seems to be a TOUCHY topic. Some people are down right defensive.
I think I have hurt feelings when I spoke up about the ALIMIGHTY Chik-Fil-A chicken sandwich.
I never want to be a jerk – but I am GLAD I have spoken up – which is what this post is about!
I am glad to speak up because maybe slowly it will trickle into the mind that what you eat impacts your wellness. Little things add up and make a difference. So I am glad to speak up and I hope folks will not be so quick to tear into the wrapper and indulge.
I hope people will think of Food Babe’s advice (HERE) or think of this post the next time they sit there smacking lips with each bite of that tasty hot, chemically-processed food item. An item they probably waiting in the drive-through lane to get…. where cars are backed up to the street like they are giving away food – yeah, Americans love these…
Chick-fil-A SANDWICH IS A FAIL – It might “taste” good and sedate you for a while, but THE quality of food is NOT worthy of an A – THEY GET an F
I understand that it takes time to “see” truth – and Emily Dickinson reminded us that truth must come gradually or “every man blind.”
It takes time to see that eating artificial colors adds up in the body (heavy metals accumulate and it hurts cells). Takes time to see that industrial oils used in food are bad oils that hurt the liver and move soybean, canola, and veg oil hurts you at the cellular level (it does) and these oils show up numerous times in the Chik-Fil-A sandwich. These bad oils, which include peanut oil and canola oil, are NOT real foods and they PULL from health. These industrial oils – which include “vegetable oil” (don’t let the vegetable name fool you – it is still dead, rancid industrial oil). And you see, oils that are processed correlate with human body inflammation, fatigue, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and autoimmune disease. Yup. Oils that go through all that heat and processing end up with free radicals (and those are not good for you). And be careful because they sneak the bad oils into items. A friend just had a big bottle of “avocado oil” on her counter – but looking at the label we see it was 70% canola oil. ugh
Want to get well?
Start with monitoring what you put in your mouth – because it does matter.
And you know what is really funny to me is that we are quick to tell people to watch their “fat” intake or quick to say “go low on the salt” intake – and yet we do not hear enough about removing BAD OILS, sugar, and chemicals from the diet. Oh no…. watch the so-called bad guys – which are actually good guys because fat and salts (in the right amount) feed your cells, allow for nutrient absorption, and build immunity. Fats, good oils, and salt feed your cells and help immune function because they are life-giving and supply resources for your organs, cells and tissues. In contrast, the processed crap – and especially sugar – impede immune function – (sugar arrests immune function). This removing of chemicals, sugars, and bad oils from the diet becomes even more crucial for people who have autoimmune disorders, or for those who had cancer before.
Want a Healthier Chicken Option
Thanks for letting me rant about that – whew.
Let’s end with Friday Funnies
Here is a Chik-Fil-A funny:
And because Chik-Fil-A is noted as a certain type of Christian company ( I say “certain type” because please do not lump us all together) – anyhow, here is a comic that connects to that.
This next Friday Funny is for Profrifollies 4.9 (here):
