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 – and this 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 topic of sugar being a 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 some peoples’ feelings when I spoke up about the ALIMIGHTY Chik-Fil-A chicken sandwich.
And while I never want to be a jerk – 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 entire health and wellness. It does add up and make a difference. So I am glad to speak up and I hope folks will not be so quick to tear about the wrapper. I hope they will think of Food Babe’s advice – or recall this post – the next time they sit there smacking lips with each bite of that tasty hot, chemically processed food item.
Chick-fil-A SANDWHICH IS A FAIL – It might last good, but THEY GET NO A – THEY GET F
I get 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 soybean oil hurts you at the cellular level (it does) and soybean oil shows 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 – those are dead, rancid industrial oils). And you see, oils that are processed correlate with human body inflammation, 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).
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. But no…. watch the bad guys – which are actually good guys because fat and salts (in the right amount) feed your cells. Fats and salts feed your cells and help immune function because they are life-giving and they supply resources for your organs, cells and tissues, whereas sugar STOPS immune function – yes, it arrests it. 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):
