The 20 Worst Foods In America
You don’t have to altogether avoid The 20 Worst Foods In America — some make a fun, decadent treat. I’m not sure how useful the calorie counts are, but the fat and sodium numbers for some of these popular menu items are kind of scary. The list is a good reminder that some things, like the turkey burger, may seem more innocuous than they are.
My favorite thing about this list are the alternatives. Normally these kinds of lists are always telling you to substitute a salad or something. Boring. But this list is just as likely to suggest that maybe instead of a greasy burger, you might want a nice steak. Or tasty shrimp instead of onion rings. Or get what you want, but just a smaller size. Finally, substitutes I can live with.
As for this Thanksgiving — eat hardily and well, and enjoy absolutely everything.
