Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
November 16 is National Fast Food Day!
Fast food portions are out of control and eating at fast food establishments is not a healthy diet habit. If you are like most of us, you eat what you want, whenever you want it, with no thought to calories or portion size!
The key to eating successfully at fast food restaurants is to know what you are eating and be aware of fast food portions. What sounds healthy may not be healthy at all!
Here is some additional information on fast food from Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website:
