When sorting through some piles the other day looking for meatless meal ideas for Lent, I found an old recipe card that was DISTURBING. It was a list of Lenten meal ideas that included things like:
- Wendy's baked potato bar
- Taco Bell bean burritos
- Burger King burgers without the meat
FOR REAL YOU GUYS!
Over on the other side of the same card were ideas for what to make at home…
- Veggie sandwich with low-fat dressing
- Whole wheat bagels with low-fat cream cheese
- Fat free soup with low-fat crackers
Thank God I eventually found out the truth about real food and healthy fats before it was too late! How sad, though, that I bought the whole mainstream line of thinking about fats without even stopping to think if it made any sense. I wasn't a label reader then and just didn't know. I suppose we all have to give ourselves a break, now that we know better, we can do better, but wow.
