yes, i’ll kinda be dissin’ chick-fil-a, even though i’m certain that over the yeeears i’ve spent a car note in that joint — especially in the summers. have you had their seasonal shakes?! *calm down, byron.* last year’s was peach-flavored and this year’s is banana pudding. *sheesh-my-knees….*
a few weeks back, a personal trainer friend, patrice jones, posted fat and sugar content of the shake on facebook and i was alarmed and appalled at how high the numbers were. i went straight to their website to look at just what i’ve been putting in my body… including the honey-roasted bbq sauce that i so-love and won’t be denied. check em out.
sobering, huh? and to think…. chick-fil-a is one of the BETTER choices in fast food and we probably order from the menu without reservation — because it’s quality food, right? look, this is just information. you apply it how you like. if you find that you’ve sleepwalked to chick-fil-a, you CAN opt to stay on course by choosing a salad, removing sandwich bread, or splitting fries with someone.
last weekend, my 4-year old goddaughter karrington and her 5-year old cousin, caleb, wanted to play in the chick-fil-a playground and we had to go there. aaaall for the kids 🙂 i ordered the tasty southwest chargrilled salad and removed the black beans and chinese noodle toppings — whose values aren’t included in the above numbers. because i like their fries (and never said i’d never have another), i snuck a few of caleb’s fries and
slathered put my bbq sauce on them. *yeeeeeeeeeeeeeees*
CONFESSION TIME: i ordered a banana pudding milkshake — even after patrice’s facebook post and my own research. well, my family hadn’t tried it yet! so i bought it and *wait for it!* passed it around the table… we all shared it. 3 adults and 2 kids spooned it until it was kaput. #shrug #divide-by-5
live your life, go places, do things, eat stuff… but don’t blame it all on life. when you know better, do better. i entered chick-fil-a armed and ready to make better choices.
