Does Chocolate Go with Everything? America's Haute Cuisine Crowd Seems to Think So

Does Chocolate Go with Everything? America's Haute Cuisine Crowd Seems to Think So | Nutritional Values | Scoop.it
We have reached a point where chefs and chocolatiers will stick almost anything into or onto chocolate and stand back smilingly awaiting our applause.

 

My thoughts

I find this utterly disgusting, I can understand chocolates with cookies and other desserts or chocolate by itself but chocolate with a pizza? Pizza is already not the most nutritional item and the fact that it's now with chocolate (which isn't too good for you either) just mixes the worst of both worlds. Why not just have a plain pizza? It'll save you the calories plus it'll be better than this disgusting pizza. This is why America is getting "fatter", most restaraunts are trying to combine the fattiest and cheapest foods and combine them into 1. As long as it's delicious to the consumer, they won't give two cents about the nutritional facts which is just sad.

Lower Triglycerides Naturally With Food and Diet

Lower Triglycerides Naturally With Food and Diet | Nutritional Values | Scoop.it

(HealthCastle.com) Triglycerides are the main form of fat in your body.

 

My thoughts

Lowering your triglycerides level is important. I believe people need to watch what they eat in order to lower it on account of the fact triglycerides is the main form of fat and have an excessive amount can cause obesity and poorly-managed diabetes. It's important to watch what kind of oils you use to cook, cut back on deep fried foods and snacks, and watching your portion size when eating out so you don't over eat! I believe just watching what you eat, even though it's so good, you need to make sure your eating the nutritional amount of food you need and limit your calorie intake.

Trader Joe's Recalls Another Product

Trader Joe's Recalls Another Product | Nutritional Values | Scoop.it

Trader Joe's just can't catch a break lately. Earlier this year, the grocery chain recalled its chicken salad and onion products over a Listeria scare, and then it got caught up in the Sunland peanut salmonella outbreak.

 

My thoughts

Many people go to Trader Joe's to find nutritional and organic food to buy and hearing their food is contaminated is appauling. The fact that people are buying the foods that can be contaminated is scary, since you think your eating a nutritional meal, it'll still be able to get you sick whether it was nutritional or not! The USDA really needs to step their game up when checking the food that is sold to people like us on account of the fact food poisoning is no joke. I've watched a documentary where a child ended up dying when the food was contaminated.
