Just say NO!

Friday, January 21, 2011

So I have decided to stop going to Chick-fil-a.  I mean I really don't eat there often but the off chance of maybe thinking about it I will just say no.  There are two reasons for this 

1) STYROFOAM!!!  They use styrofoam and apparently have no problems with it.  I just don't understand a company that is going to say they take a stance on being closed on Sundays but keep dumping tons of styrofoam into the landfills.  Styrofoam can not be recycled and it does not breakdown like other sorts of trash so basically every single Chick-fil-a cup will sit in a landfill FOREVER!

2) SODIUM!!!!  The food Chick-fil-a serves is LOADED with sodium.  I ran some numbers for you to see how bad...a "classic" chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-a (that they are "known for") has 1410mg of sodium!  2500 is your recommended daily intake.  You can eat the knock off sandwich at McDonalds (Southern Style Chicken Sandwich) for 1030mg of sodium!  McDonalds is the better choice sad is that?  Okay here's one reason to limit you sodium intake, the more of it you consume on a daily basis the less you can taste it.  Example, switch to no salt added canned green beans from regular and you basically have to choke them down the first time because of lack of salt.  Once you get used to eating those, switch back once and try to eat the regular canned green beans and you will gag!  Too much sodium messes with your taste buds, not to mention raising your blood pressure, etc.  

Again, I just say...a company that wants to get all up on it's high horse that they are so "moral" for closing on Sundays might want to reevaluate some of those other "morals" they are lacking!
