I have consumed some fast food in my time. Who hasn’t, right? And once in a while, the kids still talk me into something quick when we’re heading for the park, or shuttling from one activity to the next. But this infographic has some details that certainly give me pause (click to enlarge):
Despite the somewhat stomach-churning factoids here, the tidbit that I find hardest to believe is that the US is so far down on the list of self-professed once-a-week-fast-food-consumers. But I wonder how specific that data is, anyway. If I run through the drive-thru at Burger King every other day for an iced coffee, would I then have to put myself into that category, even though I’m not eating any so-called fast food? Hmmm.
I found the infographic above at the Recipe Finder blog, where there is also some helpful information on DIY fast food, as well as some recipes which I will definitely be exploring for my own family.0
