Not pleasant! Not pleasant at all people!
You see many times I have stopped by McDonald's (yup, red flag right there!) for breakfast in a hurry. The kids have gotten pancakes and I have gone for the what I thought was a good "yeast free" choice by getting eggs. Sometimes with the sausage patty, although I can not lie. I have known that there must be something BAD in the patty. Not sure what. But it just can't be the same as my nitrate free sausage I have at home. Well, apparently, eggs are not just eggs everywhere. Oh, it might start out as just as egg. But the time the restaurant is done with it....it has soo much more to offer. Ingredients that, well, make the egg something other than just an egg. It's a shame really. Poor egg. It just wants to be an egg. It's what God designed it for. Another choice I have made is when we stop at Chick Fil-A (you know...cause it's MUCH healthier than the other places)I have gotten the grilled chicken salad. I take off the little amount of cheese, but everything else is ok. I even take along my spray bottle of olive oil to embarrass my children if we go inside to eat. I have to confess, I have also eaten a few chicken nuggets when a salad was just not what I wanted or I was driving in which a salad is very difficult to manage. How bad can those little nuggets be? It's Chick- Fil-A for pete's sake!
Well, here is the bad news. I should add that I am not surprised by any of this. I "should" have known. But seriously, when you order a scrambled egg, don't you think you are getting just that? Here is the ingredients list for a few items at McDonalds and Chick Fil-A. Now I am starting to understand WHY it is taking me so long to become yeast free......hummfff...
100% natural whole breast meat with no fillers or additives, seasoning (salt, monosodium glutamate, sugar, spices), seasoned coater (enriched bleached flour [with malted barley flour, niacin, iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid], sugar, salt, monosodium glutamate, nonfat milk, leavening [baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate], spice, soybean oil, color [paprika]), milk wash (water, whole powdered egg and nonfat milk solids), peanut oil (refined peanut oil with TBHQ added to preserve freshness and Dimethyl silicone to inhibit foaming).
So there you have it. The good, the bad, and the really ugly! What are the 3 things to avoid (whether you are on a yeast free diet or not)?
1. All corn
2. All peanuts
3. All Soy
Ommm...go back and read the ingredients.
No more eggs for me outside of home. No more grilled chicken salads at the "healthy" place.
Eating out is going to become nonexistent for a while.
just in time for the Holidays!
