Chef Michelle's Healthy Fast Food Series
With busy North American lifestyles, fast food consumption is at an all-time high. Statistics indicate that almost 40% of Canadians ate fast food 1-3 times per week.
It will be of no surprise to anyone reading this that fast food is not healthy.
It is universally understood that fast food is “high in sugar, salt, and saturated or trans fats, as well as many processed preservatives and ingredient.
Even the more healthful fast food items are generally high in sugar, salt, saturated fats and trans fats.”
So how can one maintain a healthy lifestyle in the midst of a busy life? What cost-effective, alternatives exist?
