Fast-Food vs. Real Food

One of the sites I read frequently, BODA Blog, does a neat feature each week called Friday News Bites. All three items this week are fascinating, so check them out.

I especially wanted to share one of them with you: A woman on a mission did some testing to find out if she could make home-cooked versions of some popular fast-food items cheaper, healthier and better tasting.

Spoiler alert: She could.

In most cases, it was no more time consuming, either.

She had a small group of testers – teenage fast-food connoisseurs – and tackled the McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin With Egg, the Burger King Double Whopper, and Domino’s Hand Tossed Pizza. After some trial and error (in some cases) she came up with equivalents to each of these items… that were far from equivalent. They all had better nutrition, were less expensive, reasonably easy to make, and the testers unanimously agreed that her versions tasted better. She even included her recipes!
