Didn’t Batman and Robin fight French Toast Griddlers?

These dastardly turkey sausages sandwiched between pieces of French toast epitomize the very essence of what I see as Frankenfood – highly processed muck slapped together that eliminate the need for cooking and beautify lowest common denominator nutrition.

So what’s in ’em?

54 different ingredients culminating in an admittedly it could be worse 1/3 of your child’s total daily recommended sodium intake.

The bigger problem here?

Buying into the notion, and in so doing, teaching your kids food comes from boxes and that cooking’s for suckers.

How difficult is it to actually make an egg sandwich?

As I am traveling today, my thoughts turn to food.

How will I make smart nutritional choices as I make my way back to frigid Chicago? It is not easy for me as I am tempted as many of you to forego healthy eats especially when I am surrounded by fast food smells in the airport.

But the above e-mail appeared this morning so I thought I would share it with you along with my food plan.

Today before I board my Southwest flight here in LA I will probably pick-up some yogurt with fruit and definitely some water. I will bring my usual… a nutrition bar or a piece of dark chocolate.

Oh…I will also splurge on a chocolate chip or an oatmeal cookie at Starbucks.
