    they take in account the salt too, not just cholesterol and fat and calories, the strips have the most salt.

    Yikes, yeah, but no shockers - all the pre-fab, huge sat-fat, massive sodium, chemical injected crap people put in their body.

    Without even clicking over I bet some of the items on the good list are:

    Broccoli
    Salmon
    Walnuts
    Flax
    Sweet Potatoes
    Whole Wheat/Whole Grain
    Some no-fat Dairy

    Speaking of which...

    ...having some incredible looking line caught Salmon tonight!

    Filet, skin on, a little salt, pepper, onion powder, chili powder - use a little olive oil (in a spritzer bottle). Toss it on the grill +skin up+ (trust me) - you do not want it to stick so you can pre-prep with a little no fat/anti stick spray.

    Like 3-4 minutes, enough to give it a little touch of grill marks - flip it (make SURE the skin is well coated for no-stick).


    Let it go another 3-4 minutes then brush with:

    soy sauce (low sodium)
    brown sugar
    hot sauce
    garlic, chili powder
    sesame oil or olive oil

    Just balance out the taste between these - it should hit with the soy, build sweet and have a little hot lingering flavor!

    Brush on 2 or 3 times, let it cook to desired finish (do not overcook please).

    FANTASTIC!

    [BTW, self-quoting is the hotness]

    wild or farm raised? i think farm raised taste better and no one has proved it contains too much pcbs.

    Wild (line caught) - yeah, the jury still seems to be out on the Dioxin and PCB levels, though I believe it depends on the farm condition (so I think it's inconsistent at best). I definitely think some of the freshwater farms for like catfish are sketchy.

    I have seen several studies about the reduction in some proteins and omega-3's in farmed (the wild fish diets seem to encourage higher levels). We will go with farmed Salmon if that's all they have, but like the richer wild fish (some people like the farmed, think it's milder!).

    Campbells Chunky is so good though.

    My Mum and Dad both eat like hippies. Nothing but organic this and that, I'm lucky to even get a veggie burger. But this gives probably all the reasons why my parents are shielding me from non-organic foods.

    Yeah its got to be the cheese sauce on the Pasta that has the most calories.
    Plus isn't the recommended calorie intake between 1600-2000 calories a day?

    Strange they never said anything about the burgers from Checkers(Rallys).
    Probably because they refuse to give out nutritional information.(thats when you know its bad...)

    I feel like I'm gonna have a heart attack every time I eat one of those burgers. But they're so damn good...

    Just checkers, it was formerly and more commonly known as Rallys.
    (You know the "You gotta eat" commercials?)

    This Place

    I didn't even think it was legal to refuse to give out that kind of information, but they manage to do it somehow. If you have ever eaten any of their burgers you would know why also.

    Very true. I don't know if you guys in the states have this, but here the Heart and Stroke Foundation gives out the "Check Mark" on products saying they're a healthy pick. But the National news got their noses into it, and it turns out that more than half of the products that have that "Check Mark" paid up front for it without careful examination of their foods. So here in Canada, we can't even trust what the nutrition label says, ha.
