10 worst foods!

Image via Wikipedia This is a version of some one’s top 10 worse foods NOT to eat. I thought it was interesting and I bet everyone has ideas on each item this lady talks about. For me, I agree with the fact that these foods are bad, but I do not necessarily think they are all the absolute worst. I personally eat either turkey bacon when I want a treat because it is a lot better. I also do know that canned soups are high in sodium and other factors, but healthier can soups aren’t that bad. These are some

Beer and a Burger

Image by jypsygen via Flickr How about a Whopper and Beer?? This may sound strange to you, but for Burger King, the idea is sure to spark interest. In Miami, Burger King is opening up a new location that will serve beer alongside its food. This restaurant will be the first U.S. fast food restaurant to serve alcohol. I don’t know what to think of the idea right now. I hope it works for them. I fear for the increase in drinking and driving because of this new idea, but we will have to see. Basically, they will only serve

Drive Thru Diet

Image via Wikipedia There is a new “healthy” menu at Taco Bell. These fresh menu options offer less fat and calories. Taco Bell is basically saying that if you are in a hurry and are going to eat fast food regardless, it is better to come to them and eat off there new fresh menu then to go somewhere else. I know some of my friends were confused and after seeing the commercials, thought this meant the food selections were healthy. NO. This means there new food selections are better than the others and can actually help those who eat

SuperBowl Sandwich Idea

Image by James Good via Flickr The Superbowl is coming up and with the game, there are always huge parties to celebrate. Since I am in college, the food usually consists of wings, pizza, chips, veggie trays and cookies. Now this food is not very healthy, but it is very inexpensive and requires little or no preparation. Now, if it was up to me, my Superbowl party would be a lot different. I would like spending the time preparing gourmet dips, veggie trays, special wings, and even different sandwiches. But since I am on a budget, this is very hard

Sips & Shots: 50 Shots of America–Georgia

Even though I live about a half-hour’s drive from the Florida-Georgia border and even worked in that state (however briefly), I had absolutely no idea that Georgia was one of the original 13 Colonies much less the 4th official state, having ratified the Constitution on January 2, 1788. (Seriously, we’re getting close to concurrent dates, here–will it happen? I suppose I could peek ahead and see but I like to be surprised. Actually, I don’t, but I’ll make an exception in this instance!) You know, I bet the Union must have taken it very hard when Georgia seceded is 1861;

The Best Burger in Town

Image via Wikipedia I am from the Cleveland area, so when I came to college in Toledo, there were a lot of restaurants I had never heard of. One of these restaurants I had never heard of was Red Robin. I had seen commercials back home for them, and always remembered RED-ROBIN-YUM… but I never had been to one. Last year, my friends and I were shopping and decided to grab a bite to eat. We ended up finding a Red Robin, and trying it since I had never been there before. When I first walked in, the restaurant was
