The president’s wife along with her food police seem to have a lot to say about what children and adults consume as food, but she never has much to say about restaurants that serve what most would consider “good tasting” ETHNIC FOODS, such as fried chicken, grits and gravy and fried seafood just to name a few of the things on the menu. This has nothing to do with who owns these companies. It has to do with the caloric pass some companies are given by the fat maven living in the White House. Popeyes provides its own menu on the internet and an entity called Calorie Lab provides the same information with regard to KFC. Certain states require the posting of calories on their menus. I happen to like both fried chicken and some fried seafood but I must admit I have yet to enter a Popeyes or KFC restaurant. I will give you just a few of the options on the menus.
Popeyes: 1 breast of chicken is 440 calories. One small onion rings is 280 Calories. One regular coleslaw is 220 calories. One regular Cajun fries is 260 calories. That adds up 1200 calorie with a drink that could add either zero or another 200 plus calories. Don’t forget the creamy horse-radish or tartar sauce, another 150 plus calories. If one still had room for dessert, add another 200 plus calories. This does not even broach the subject of excessive salt and fat.
Seafood on the menu: butterfly shrimp….8 pieces 290 calories. A side of Cajun fries 260- 770 calories. etc. At least 540-1000 calories without a sweet and the condiments.
Let’s check out breakfast: One sausage biscuit is 540 calories. Hash browns is 360 calories. Adding healthy orange juice 140 calories. Total 900 calories without the OJ. Again, this does not reflect all the fat and sodium.Got room for dessert?
Okay KFC: These are listed as EC, which I assume are estimated calories: chicken breast(1) 460 Calories. KFC rice and gravy(1 bowl) 610 calories. 1 brownie 270 calories = 880 calories. 6 “fiery” buffalo wings are 440 calories. How many people order the green beans only 50 calories?
Alright, these are just a few examples of the vast menu of foods that can be purchased and consumed in these restaurants. I would assume that the quality of the foods is good as advertised. Everyone has the right to go to these and any restaurant to purchase and eat what ever they wish. This is still a free America, but for how long.
My question is whether or not there is some racial motivation because of the ethnic foods on the menu, even though the companies may or may not be owned by minorities (I have no idea if they are), the obama’s along with their food police, and the administration have not had anything to say about either of these companies. Are the companies against religion and for gay marriage? I really don’t know. One must remember the severe recrimination against Chick Fi Let last year because the owner voiced some moral, ethical and religious convictions. Fried food is great in moderation along with everything else the public may wish to consume. GOVERNMENT MUST STAY OUT OF OUR WALLETS,OUR HEADS,OUR FOOD CHOICES,OUR BUSINESSES AND OUR BEDROOMS!
