Triple D for Charity!

A key ingredient of fast diets?  NOT!

My main man Guy Fieri and some other chefs are doing an awesome charity event!

REALLY bad pizzas

Definitely not a part of your free weight loss program!

Some of these pizzas are UNBELIEVABLY bad for you!

But…here's the very worst:

#1: Worst Pizza in America

Uno Chicago Grill Chicago Classic Deep Dish Pizza (Individual)

2,310 calories

162 g fat (54 g saturated fat)

4,920 mg sodium

Wait, wait, wait. This is a one-person pizza? Yup. All 2,310 calories are destined for one soon-to-be expanding belly. This pie has been a perennial pick for us over the past three years, and the reason is simple: No other personal pizza in the country even begins to approach these numbers. It breaks every single caloric recommendation on the books, and it does it under the guise of a must-have “classic” dish. With the country being plagued by obesity, Uno should have the decency to banish—or significantly improve—this dish.

Truck Gardens

Andean Culture and Cocoa Leaves

Its is SO about that magic diet!!!

The coca leaf is part of everyday life for most Andean people. It is used in religious ceremony, as medicine, in fortune telling, at festivities, and almost always accompanies workers in the fields. Many outsider accounts mention the traditional use of “chewing” coca, though coca is not really chewed, but rather placed in one’s cheek for several hours to extract its mildly-stimulant juices. This practice is part of an Aymara tradition called “el pijchu” (or “akulliku” by the Quechua people) taken as part of breaks from work. It is similar to the way North American workers gather in the break room for a coffee break. Often Andean farmers, miners and other workers gather while sitting and grabbing at the green plastic bag that coca is usually sold in. In more remote or traditional communities, coca is stored in a woven “Ch’uspa” pouch that is worn as part of one’s outfit.

Chain Restaurants and Food Trucks

A magic diet on wheels!

Indie, gourmet food trucks have taken over Los Angeles, and now mainstream and chain restaurants want in on the action. The Los Angeles Times reports that several southern California chains either already have or will be opening trucks in the coming months, among them SizzlerSprinkles Cupcakes, and Fatburger. ASubway truck is also in the works in Arizona; Johnny Rockets already has one in DC.

Wow is all I can say about this.  Johnny Rockets – you gotta be kidding!
