So, items with 17-20+ grams of fat are healthy? And people wonder why they are fat.

Salsa is now America's most popular condiment (take that, ketchup).

You know why? Because people like to say "salsa."

20 surprisingly healthy restaurant foods
By the Editors of Men's Health

Sesame Ginger Chicken Dumplings
- 1,801 mg sodium


I don't subscribe to Men's Health and I'm pretty sure that I won't now. Considering that 1800 more than the recommended daily intake of sodium, I'm fairly certain saying that it's not health, and it's just for the appetizer.

Yes, it's probably better than a deep fried salt-lick, but it's still not healthy.
 
2012-10-01 09:42:46 AM
All low-calorie. That's it.

So all I have to do is limit my caloric intake, and I will be healthy? My farking cardiologist lied to me, the bastard. Thanks Today!

The Bloomin' Saltlick.
 
We take only the freshest organic Deer bait, gently score and deep-fat fry, it just like gramma used to!

Sybarite: Salsa is now America's most popular condiment (take that, ketchup).


I hear this all the time. Do people put a bowl of ketchup in the middle of the table and scoop it out with chips? Not usually. I wish there was a way to see if people are adding salsa to their food more than people are adding ketchup to their food.
 
2012-10-01 11:21:03 AM
this isn't a list of surprisingly healthy food. this is a list of the least unhealthy junk food. if you're gonna get something awful for you, these are the items that will do the least amount of damage to you.
 
2012-10-01 11:29:06 AM
If these are surprisingly healthy why is each one labeled as a guilty pleasure?

Yeah... I would say "Salsa" is americas favorite "dip", not "condiment". "Taco Sauce" might be up there as favorite "condiment", but, I agree with you.... "condiment" is something to "put on", not "dip into". Of course, ketchup is a bit of both, with fries & onion rings.
 
2012-10-01 11:57:19 AM
They sure have a really farked up definition for "healthy". I can feel my fingers swelling just from reading those sodium counts!

I certainly add salsa to my food much more frequently than ketchup, but then I've never been a big fan of ketchup. Regardless, that statement has always been misleading because it's really only focusing on the total dollar amount of each product sold, and salsa is way more expensive than ketchup. If you go by total amount sold, ketchup beats salsa by something like 150 million pounds per year.

Sort of like movie ticket sales. Why is the gross revenue the number we look at? Shouldn't it be number of tickets sold, since prices are far higher than they were decades ago? Or, even better, "% of the population who viewed the movie" (which is how TV rating points are calculated), since the population has grown substantially, too.

For an apples-to-apples comparison, our condiment metric should be "usage per meal" or "servings per consumer" or something like that.

Stupid salsa analysts are probably messing up their KPIs, too.

I tried a Peta recipe for chocolate pudding. One third a cup of melted chocolate and a package of firm tofu. Best thing to ever come out of Peta, I expect. Not great pudding, but good pudding and really easy to make, and one of the best ways to disguise tofu ever discovered. How can you go wrong with chocolate tofu? I expect you could freeze it and make frozen pudding pops.

Another tofu recipe I have tried uses tofu as the main substitute for the white sauce in Coquilles Saint-Jacques. Very tasty.

Real tofu is much healthier than the soybean byproduct used in most processed foods, so these are two of your best bets nutritionally. All of the ingrediants are good for you and high in protein.

Dear Fat Author,

Calories are not the be all, end all of how we gain weight, and/or lose it. It is not the only marker to look at when attempting to eat 'healthy'. You can resume writing your next article, 'The Least Harmful Chemicals to Huff'.
 
2012-10-01 01:10:24 PM
List doesn't show Carb amounts, and thus fails. Fat don't make you fat, bread makes you fat.
 
2012-10-01 01:10:47 PM
I hate articles like this. The morbos will be chundering down all of these "healthy" items which will then "prove" that they're incapable of losing weight because they're eating "healthy" but still gaining weight.
 
2012-10-01 01:11:21 PM
I like how only calories and fat content are listed for each item. No mention of carb content at all. This just in - fats don't make you fat.

I hate the category "healthy food" because what it really means is healthier than some really unhealthy food.

My sister is fat. She considers a meal incomplete unless it includes desert but that's ok because she only eats "healthy" deserts (lower in fat or sugar than the worst) which means she can have 2 portions. A real healthy dessert would be something like a piece of melon or a portion of almost anything that is 1/4 the size of what she normally eats.

I knew someone that wouldn't exercise because she read that jogging is bad for your knees. Couldn't convince her that carrying a hundred extra pounds was worse for the knees, let alone her heart.

nonsense. bread makes you happy. the problem, like most things, is a lack of moderation.

although, i think science plays a role in fatness. for example, super high sodium levels for preservation, high and concentrated sugars, hydrogenated fats, poly-____-whatevers, injected flavors, etc.
 
2012-10-01 01:24:15 PM
... are you farking kidding me? They actually stuck the label "HEALTHY" on this shiat? How about HEALTHIER, as in "HEALTHIER than getting the Extra Large Big Mac Meal and a side order of 20 chicken nuggets" instead?

Sorry, I'm far from a health nut, I had pizza and a Dr. Pepper for lunch, but oh my dear God this is why America's fat.

Bread spikes your blood sugar, insulin starts storing available material on hand as fat. Refined sugars and flours make it worse.
