Notes of Nutrition
Listen closely; do you hear that? Those wonderful sounds that say, "This is a nice menu selection for your weight loss plan".
You know, when you are choosing items for your meal plate that are low in caloric and fat values, you can feel good about what you eat. In turn, you can enjoy your food without feeling guilty about what you're eating.
Don't ya just loathe that? Sitting there, eating - with those gnawing feelings of guilt surrounding you, thus tainting your meal time?
And these times of the day should always be enjoyable. Sure, if food didn't taste so good, then the existing issue of obesity and overweight wouldn't exist either.
But food does taste good when prepared correctly - and when it's fresh. And without such, our body would not be able to survive. And that's exactly why it tastes so good.
Good Things, Bad Things
The good nutritional news surrounding the Chicken Gordita in the supreme-prepared style is that it's very low in caloric content, it can be enjoyed using the hands (which is always fun), it is reasonable in saturated fat content and contains zero Trans fat.
However, those cholesterol values are higher than those found with the steak and beef versions of the Gordita. A bit surprising, isn't it? Both the beef and steak entrees contain 30 milligrams of cholesterol - a lot less than the chicken version.
In addition, the steak version contains the identical number of calories as the chicken recipe. However, the chicken recipe does contain more protein grams, so we're guesstimating that there is more meat in this selection than in the ones containing beef. We recommend that you order this selection prepared Fresco style which will reduce the amount of fat by 25%.
For this entree, two dietary fiber grams isn't much - but some is better than none.
In addition, if you are monitoring your sodium intake, 510 milligrams might be a tab too high.
