Goodbye Natural Foods, Hello Heart Attack
Those cholesterol infested burgers, oil-canned fries and rivers of deceitful ranch dressings - that actually have nothing to do with real Cowboys - could be slowly building an unwanted Tower of Blubber around you, a tower filled with clogged arteries, hazy unclear thoughts, smashed internal organs and congested circulation.
We are an extremely busy society. We must make time in our crazy schedules for everything from spending 'quality time' with our kids to serving God.
And when it comes to meal times - formerly known as Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner or Supper if you're a Southerner, we opt for quick convenient choices - and many times, fast food choices.

So, does this mean that we should skip fast food all together? Isn't there anything 'safe' on the fast food menu?
Of course! Even while dieting, you can enjoy eating fast food. It's all about knowing which healthy choices you should make. Here are our 'picks of the fast food litter':
