Atkins Would Have Been Proud

I had thought the “low carb” craze had had its 15 minutes of fame already, but there appears to have been a resurrection. For those of us eating at fast food restaurants who usually discard the foamy bun, and opt instead for the meaty centre as the form of sustenance, here is your solution: a bun-less chicken sandwich from Kentucky Fried Chicken. If you are just as shocked as I was when I first heard, please follow the link and see the disturbing visual for yourselves. It is absolutely grotesque, and a symbol of how little industry cares about the efforts of dietitians and chefs to lead the public back to the path of wholesome food. Not to mention the animal rights violations that will continue to flourish as the demand for oversized chicken breasts increases to help create this monstrosity of a “sandwich”. With endeavours such as these, I feel like humanity takes 10 steps back and messages such as “eat fresh fruits and vegetables” become completely annihilated. All I can hope for is the masses see this detriment, and make the right choice.


About danirenouf

I have been a registered dietitian since 2003, and very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work in industry, clinical nutrition, public health, and private practice. Currently, I am extremely excited about pursuing entrepreneurial ventures which start with my private consulting practice and branch out into the food and culinary industry. I am busy every day developing my own food products and recipes, adapting traditional cooking techniques and incorporating new and innovative ways to prepare nutritious, delicious food. I am passionate about everything food-related, and aspire to engage others in "getting to know their food" - not all of us are cooks, or need to be, but all of us need to eat.
