7. The Cost Of Soda
You could buy a 2-liter bottle of soda from the grocery store for about the same price as a drink at the drive-thru. The cost is usually no more than $3. It’s possible that the bottle is cheaper than that fountain drink! The truth is, restaurants rack up the price of soda about 1200%. They don’t purchase the stuff ready like it is in the bottle. Restaurants buy the syrup from beverage companies and then mix the carbonated water in with it later. That syrup supposedly costs restaurants mere pennies.
6. Not Always “Made From Scratch”
There’s nothing else like homemade food. Unfortunately, we don’t always have the option to enjoy our grandmother’s cooking. The next best thing is a dish made from scratch in restaurants. Beware of that phrase, though. You shouldn’t always believe it. Even if it’s an expensive, fancy place, they might buy frozen and microwaved foods. The soup may come from a frozen package or vacuum-sealed ones that are later heated in hot water. Every business is trying to survive, and not all of them are as honest as they should be. Things that don’t taste fresh usually aren’t.
5. Powdered Eggs, Please
After buying your fast food breakfast, you might have looked at your scrambled eggs and wondered if those are real eggs. Don’t fret. The eggs are real, just not the way you think it is. Most of the time, eggs served as fast food places come from “powdered eggs.” By the same process that created powdered milk, companies opt for fully dehydrated eggs, which appear like a powder. This process increases the shelf life and creates no need for refrigeration. The eggs are “spray dried” which produces a dry powder by rapidly drying the food with hot gas! So, yes, those eggs are real, but they were stripped of all moisture first only to have it added back in time for your order.
4. Extra Silicone, Please
What do McDonald’s chicken nuggets, makeup, and silly putty have in common? All contain a substance called dimethylpolysiloxane. It’s a form of silicone. Silicone in your food doesn’t sound pleasant, but the World Health Organization could not find any adverse health effects that are associated with this silicone. If you don’t wish to consume this stuff because it’s scary and unknown to you, then you should also avoid the McDonald’s Fish-O-Filet sandwich, because it has dimethylpolysiloxane, too. Also found in their chicken nuggets is a chemical preservative called TBHQ, a petroleum-based product. According to CNN, one gram of that stuff is enough to cause symptoms like delirium, vomiting, and more!
3. Smells Like Good Cookin’
When you decide to go out to eat, you’re either starving or just a little hungry. Have you ever noticed that your mouth waters when you arrive at the restaurant and everything looks like it’s super delicious? It may not happen all the time, but when it does, don’t blame yourself into giving into buying too much food or ordering the unhealthy options. Restaurants like to pump smells into the air to make food irresistible to you! Establishments like eateries, hotels, and grocery stores may release the aroma of sugar cookie, grilled meat, or chocolate into the air to manipulate you into feeling hungrier.
2. Asking For Calories
If you wish to know the calorie count of a particular menu item, don’t ask the employees. You’re better off looking it up on the internet. Many cashiers are instructed by their bosses not to reveal how many calories a dish has. At most, employees will tell you that all the information you need is online. Most health experts recommend the average male consume 2,500 calories per day while the average female should have 2,000 calories per day. Of course, this depends on your body, height, age, and weight, but for the most part, these are the numbers to stick by. Look up the calories and nutritional value of a menu item, so you don’t accidentally go overboard!
