Subway To Hell – Day 9 on my journey to a healthier me


Subway to Hell

Ok – I admit it – before I got healthy and cleaned up my eating habits, I ate at Subway ALL THE TIME – I mean like practically every day. No seriously – I Fing loved that place! Cheap,”Healthy,” “Fresh,” and I could get vegetarian food that wasn’t french fries (not that I don’t LOVE some french fires now and then) and I could do it guilt free!
Well that was then – hmmm… my how times have changed.  A little knowledge goes a long flame ridden way.
My husband Zeke came across this lovely little Subway Sandwiches expose that I was pretty horrified to read. My precious Subway? E Tu Brute? I wish I could go into the bathroom and stick my finger down my throat and get rid of those 7300 sandwiches I ate between the ages of 12 and 32.
Here is the article link:
I encourage you STRONGLY to read it. It’s important that you know how food is marketed and the extreme contrast in what the food actually is = anything but healthy.

Poor poor Jared. I hope he’s okay with all of this. He must be sick to his stomach! OR he’s just literally sick and has no idea how it could have happened. I mean – he lost weight so he MUST be healthy, right??? Wrong. Very very wrong. Healthy is not about being skinny. Healthy is about not being sick, tired, bloated, dizzy, weak, rashy, itchy, scaly, crampy and all the other symptoms that start off your journey into disease, sickness, cancer, and untimely death.

You know what – I’m not going to take the chance that you don’t click on that link.  So I’m copying some the text here.  I originally posted the entire thing but my blogging husband gave me the Copyright lecture about how that’s a violation, along with the pictures I find online that I’m not crediting the photographers for – let alone asking their permission.  Ugh.  So many rules.  Here I was just thinking I was being generous, instead I’m on my way to internet prison.  So anyway – you only get a snippit, but read the whole thing!!  Go – Do – Read – Learn!

{Excerpt from 03 Mar 2013 by Clark Kent}
…Did you ever hear of a chemical ingredient called azodicarbonamide? Me either. It’s banned as a food additive in the U.K., Europe, and Australia. But not at Subway. Interestingly enough, if you get caught using it in Singapore you get up to 15 years in prison and a fine of $450,000.
And why? Because it’s primary use is in the production of foamed plastics. But in the good ole U S of A, it can be used as a food additive, a flour-bleaching agent, and a dough conditioner because it improves the elasticity of bread.
The U.K. has found that azodicarbonamide is a potential cause of asthma if inhaled, and for people that have sensitivity to food dyes and other allergens in food, this can increasingly aggravate the symptoms.
Somebody should inform Subway that to make real whole-wheat bread all you really need is whole-wheat flour, yeast, salt, water, and maybe some honey. But that doesn’t really do anything for shelf life or the fact that the stores do not bake their breads.
While all the sandwiches contain chemical additives, refined bleached flour, preservatives, artificial colors, MSG, refined sugars, GMOs, and over 50 ingredients, only three contain nitrates. Yea! Far out! Only three!
Those that contain the nitrates are the Ham Sandwich, the Subway Club, and the Turkey Breast and Ham. Basically, these are processed meat sandwiches and the nitrates contribute significantly to disease…

So there you go… disgusting so far, right?  Make sure you read the rest. And enjoy that little bit of info and get your ass out of fast food restaurants.  Even the Healthy ones.  Because I love you.
