If you guys haven’t been paying attention recently, McDonald’s just dropped a healthy alternative for breakfast foods and all day snacks in form of their Fruit & Maple Oatmeal! I’ve always been a connoisseur of fine oatmeal, so of course I had to try McDonald’s new take on an old favorite. Was their oatmeal too runny? Too thick? Check it out right here after I opened this baby up.
Who’s the future of Twitter? Is it @kanyewest? A lot of people are saying it’s @50Cent, and with tweets like the one above, it’s hard to argue against it. Not sure if his actual literacy level is sub-par, or if he’s still getting acclimated to his phone’s keyboard, but the results are hilarious. In this recent Tweet, 50 is yammering about the taste of certain healthy foods…and particularly the wood-tasting sandwich his cook just made for him. Serious Fiddy, call me, I’ll make you a healthy sandwich for half the price!
It’s amazing how the best places are hidden in unsuspecting locations like a shopping plaza. The New Deal Cafe in Gainesville, Florida is no joke. This has been the best quality food I’ve had since I began school here. Great prices and great food that can all be found in this one spot. If it’s budget friendly for a student, then you know almost anyone can afford it. Check out the rest of the post to see what they have to offer. Till then, eat on!
Betcha didn’t know Foodbeast could go healthy on you! Not only does this recipe of Whole Wheat Pumpkin Banana Pancakes sound great, but they look great too. Have you seen the picture?! I mean just look at it and then tell me you wouldn’t want this on your plate for breakfast. Take that Jack Johnson, we don’t need your plain old banana pancakes after all.
Dieting is one of the most interesting and psychological topics that can possibly be discussed in the food realm. Everyone has something that works for them (or doesn’t work). That’s why this sandwich is so illuminating, it subsequently represents the normal dieters struggles in the form of a sandwich. Ever work really hard one day, only to screw it up at night, or on a weekend by going out, getting shitfaced, and doing a late night donut/mexican food/burger run? Or do you know someone who thinks eating a salad is healthier than a cheeseburger, even if they drench it with ranch dressing, cheese and bacon bits? We’ve all been there, or know someone who has.

A tropical-theme chain of restaurants based out of Utah is about to make its footprint on Orange County. Serving fresh, healthy, gourmet rice bowls is their game and Rumbi Island Grill is their name. Rumbi plans on tripling its size by opening over 60 eateries in Southern California with the first two to open in Irvine by June. The main rivals for Rumbi will be Chipotle Mexican Grill and Wahoo’s Fish Taco. I’m sure this stuff will be delicious!
Last night, Marc, and my brother and I were having a lengthy conversation about eating healthy, getting ready for summer, and hitting the gym. The topic of eating-the-best-you-can at a fast food restaurants naturally came up, and I did some digging. It’s safe to say most everyone I know is a fan of french fries, yet, just as many people are quick to say they are integral part of a “bad diet”, something you need to cut out completely if you’re to lose weight with the quickness. Generally, I must agree. But on your “cheat days”, you definitely can pick between a “bad” and “worse” french fry, based on location and serving size. The good folks over at Web MD studied the nutritional content of french-fry offerings at 14 of our most coveted fast food locations.
