  1. Diana, I love your blog and all the very helthful articles you provide. On this particular one about the McD’s food–I guess it’s best to avoid the place all together—eeewwww. Once I was desperate, pregnant, starving and with a 4 yo so I stopped at McDonalds and chose the Fruit and Nut salad thinking, how bad can this be. Well, apparently they managed to make that bad as well. I don’t remember the numbers but I thought it was a little crazy that a fruit salad couldn’t be made healthier. I know the nuts had a little to do with the high calories but there’s a lot of fat probably from the fruit dressing or dip, which I didn’t use. I realized that many restaurants add sugar to their fruit salads to enhance the flavor. I just fruit, come one give it to me straight.

  2. I sympathize with a policy for your food. And I support your site. If there is time, please come in my site. From Japan http://food-soybean.blogspot.com/
