I know we all do it. Its too fast and easy not to do it every once in a while. So you go through the McDonald's drive-though and get the kids a happy meal, maybe even one for yourself. Not too harmful right? Well, I'm re-thinking that! Check out this article about a happy meal experiment done by a mom who wanted to see just how real her happy meal was. She let it sit out for over 6 months and it never spoiled! Ugh...now imagine what happens inside your body?
I know we all know that fast foods is fattening, low in nutrients, and processed, but how about the amount of preservatives in fast food that will allow it to stay good at room temp for 6 months! I know I won't be giving my kids a happy meal this weekend! How about you?
