Yesterday, Mama Pea was blogging about having pie for breakfast. I made a comment that it's more healthy for you than fast food. So, I was curious. Is that true? So I did a little checking. Here's what I found:
A sausage/egg muffin from a fast food restaurant
450 calories (252 from fat- 50% of your recommended allowance of saturated fats!)
930 mg of sodium (39% DV)
280 mg cholesterol (87% DV)
Apple pie (homemade) 1/8 of 9 inch pie
410 calories (19 gm fat- 24% DV)
327 mg sodium
Custard pie (sorry, they only had commercially made ones) 1/6 of an 8 inch pie
220 calories (12 gm fat- 12% DV)
252 mg sodium
35 mg cholesterol
So, you have it here- eating pie for breakfast is better for you than a fast food breakfast! And you could even adjust your recipe to make it even better. I sometimes make a whole wheat crust to add some extra fiber.
Other things that have sparked my questioning mind today? Why do the chickens stand around in a cold rain when they've got a warm, dry coop? Why do some people think they don't need to use turn signals?
What should I take to a work potluck tomorrow? Will I have to report for jury duty on Monday? Will we get snow tonight? Are the chickens just having an off couple of days or are they slowing down due to the dark days we are entering? (I only got four eggs yesterday, three today)
What have you questioned today??
