Dear Sacramento Restauranteurs,
Could you show me NOT another sushiyogurtcupcakepizza place? Um, thanks. Snore zzzzzz.
Sorry, dozed off from the sugar crash.
I kind of think the cupcake thing is tired/played out already.
Portion size? Please. Those things still weigh in at anywhere from 400 to 800 calories a pop. No more sushi, please, you can't top Miyagi. Sorry. Why? Because they have a riceless roll on the menu.
And pizza is one of the most unhealthy foods ever... not even whole wheat crust can save this glycemic index nightmare... Too bad it's one of the most popular foods for kids along with carby pals spaghetti and macaroni and cheese! :(
And the yogurt? Pretty nutritionally void. Sure there's protein (4 grams a serving), yeah yeah yeah, tsk tsk all the sugar...20 grams a serving (this is a 1/2 cup... which is 4 ounces... not the 12 ounce container that we get and swirl away to over the rim making it 16 ounces (4 servings). That's 80 grams of sugar...
16 ounces, 440 calories, 80 grams of sugar. But it's non-fat, right?
Might as well have a king size Milky Way bar or two full size Kit Kats.
So, why is it diabetes such a problem in America?
Love & Sugar xoxo cakegrrl2007
