When the waitress at your favorite breakfast stop asks you “bacon or sausage,” take the bacon. On average, bacon has 35 calories a slice while a die of sausage contains 277 calories. Surprisingly, bacon also contains less sodium.
If she asks, “hash browns or home fries,” take the home fries. They’re less greasy, than the hash browns and contain 15% fewer calories in comparable servings.
Yes, that organic produce may be free of pesticides and synthetic fertilizer, but it’s no safer from germs that may come from harvest, transporting and having it out on display at your grocer’s.
Experts will tell you that germs don’t really discriminate based on how the food was grown. As with any raw produce, make sure you wash it once you bring it home from the store.
