I've been vegetarian for a year. A restaurant put beef in a dish they said was "vegan crumbles found out after profuse vomiting. Why did I vomit so?

Physical and mental: Your body could have become so unaccustomed to meat that it reacted and your discovery of having eaten meat could have so rattled you that the vomiting was a stress response

Some restaurants are serving sweet potato fries instead of regular french fries. How do their nutritional values compare?

Some restaurants are serving sweet potato fries instead of regular french fries. How do their nutritional values compare?

Processed food - meh: Doubtful if fresh cut. Processed food is all about additives and salt. Both potatoes and sweets have nutrients. Balanced diet is key. Don't make a habit of all brown meals.

Can people usually ask for the nutrition facts when they go to fast food restaurants when they ask for the menus?

Can people usually ask for the nutrition facts when they go to fast food restaurants when they ask for the menus?

Not so much: When going to "fast food" restaurants, people are often in too much of a hurry to ask about nutrition facts before buying and gobbling. More and more such restaurants are posting this information, though -- so you can look it up online before going. In some cases it's right on each item on the menu when you get there.

Am type1diabetic, hv tried to find app that shows diff. Restaurants w/nutrition info since count carbs (religiously!); help w/ spec. App=restaur.=crbs?

Local Problem: I do not believe that mississippi forces restaurants to display and supply their nutrition information like other states do. But that would be a local matter that those of us on health tap cannot provide.

What are healthy options for my kids on kids restaurant menus?

What are healthy options for my kids on kids restaurant menus?

Non-fried foods: Restaurant foods are often not made to be healthy but are made to taste good so customers will return. That means restaurant foods will have more oil, more salt, or more sugar than home-made foods. Grilled chicken breast is good, but usually the menu item is fried chicken strips. Spaghetti with red sauce is ok, unless the sauce is too oily. A hamburger without mayo; with steamed veggies is ok.

Is it good for your health to become vegan?

Yes and no: If you want to become a vegan for moral reasons, be sure you know exactly what you are doing, and take the supplements you need, or you will ruin your health quickly. You'll lose weight because your food doesn't taste as good, and meet fitness enthusiasts which is good. The vegan industry is full of both very good and upstanding people, and also shameless crooks and liars. Be warned.

Any suggestions for avoiding sodium in restaurants, other than "hold the salt & seasoning"?

Any suggestions for avoiding sodium in restaurants, other than "hold the salt & seasoning"?

Good Luck with That: The western diet relies heavily on salt for seasoning. And restaurants don't hold back at all. Try this: 1. Never eat from the bread basket (breads, cakes, pancakes, etc. Are full of salt). 2. Avoid creamy, cheesy sauces. 3. Avoid restaurants that use pre-prepared starters (usually your chains, diners) 4. Avoid smoked meats and deli cuts. 5. No salad dressings (usae oil and vinegar).

Is a vegan diet any good?

Is a vegan diet any good?

Moral high ground: In this era of factory farming, it's a conscientious choice but each of the big recent studies shows no health advantage or disadvantage of a supplementing vegan over an omnivore in longevity or any category of illness if you control for other health habits. A non-supplementing vegan will become seriously sick in a few months. Be discerning and recognize the huckstering & real caring about animals
