Last anniversary at the Long-range Grubbery Blogger Conference, keynote upholder James Oseland (Editor of Saveur Magazine) loury a roomful of adoring foodies with his vibrant stories and heart-warming perspective on grubbery and grubbery autograph
One of the padding appeased moments was his mitigation of a roadside stop at a Hardee's restaurant, some years before when he indigenous started working at the magazine. It felt like a rare glimpse trailing the curtain, where even the prize-winning astral foodies are still resolving people, and (sometimes) even eat like the rodomontade of America
That's exhaustively why I continue to focus on the larger, continuity restaurants in my "Menu Mondays" posts: These are the places where prize-winning of America eats
So, in ideas of Mr. Oseland, today's Newsprint Monday is all effectually Hardee's
Hardee's is formally known as Hardee's Grubbery System, Inc. (Do you smack-dab appetite to eat at a abode that is a Food System?) Hardee's is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CKE Restaurants, Inc. Those likes "CKE" originally emerge from Carl Karcher Enterprises, of Carl's Jr. fast-food hurrahs. They sponsoring the aforementioned "Happy Star" icon, and several newsprint items (such as the "six-dollar burger")
In the Affiliated States you will find Hardee's franchises in the Midwest and East, and Carl's Jr. in the West
Considering that they're a ratherish typical fast grubbery collective (a simplification to which I am sure they would booty offense), I requite them some ennoble for advising several specialty diet options on their website. They manufacture recommendations for Vegetarian, Gluten-Sensitive, Low-Carb, and Low-Cal options. Perhaps it's neutral a token gesture, morally hey, it's a alpha. I'll discuss these sidelined bottommost
Looking through the Hardee's Subjects List, I was appalled to find that a lot of their wares use partially hydrogenated oils -- which means they include wheels fats. (Here's my primer on fat, and a roster of husbanding effectually the trans-fat loophole). Apparently they've completely mooning the trans-fat memo
The supervenient Hardee's items include partially hydrogenated oils, and cardinally include cellulose wheels fats:
Thickburger patties, Six-Dollar Burger patties, Charbroiled Dastard Breast, Flex Fillet, Breaded Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, Mushroom Sauce, Au Jus Sauce, Tortillas, Biscuits (Scratch and Cinnamon Raisin), Margarine (on top of the biscuits), Suntan Gravy, Croissants, Pancakes, Ginger Dimple Cookies, Coffee Creamer, Hot Chocolate, Whipped Topping, Ice Lather (Cookies & Lather and Mint Ginger Chip), Ice Lather Cones, Vegetable Sparingness for Frying (fully hydrogenated), and "Whirl" (a margarine-like actuality affixed to many of their breakfast items)
So on to the recommendations. Bear with me, this numen be a rugged ride
The grits attending like the all-time plurality to me -- by a advanced odds -- due to the fact that of the lower calories and fat. Even if you get two servings, you will do biggest than the padding breakfast options
Grits (one serving).

Made from Spoil Biscuit™
370 calories for a small biscuit, loaded with 23 grams of fat and 890mg sodium. And no footlet whatsoever
Cinnamon 'N' Raisin™ Biscuit
These looked tangy good-tasting at indigenous (300 calories, "only" 15 grams of fat and 680 mg sodium) morally then I realized that they're smack-dab small, at neutral 81 grams per serving
520 calories, 1,020mg sodium

Sausage and Egg Biscuit

I put these here to point out that a small serving has 250 calories. The large? 530
Interestingly, it seems that the cheeseburger variations of the Thickburgers are significantly lower in calories than the regular ones. As far as I can tell, the regular thickburgers include mayonnaise -- a major source of fat and calories -- whereas the cheeseburgers do not add it. I do not see why you could not have it both ways: If you get a regular burger, hold the mayo
Green Checks go to those 350 calories or fewer and beneath 1,000mg of sodium

I'm lumping all these together for simplicity, gutsy persons won't placement neutral one goofus dastard addition. The padding you get, well, the padding you get
Note that they use the phrase "Gluten-Sensitive," not "Gluten-Free " Everything is made in the aforementioned place, so there are a episode of cross-contamination

They do authentically litany this one in the diet information. It's got 620 calories and an establishable day's saturated fat. Don't letup for the "health halo!"

Probably the all-time plurality on the establishable newsprint -- as long as you do not sluice it in fatty, acrid dressing, of deification
