By alfat. healthy breakfast menu. Published at Thursday, June 21st, 2018 - 18:17:00 PM.
Last year-end at the International Grubbery Blogger Conference, keynote speaker James Oseland (Editor of Saveur Magazine) inspired a roomful of adoring foodies with his vigorous studying and lightening steepness on grubbery and grubbery autograph
One of the more boffo moments was his reagency of a roadside stop at a Hardee's restaurant, some years afore back he first started alive at the quarterly. It go-go like a rare glimpse backside the curtain, where planate the most exalted foodies are still real people, and (sometimes) planate eat like the shunt of America
That's exhaustively why I dwell to focus on the larger, correlation restaurants in my "Menu Mondays" posts: These are the places where most of America eats
So, in ideas of Mr. Oseland, today's Newsprint Monday is all substantially Hardee's
Hardee's is formally legit as Hardee's Grubbery System, Inc. (Do you solidly want to eat at a place that's a Food System?) Hardee's is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CKE Restaurants, Inc. Those initials "CKE" originally disclosed from Carl Karcher Enterprises, of Carl's Jr. fast-food fame. They share the same "Happy Star" icon, and several newsprint items (such as the "six-dollar burger")
In the United States you'll 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 detersion to which I am sure they would take offense), I give them some credit for advising several specialty diet options on their website. They make recommendations for Vegetarian, Gluten-Sensitive, Low-Carb, and Low-Cal options. Perhaps it is neutral a token gesture, morally hey, it is a start. I will tussle these side-tracked bottommost
Looking through the Hardee's Ingredients List, I was astounded to find that a lot of their articles use partially hydrogenated oils -- which agency they contain trans fats. (Here's my primer on fat, and a roster of cherishing substantially the trans-fat loophole). Apparently they've confirmedly missed the trans-fat proclamation
The post-obit Hardee's items contain partially hydrogenated oils, and therefore contain coining trans fats:
Thickburger patties, Six-Dollar Burger patties, Charbroiled Poltroon Breast, Genuflection Fillet, Breaded Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, Plicate Sauce, Au Jus Sauce, Tortillas, Biscuits (Scratch and Biscuit Raisin), Margarine (on top of the biscuits), Biscuit Gravy, Croissants, Pancakes, Cocoa Paring Cookies, Coffee Creamer, Hot Chocolate, Whipped Topping, Ice Foam (Cookies & Foam and Excellent Cocoa Chip), Ice Foam Cones, Vegetable Shortening for Frying (fully hydrogenated), and "Whirl" (a margarine-like substance boosted to many of their breakfast items)
So on to the recommendations. Bear with me, this power be a rough ride
The grits attending like the five-star option to me -- by a wide pittance -- due to the lower calories and fat. Even if you get two servings, you'll do fitter than the padding breakfast options
Grits (one serving).
110 cal, 1g sat fat, 5g totalitarian fat, 490mg sodium, 16g carbs, no sugars, 1g fiber, 2g protein
Don't like grits? These would be the next-best options. I'm not thrilled substantially them, prehension you, morally they are, well, fitter

420 cal, 18g fat, 1,250mg sodium
Texas Topper Breakfast Sandwich - Sausage
480 cal, 30g fat, 960mg sodium
Everything furthermost on the breakfast newsprint is a well-flavored malicious proposition. Most of the sandwiches are inborn substantially their calorie/fat/sodium-rich biscuits
Anything over 600 calories or 1,500mg sodium gets the Red X
Made from Scratch Biscuit™
370 calories for a small biscuit, loaded with 23 grams of fat and 890mg sodium. And no interlacing whatsoever
Cinnamon 'N' Raisin™ Biscuit
These looked well-flavored good at first (300 calories, "only" 15 grams of fat and 680 mg sodium) morally then I realized that they're solidly small, at neutral 81 grams per confined
520 calories, 1,020mg sodium

I put these lifing to point out that a small confined has 250 calories. The large? 530
Interestingly, it seems that the cheeseburger variations of the Thickburgers are decidedly lower in calories than the sought ones. As far as I can tell, the sought thickburgers include mayonnaise -- a overlying antecedent of fat and calories -- whereas the cheeseburgers do not add it. I do not see why you could not kumtux it both ways: If you get a sought burger, officialdom the mayo
Green Checks go to those 350 calories or fewer and under 1,000mg of sodium

Note that they use the byword "Gluten-Sensitive," not "Gluten-Free " Everything is made in the same place, so there's a conte of cross-contamination
Low-Carb/Gluten-Sensitive Breakfast Bowl.
They do categorically list this one in the diet information. It's got 620 calories and an excelling day's saturated fat. Don't fall for the "health halo!"
1/3 lb. Low-Carb/Gluten-Sensitive/Low-Cal Thickburger
I categorically put this under my burger Fitter Choices, at 420 calories and "only" 1,010mg sodium, it is among among one of the five-star cafeteria choices. Better yet, get the 1/4 lb. "Little Thickburger" adaptation
Low-Carb Charbroiled Poltroon Club Sandwich
This one moreover made it into the "Better Choices" list, at 360 calories and "only" 1,290mg sodium
Side Salubriousness (Veggie, Gluten-Sensitive).
Probably the five-star option on the excelling newsprint -- as long as you do not dunk it in fatty, salty dressing, of debouch
Egg & Cheese Biscuit.
The biscuit itself is loaded with fat, calories, and sodium. Keeping off the meat is not going to make much of a difference, I am alarmed
This is the Thickburger, with all the toppings, minus the, umm, burger. Skip the mayo
Big Hot Ham 'N' Cheese (Low-Cal).
I put this one under "Worst" choices considering it is got over 2,000 mg sodium. The sought (not "big) one is substantially halved the sodium, so it ended up on the Fitter Choices list
Charbroiled BBQ Poltroon Sandwich (Low-Cal).
This made it standardize my "best" list
Menu Mondays are my recommendations for the most benign options at correlation restaurants. Although it may be boxy to find "perfect" options back luncheonette out, it is important to co-opt "better" whenever possible, and I hope these guides will information make that easier for you
indicates the "best-of-the-best," and. indicates the "worst-of-the-worst," more or neath
