Tag Archives: Double Down

change of heart

last night was my double down night.
i was determined to have one.
i got in line at KFC…looked at the picture of this “sandwich”
and suddenly felt really unsure about it all.
honestly…it just looked so unhealthy.
i turned to Elle Bee and said, “i really want something healthier”
my body was still feeling the effects of a kick ass walk…that was longer than my usual one
i was feeling good..accomplished
and i just felt that if i ate the Double Down…all that work would have seemed such a waste.
my heart just wasn’t in to it.
or maybe my heart was just warning me that it wasn’t the best thing to be feeding it.
Knowing full well that i had gone to KFC prepared for a cheat…
my options opened….
I have been craving a sub for months now….and lately i’ve been wanting pizza
So off we went for subs 🙂
i had a pizza sub on a hearty whole grain bread
i killed two birds with one stone
i felt that it was a “healthy” cheat in the end
(oh….and a tiny, itty bitty peanut butter cookie lol)
yes, my belly was not the most impressed with the carb consumption
but i would hate to see what my body would have felt like if i actually did the double down for dinner.
a lot of the comments on my facebook page yesterday were against me doing it
so to my facebook friends…you will be pleased to know…that i did not
i could not.
and probably never will.
i was more than willing to…at the beginning
but i had a change of heart.
two thumbs down for the double downer.

Double Down

i am sure most people know what a Double Down is.  It’s had so much media attention since at least the summer…you just gotta know!
incase you don’t…let me tell you.
A Double Down is a “sandwich” from KFC.  it just made its debut in Canada yesterday.
what it is, is 2 breaded chicken breasts – that act like the bun holding everything together, with Monterey jack cheese, bacon and the colonel’s special sauce.
you can get the breasts either breaded and deep-fried, or grilled.
this is what it looks like:
I am not gonna lie.  i totally want to try one….just once…cause i don’t think my body would take to it too kindly more than once.
just looking at it is enough to cause a massive coronary…but i still want to try one…
i did some extensive research…and by research i mean i heard on the radio on my drive in to work this morning that a Big Mac and a Whopper have way more fat than the Double Down.
Also…the fact that i don’t consume bread… well this can’t be that bad for me.
if i got the grilled chicken breast…really…it ain’t so bad.  it’s not the healthiest food choice but i am not sure if i would feel immense guilt having one.
has anyone had one??
