By the time Friday night comes around, you’ve probably done your fair share of cooking and you need a break. So what will it be? Fish and chips? A big, juicy burger with all the trimmings? A pizza with a sausage-stuffed crust?
And what goes better with any of these than a sweet, ice-cold cooldrink? We’ve come to think of junk food as convenient, happy-making treats – we deserve it!
But add to that weekend meal a few muffins for breakfast during the week, pies for lunch, microwave popcorn with that movie and a few more cooldrinks and you’ve spent a large part of your week filling up on foods that offer your body almost no health benefits. In fact, their effects are harmful, causing weight gain, low energy and increased risk of heart disease and depression, just to name a few.
