Quick, if you had to choose one crappy method of nutrition, which would it be: fast food or frozen meals?
According to a study presented at the 2014 Experimental Biology Conference, frozen meals are the way to go. How’d they arrive at that conclusion? Researchers compared average frozen meals to average fast food ones and found that frozen meals have more vegetables, beans, and whole grains, and have an average of 253 fewer calories than fast food meals.
Does that seem dubious? Well, it should. The research was sponsored by Nestle, who describe themselves as “the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness company.”
Pro-tip: drug companies may have you beat in the health category there, Nestle. Along with hundreds of others.
The icing on the cake? Nestle presented their “findings” at a “scientific poster session”.
The good news is we’ve found a powerful new motivation for eating non-frozen meal vegetables. It’s spite. Spite for Nestle and their “scientific posters”.
