Breaking News: DudeFoods is Going Healthy!

Peanut Butter, Granola and Apple SandwichesBad news…. Well, good news for my body, but bad news for my blog. DudeFoods.com is going healthy!

This past week I visited my doctor for a routine check-up and apparently all these years of unhealthy eating have finally caught up to me. According to him my cholesterol is “off the charts,” and the rest of my vitals didn’t test too well either.

Basically what it comes down to is that eating things like 4,300 calorie Bacon Double Cheeseburgers and Bacon Weave Breakfast Burritos isn’t exactly good for you. Huh… Who would have known….

The problem is, I don’t want to stop blogging, so as a compromise I’ve decided to turn DudeFoods.com into a healthy living blog. In fact, I’m even working on a new logo! Here’s what I’ve got so far:

I’ve also got my first healthy recipe for you guys! If you’re looking for a delicious and filling snack check out these Peanut Butter & Granola Apple Sandwiches. The best part about them — aside from how delicious they are — is that they’re extremely easy to make. All you need to do is slice a couple apples, cut out the cores, spread peanut butter on them and then sprinkle them with granola. If you’re feeling extra crazy you can even add some raisins to your sandwiches like I did!

Now, I’m sure this whole eating healthy thing is going to take some getting used to, so if you know of any great, healthy recipes send them my way! In the meantime I’ll continue posting recipes as well, but I’m going to be honest, eating healthy isn’t exactly my forte.

    Uh-huh. The funny thing is, those sandwiches actually look pretty good (for those of us who aren’t quite up to a bacon burrito.) On the other hand, just a smidge of crispy bacon added to the apple sandwiches would probably be very tasty.

    I bet chicken salad would be a yummy filling too.

    Totally April fools day. You should see a dr nonetheless. Maybe your cholesterol and blood pressure are indeed elevated. Switching to a healthier lifestyle (weekdays) would allow you to keep the blog as it is and still pig out every now and then

    I like how even in an April Fools “healthy” joke, you still use an inordinate amount of peanut butter 🙂

      Looks like 2 tablespoons to me… give or take seven.

      Those do look damn good, actually. I like the bacon idea from Julie. Beer batter and deep fry them bitches and dinner is served.

    I recommend readers reference the function of “cholesterol” prior to jumping to conclusions. Cholesterol provides the basic building block of cells – without it, your cells will break down and you will die. This is an established fact in biology. Plants have their own version of cholesterol as well.

    More recently, the biggest problem seems to be carbohydrate intake, particularly via grains and more specifically through wheat, which leads to heart disease, strokes and so forth.

    Our ancestors have been recorded as living with meats, vegetables and dairy (and low carbs), and if this is the case we’d be crazy to deny our bodies these basic necessities.

    For the record, any time I decrease my carbohydrate intake the amount of fat on me drops, even if I increase my fat intake. For fats, I focus specifically on sources of lauric (dairy) and stearic (meat) saturated fatty acids. These two in particular are miraculous, encouraging the body to heal itself from damage.

    I’m not entirely religious about the abovenoted dietary choices, and aver that, one day, I’ll get the manliness required to beer batter a few of the recipes on this site. *pounds chest*
