The $2.99 treat will be available nationwide, including at 480 Dunkin’ Donuts in New York City, on Friday — which the company has dubbed “National Donut Day.” Dunkin’ Donuts says it’s set to debut its “Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich” on the nation this Friday, making a split glazed doughnut filled with a peppered fried egg and cherrywood smoked bacon the newest addition to America’s breakfast repertoire.
“The glazed donut is light and fluffy and gives you just the right amount of sweetness,” the Canton, Mass., company said in an announcement on its website Monday. “Combined with the lightly salted, smoked bacon, the texture and flavors marry together in a wonderful way.”
Packing 360 calories, the breakfast treat is about 30 calories less than the turkey sausage sandwich on the chain’s healthy eating menu.Eat To Live – Dr. Joel Fuhrman: The Amazing Nutrient-Rich Program for Fast and Sustained
I’ll admit it, I can see why it is appealing. I’ve weaned off eggs and bacon, so personally there is no temptation. But, I do not judge. This is offering the best of everything and with a cup of Joe to go along with it, whose commute wouldn’t be better?
There is this one glitch. Heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and physically inactivity seem to be killing off Americans, and this might have a clue why.
I believe I can never know enough about living healthy. I’m constantly learning more about eating healthy. I’ve adopted a plant-based diet, a vegetarian diet, but it is amazing to me how much more there is to learn?
I suggest reading the book Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Even if you believe your diet is good, it’s great to get more validation. It helps me continue to make good choices and when I do make a decision to eat something fun and as good as cardboard is for me, at least, I understand it.
After years of examining the accumulating evidence, eight top health organizations joined forces and agreed to encourage Americans to eat more unrefined plant food and less food from animal sources, as revealed in the dietary guidelines published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
These authorities are the Nutrition Committee of the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Council on Cardiovascular Disease in the Young, the Council on Epidemiology and Prevention, the American Dietetic Association, the Division of Nutrition Research of the National Institutes of Health, and the American Society for Clinical Nutrition. Their unified guidelines are a giant step in the right direction. Their aim is to offer protection against the major chronic diseases in America, including heart disease and cancer. “The emphasis is on eating a variety of foods, mostly fruits and vegetables, with very little simple sugar or high-fat foods, especially animal foods,” said Abby Bloch, Ph.D., R.D., chair of the American Cancer Society at the time. Based on a culmination of years of research, these health experts’ conclusion was that too much animal-source food is one of the leading causes of heart disease, cancer, strokes, diabetes, obesity, etc.— all the major chronic diseases that cost 1.4 million Americans their lives each year (more than two-thirds of all deaths in the United States).

One more suggestion before I leave you. If you just can’t keep yourself away from these treats, then schedule a Life Line Screening. You don’t need a doctor’s note, you don’t need to tell anyone, so they can ask you how you did. What to expect. You simple go online or call and make yourself an appointment. You will be given your results privately in an email or if requested in the mail.
My personal recommendation is the 6 for Life. 6 for Life Not only can you learn about your vascular health through our ultrasound screenings, our new disease risk assessment screening, 6 for Life is a written, personalized report that measures your risk for 6 major chronic diseases: Stroke Diabetes Coronary heart disease Congestive heart failure COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) Lung cancer For each disease condition, you will receive a risk score, corresponding to Low, Moderate, High or Very High risk. The report also identifies which modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors impact your score.
But, once you are on the site or talking with as counselor over the phone they will be able to dial you into what’s best for you and your budget.
