Free Food Is Not On My Diet. Thanks Anyway, Kiplinger!

It’s a scary world out there for someone trying maintain a healthy weight.

Today as I was surfing Yahoo I came across an article about “Fabulous Freebies” from Kiplinger. One of the freebies it suggests readers take advantage of is free food. (You know this can’t be good.)

The article listed fast food restaurants that have an annual freebie day:  IHOP pancakes, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, and Pretzelmaker pretzels.  It goes down-hill from there:
Cinnabon, Haagen-Dazs, Krispy Kreme doughnuts and Cold Stone Creamery.

Chick-Fil-A gives away a free meal in July.  I’m guessing there’s not much happening nutritionally there except for the fruit cup and iceberg lettuce side salad. And the writer suggests you call around to find out where the free birthday specials are. 

Anyway, Kiplinger, thanks for the financial ‘tips’. I for one plan to turn down the freebies. My waistline can’t afford for me to be financially fit.
