|Pasta with chickpeas and cauliflower|
Breakfast: Wholemeal sourdough with cheese
Lunch: Pasta with chickpeas and cauliflower
Dinner: Rolled oats with coconut, raisins, flax seeds and sunflower seeds
Chickpeas and cauliflower together was good but not great I thought. I ate it and was happy with it but I will still complain, I am human after all! Chickpeas just on its own would have been much nicer, or together with meatballs or bacon or probably any other meat. I posted a recipe for pasta with beans and meatballs sometime back, it is a really comforting dish. I don't think I will be in a hurry to repeat the chickpeas cauliflower combination.

This is not surprising, McDonald's puts calories on the menu and it is not making much of a difference. In New York where McDonald's has been publishing calorie counts since 2008, the average lunchtime purchase has dropped from 829 to 785 calories. This is about 5% only.
I guess the decision to put calories was more for awareness. Personally I rarely go to McDonalds but when I do, I don’t go there to eat healthy food. Calorie count will make no difference for me. I suppose for people who visit McDonalds often they may be influenced by the calories. Perhaps ordering a medium coke instead of large, or diet coke instead of regular coke, will make some people feel a lot better. And happy customers means improved customer retention. So perhaps the calorie counts are helping McDonalds and other fast food chains.
And did you know that sprite zero has only two calories? This reminds me of the Russian saying "drinking beer without vodka is a waste of money".
