KFC Releases Their Chicken And Biscuit Bowl

Kentucky Fried Chicken and Biscuit Bowl

KFC Chicken And Biscuit Bowl

Oh my Gawd, that looks so good doesn't it? Kentucky Fried Chicken has released a brand new bowl called the Chicken and Biscuit bowl. I saw this ad on TV just the other day and it really caught my attention. This is sooooo yummy. Look at it! You can just taste the yummyness of it. The bottom layer is KFC mashed potatoes, then a good helping of kernel corn, then bite size pieces of chicken followed by their homestyle white pepper gravy and then all topped off with a 3 layer cheese blend.

You can just taste the creamyness of it.

When I first saw this, I thought to myself, how gross this shit is. Tons of calories, fat, carbohydrates and lots of dairy. Good lord I thought to myself, who would eat this. I went to the KFC website and looked up the nutritional value of it. The Chicken and Biscuit Bowl nutritional value is 860 calories with 44 grams of fat. 11 grams of Saturated fat and 4.5 grams of Trans fat. Geesh. It gets better. 2430 grams of sodium which their website says is 101% of the DV (Daily Value based on a 2000 calorie diet), 88 grams of carbohydrates and here's some good news … 7 grams of fiber!

I quickly considered the marketing of it and realized that people actually eat this stuff and DO look at it as being scrumptious.

You know how they say that police can interview two witnesses to the same crime and get two completely different reports? Two people can see the same thing in a different manner. The same is true of food.

How does this picture below look to you?

salmon and brown rice

I look at this plate above and my mouth begins to water. A Salmon fillet with a side of brown rice and some vegetables. I'd add a little Udo's Oil for some good fats, some fresh organic pepper and a large side of fresh green's and then tear into it.

What looks good to you on your plate? What do you crave in the form of foods?

Does brown rice turn you off or on? Are you into skinned chicken breast, or does your mouth begin to water at the thought of breaded chicken, chicken wings or this gawd awful Chicken and Biscuit Bowl?

People see foods in different ways. When I first started juicing, my roommates got pretty weird and made a lot of jokes, while I sipped away on the stuff at any time of the day. It certainly wasn't always like this as I used to crave soda pop and French fries.

What really turned me around was how I felt after I ate. I found that as I paid more attention to how my body functioned, I began to appreciate the fuel I put into it a lot more.

I started drinking green tea back in 1991 and when I first ran into my nephews after starting, I let them try some. They said it tasted fine but they preferred soda pop. I asked them to describe how soda pop makes them feel. They said that they noticed how their energy levels rocketed skyward pretty fast, but then they crashed shortly after. They had never considered the effect of liquid sugar (how I define pop) before. Then they paid attention to the green tea (Fortune Delight) that I had them try and they noticed that they felt better, had clearer thinking and didn't experience the same crash.

When you switch to a natural diet, it might taste a bit odd because your body is used to all the fats, sugars, carbs and oils in it, where natural foods taste – well…. Natural. However, once you begin to pay attention to how you feel, and the results that you get from the creation of the new eating habits and the elimination of the crap, er… less natural foods, you begin to appreciate it a lot more.

Over time, you may dip back into the old foods (ie: crap) and immediately notice how your brain begins to fog, you burn out and just generally don't feel so good.

I urge you to examine what it is you're eating.

Good article Rob, the food from KFC doesn't appeal to me at all where as the second one appeals to me much more. I think that we are often brain washed via advertisement into thinking something is good when in reality it is the opposite. The graphic example of the food from KFC gives me pause about what else I may think is good but that is the opposite.

Great article Rob! Healthy Food Can Taste Great. That is a message that we hear very rarely.

A year ago, both would have appealed... I would have went for the bowl first, then proceeded to eat the fish and rice. Now, only the salmon and rice (along with the suggested greens) appeal to me.

The stars and strips in the background of the advertisment makes it almost as if they're saying "its patriotic to eat this". Interesting.

First I'd like to say "Congrats on weight loss"!I'm struggling to lose 50lbs. I just had to google this KFC bowl because I've gotten 2 emails recently from my friends asking me if I've tried it. They said it was so yummy! I'm trying to lose weight, not put it back on was my response. Its total crap. The sodium content is way off the charts. I'd go for the salmon and brown rice anyday.

Yeah, I work at KFC and you wouldn't believe how many people order that stuff. Only (and I don't know if this is how they are made at every KFC) our biscuit bowls have two extra scoops of the white gravy, in addition to all that other stuff.

I see how all that stuff is cooked, and I wouldn't even think about eating it as much as some people do.
