Universal Studios Theme Parks Give A Holiday Gift To Your Heart

trans.jpgIt seems New York City wasn’t the only one ready to push trans fats off the plate. At their theme parks in Hollywood and Florida, Universal Studios on Christmas Eve shifted almost 90% of their menu to trans fat-free oils. Everything from French fries to fried chicken is now healthier, and less likely to contribute to the artery-clogging bad cholesterol produced by trans fats. It’s a shocking number, but the average American eats almost 5 pounds of trans fats per year. Ugh. While Universal’s commitment to a healthier menu is exciting, they won’t be the only one changing oils this year. From the article,

“Besides Disney and Universal, SeaWorld Orlando also pledged earlier this year to limit fats and calories in some meals and created a whole-food restaurant where food is prepared without trans fats and preservatives.”

Pretty radical developments in the cooking industry are occurring to help improve the health of Americans; including children. I have to imagine that once several of these dominoes fall, the entire country will go trans fat free. It’s a welcome change to help fight obesity. Makes you wonder how the folks at the pro trans fat site will respond. Perhaps they’ll move on to downplaying the dangers the second-hand smoke.
