Although it isn’t my favorite restaurant, I’ve spent a great deal of time looking for Waffle House nutrition information, because it is one of my husband’s favorites. Sources say that the restaurant has not made their nutritional information available.
So, sometimes, the best thing that you can do is estimate. My husband’s favorite plate is a t-bone steak, 2 eggs over easy, two slices of toast and a double order of hash browns.
Luckily, he’s got some kind of phenomenal natural metabolism. He never gains weight, no matter what he eats. He works out five days a week. So, he’s relatively healthy, but I keep harping at him about what those white potatoes, white bread and red meat could be doing to his long-term health.
The latest research indicates that the eggs are not that bad. People that regularly eat them actually have lower serum cholesterol than people that never eat them. Of course, I prefer boiled eggs. They are full of nutrients and lower in fat. But, then I’m not a marathon runner.
1978 Boston marathon winner Gayle Barron apparently enjoys Waffle House nutrition enough to make it a thrice weekly stop. She recently became the company’s spokeswoman. Her favorite plate is grilled chicken, hash browns and scrambled eggs.
My biggest concern, these days, is avoiding trans-fat. Researchers say that trans-fats are the worst for heart and circulatory health. The state of California says that they cause cancer. From what I have been able to determine, Waffle House does not use trans-fats. But, I haven’t made a tour of their kitchen.
The donuts and pastries that they keep on the counter typically contain large amounts of trans-fats. So, if you like to eat at the restaurant, order the stuff off of the grill and skip the baked goods. That’s my suggestion.
Other fast food restaurants that we have visited post nutritional information on the restaurant walls. I have yet to see any Waffle House nutrition information in any location, even the newest ones.
When we do visit the restaurant, I usually go with the grilled chicken salad. It’s not bad, although the lettuce and tomatoes are not the freshest.
For people trying to lose weight, the restaurant might be your best choice for the middle of the night. At least the food is hot off the grill and coffee refills are free.
In order to get exact Waffle House nutrition information for your favorite plate, you might want to contact the company. Otherwise a guesstimate will have to do.
