Subway (along with McD's, Burger King, etc) adds a lot of chemicals to their bread. Most are generally regarded as safe, but there is one in particular, "azodicarbonamide," that you should be aware of as it's thought to cause asthma.

Azodicarbonamide: Another reason to avoid most bread

This compound is used in the manufacture of plastics and foam products. Interesting to note that the U.S. is one of the few nations in the world that actually allows it as a food ingredient. In fact, in Singapore, if you are caught using it in food manufacturing, you can be fined up to $450,000 and put in jail for 15 years.

Reading things like this is the main reason I completely avoid all fast food. I just don't understand why they add all of these chemicals. It doesn't take that many ingredients to make bread.

I try very hard to keep chemicals found in food, out of my diet. So much of my cooking is from scratch using foods that have to be prepared. Fresh meat, artisan bread, fresh or frozen veggies, etc. Within about five or six hours I can tell that I have had some chemical inducted food and feel lousy. I love to grab a nice large vine ripened tomato and snack on it. Or some lettuce leafs dipped in rice vinegar.

NO pics is ok. Every time I look at pics of your fantastic food, I gain 5 pounds!

Just finished off the leftovers of the Pork chop recipe you posted. That was awesome good! Pork Chops with a bunch of taters and gravy; What's not to love?

I'm not normally one who likes Kraut, but I'm going to try that next time!

I tore into that last chop last night like a starving man at a picnic! I almost licked the plate!
