A recent title in the news: “Cheesecake Factory dinged as unhealthiest U.S. eatery” Why is this a surprise? First off the bartenders at the Cheesecake Factory make a great Martini. The second thing to consider is to breakdown the name Cheesecake Factory.
Cheese*cake = Now let’s start at the beginning of Cheesecake Factory and look at the word (Cheese). Here are some fun cheese facts and I love cheese. Please don’t take the Cheese away:

1 oz. serving

  1. Blue Cheese 99 calories 8g fat
  2. Brie Cheese 94 calories 8g fat
  3. Cheddar Cheese 113 calories 9g fat
  4. Feta Cheese 74 calories 6g fat
  5. Goat Cheese 75 calories 6g fat
  6. Mozzarella Cheese 84 calories 6g fat
  7. Swiss Cheese 106 calories 8g fat

Now we go to breaking down the word (cake). There are probably 100 disturbing reasons why sugars are terribly unhealthy. This restaurant magnet sells (cake) in the name. To give you an idea of how sweet Cakes are let’s look at some of the most sugar filled deserts:

  1. McDonald’s Large RoloMcFlurry – 830 calories, 26 teaspoons of sugar.
  2. Denny’s Oreo Blender Blaster – 890 calories, 19.25 teaspoons of sugar
  3. Coldstone Creamery Gotta Have It Oreo Creme Ice Cream – 1,060 calories, 22.75 teaspoons of sugar
  4. CinnabonPecanbon – 1,080 calories, 19 teaspoons of sugar
  5. Dairy Queen Banana Cream Pie Blizzard – 1,090 calories, 29 teaspoons of sugar
  6. Chili’s Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie – 1,250 calories, 40.75 teaspoons of sugar
  7. Applebee’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae – 1,550 calories, 52 teaspoons of sugar
  8. Outback Steakhouse Chocolate Thunder From Down Under – 1,554 calories, 33 teaspoons of sugar
  9. Cheesecake Factory Chocolate Tower Truffle Cake – 1,679 calories, 51.5 teaspoons of sugar
  10. The Keg Carrot Cake a la mode – 2,344 calories, 65 teaspoons of sugar (just 7 teaspoons shy of 1.5 CUPS)!

When we put Cheese and Cake together and multiply it in a factory setting we’re going to get some serious compounding negative results that taste great. Don’t get me wrong I eat at Cheesecake Factory occasionally. Probably once a year and I know it’s a sugar and fat den. I know that when I walk into the place because I read the sign over the doorway. So when I go into the Cheesecake Factory my eating guard is up. Three quarters of the menu can be tossed in the garbage. If you’re looking for some alternative healthy eating advice follow Chris.

What I like about the Cheesecake Factory is its great space and has quality service. My point is we have to pay more attention to the names on the wall. Like the name like EggCracker. It stands for two things = Animal Welfare Eggs and Cracking them perfectly every time. The one inch chop and don’t stop. Read the signs.

I'm an artist that made an Egg Cracker in 2006. I cracked an egg and made a mess. Then made an egg cracker out of clay. The rest is history. I can't tell you how many people, friends and family enjoy using it. Be the Master of Cracking Eggs.
