Robin’s Healthy Take: Boardwalk Food by Robin Miller in Robin's Healthy Take, August 8, 2011
I’m still traveling with my family and this week it’s boardwalk time! I adore the boardwalk in Ocean City, New Jersey; it conjures up incredible childhood memories and now I’m creating new magical moments with my own kids. I don’t exactly recall the boardwalk grub I ate when I was little, but I’m sure the offerings haven’t changed much: waffles stuffed with ice cream, cheese fries, heavily-topped pizzas, loaded nachos, fresh fudge, cotton candy, hot dogs/chili dogs and frozen custard. What HAS changed is the portion sizes. They’re enormous. You know it’s bad when there’s a prize for consuming a 26-inch pizza. Really? Can you imagine a prize for consuming salad? Not likely.
