Meat Spaghetti (a.k.a. Dr. Atkins Rolls Over in His Grave)

Posted in Meat Devices, STUFF ABOUT MEAT with tags , , on August 13, 2008 by chomposaurus

Do you crave pasta even when your hellish diet prevents you from eating carbs? Fear not, for scientists in New Zealand have invented meat spaghetti:

While testing the binding strength of meat, Mustafa Farouk unexpectedly found meat spaghetti – made from sheep or beef but transformed into colourful spaghetti-like strips.

“It tastes like meat and it can look like meat but we can actually change the composition of the product quite a lot so we can mask the meaty flavour,” Mike North from AgResearch says.

And with busy families demanding more convenient yet healthy foods AgResearch believes it is on to something. Kids love spaghetti but for many parents it’s hard to get them to eat meat – so the meaty, protein saturated, pasta version could be an innovative way of providing youngsters with vital nutrients and iron.

The article stretches the need for meat spaghetti a bit. What parent has trouble getting their kids to eat meat? Haven’t they ever heard of chicken fingers? But I do believe there is a market for meat spaghetti, especially among the young and the fit who are tired of eating a Chipolte Bol for their carbless lunches.

In a recent issue, Men’s Health did a rundown of the worst food in America. Predictably, many meat dishes were featured. The worst steak was Lonestar’s 20 oz T-Bone, with 124 grams of fat. Macaroni Grill’s spaghetti and meatball meal “satisfies your calorie requirements for an entire day.” Chipotle’s chicken burrito turned out to be WORSE than the beef or pork, coming in at 47 grams of fat and 1200 calories. Skip the tortilla and rice people – it tastes better that way. Ruby Tuesday’s “Healthy” Turkey Burger even comes in at 71 grams of fat and over 1100 calories.Although, lest anyone start holding meat solely responsible, check out the stats for the Chili’s Awesome Blossom:

2,710 calories
203 g fat 194 g carbs
6,360 mg sodium

That’s all for a SINGLE ONION, people.
