BBC against Shawarma

Not against my blog - the food, and not BBC per say, just a study... but you know what - I'd rather die happy with a shawarma pita in my hands then with arugula salad...

Study reveals 'shocking' kebabs

Doner kebabs sold in the UK contain "shocking" levels of salt, fat and calories, a survey has concluded.

Officers from 76 councils sampled 494 kebabs to test their nutritional value, during the Local Authority Coordinators of Regulatory Services (Lacors) study.

The average doner they tested contained almost 1,000 calories - half a woman's recommended daily intake.

Geoffrey Theobald, of Lacors, said: "The level of saturated fat and salt in some is a serious cause for concern."

He added that while they "would never consider kebabs part of a calorie-controlled diet" the true content of the average kebab was worrying.

Among the kebabs sampled - without salad or sauces - the average doner contained 98% of an adult's recommended daily salt and 148% of their daily saturated fat allowance.

Yea.. blah blah blah - so many words - to convince no one. It's yummy - and my only problem is that you can't get it from non terror-supporters outside of Israel.

I say, No to arugula - yes to Shawarma.
