OMG ... Sausage calorie count

Postby Wobbles34 » Sun Jun 09, 2013 4:03 pm

I've just had one of my honey beef sausages for lunch.. put it in my calorie count and its 223 calories... FOR ONE SAUSAGE :shock: :shock:

Seeing as I use to have three in a bbq sitting (not including all the other meats).... and then picking at them after the bbq....

Wow.. its like 2 kit kats per little sausage.

Sausages are real rubbish meat. I use to be a signwriter and worked for a lot of butcher shops so I've seen a lot of sausages being made. Basically they use the trimmed off meat and fat (mostly fat) from their good cuts of meat. More than one butcher has told me he has gotten in trouble with the health inspectors for putting in too much meat! I stay away from sausages...they are way too costly weight wise. A small piece of good quality meat will do you so much more good...and it tastes better! :D

One possible solution (perhaps the only one) is to make them yourself. The casings could be purchased from a butcher. The meat and fillers separately, using one of the many online recipes. By controlling the amount of fat and meat and making filler with healthy options - grains, vegetables, etc a healthy, low Kj sausage could be attained.

:? Well thats definitely put me off sausages YUK!!! I must say... I've never been a huge sausage fan... out of all the meats, its one I could easily avoid, but it just shows how we eat for the sake of eating. Even not really liking them, still never stopped me from eating them because they were there. NO MORE SAUSAGES FOR ME. x

Hey CronicBadger... thanks for the post. We use to have a sausage making machine, which was quite fun (and a lot of giggles) making them, but I use to hate the smell afterwards. That always turned me off, all that meat and skin etc. It never was the same. I think I'm gona steer clear of sausages all together, I would rather have a lean fillet or chicken breast :)

I just realised that in my last post I wrote "liestyle" and not "lifestyle"- Freudian slip? :lol:
