No More Popeyes Fried Chicken...
Posted 20 March 2010 - 03:04 AM
I had to let go one of my favs since I was growing up , the spicy fried chicken from Popeyes. So, I decided to binge on 6 wings yesterday and a small mash potatoes with gravy, after 2 hours I was sitting still in front of my computer and boom my heart started racing and became instantly light-headed. My heart rate settled down after an hour after the episode but returned within the same hour again. I pretty much know it was the extremely sodium shock that I experience that produce the eventual spike. I bought low sodium bacon from oscar meyers today and will cut the high sodium foods out of my diet. Was a wake up call...

You could search on the internet and I am sure you can find the ingredients to re-create PopEyes at home using Soy.
