Have you heard about the coming changes Chick-fil-A announced concerning some of their yucky ingredients?
The popular fast food chain has promised to remove dyes, HFCS and artificial coloring from several products and is testing new, healthier methods of preparing certain other products.

As a gluten-free family, we really appreciate Chick-fil-A’s GF options like grilled chicken nuggets. And these newly announced changes are certainly a step in the right direction.
However, as I stated in Monday’s post about Why We Stopped Eating Chicken from the Grocery Store, their chicken itself is not the safest. Food Babe Vani Hari–who was instrumental in bringing about these recent changes at Chick-fil-A–points out that her number one concern, the chicken, has not yet been addressed.
During my meeting with them, we prioritized my requests and my #1 request has still not been addressed, which is to provide safer and more sustainable chicken that is raised without anti-biotics and GMO feed and that is not grown in terrible living conditions. [Source]
I echo her concern and hope that Chick-fil-A will continue to listen to the voices of their consumers. Have you contacted Chick-fil-A to voice your opinion?
