Did you know?

Fluoride is a known poison to your body, more toxic than lead and nearly as toxic as arsenic. Fluoride disrupts collagen synthesis, thereby breaking down collagen in your muscles, tendons, cartilage, bone, kidneys, lungs and skin.

The food additive monosodium glutamate (MSG) could lead to obesity. Recent research found that people who eat MSG in their meals are more likely to be overweight or obese. What’s more, the link between high MSG intake and being overweight held even after accounting for the total number of calories people ate. MSG is sometimes intentionally hidden under other names – none of our food contains MSG or any forms of it.

High Fructose Corn Syrup – Most fats are formed in your liver, and when sugar enters your liver, it decides whether to store it, burn it or turn it into fat. Fructose, however, bypasses this process and turns full speed ahead into fat – We try to stay away from products containing HFCS whenever possible. Presently using Simply Heinz for this reason – does not contain HFCS..

Artificial Sweeteners – The final report of a seven-year study on aspartame (also known as Nutra-Sweet or Equal) has linked it to high rates of lymphomas, leukemia and other cancers in rats. The rats were given the equivalent of four to five bottles of diet soda a day for a human.

Potassium Bromate – If you are exposed to a lot of bromine, your body will not hold on to the iodine that it needs. Iodine affects every tissue in your body — not just your thyroid.  Bromides are a common endocrine disruptor.  It competes for the same receptors that are used in the thyroid gland to capture iodine. This will inhibit thyroid hormone production resulting in a low thyroid state. Potassium Bromate is a dough conditioner found in commercial bakery products and some flours – we do not used bromated flour, we use imported Italian flour.

Nine of the 12 food additives listed here have been linked to an increased risk of cancer. These include: Sodium Nitrate/Nitrite, BHA and BHT, Propyl Gallate, Trans Fats, Aspartame, Acesulfame-K, Food Colorings (Blue 1, 2, Red 3, Green 3, Yellow 6), Potassium Bromate – most of our products and meats are nitrite free and do not contain artificial colorings.

Food Dyes – A study has found that the E-numbered food dyes (such as tartrazine (E102), ponceau 4R (E124), sunset yellow (E110), carmoisine (E122), quinoline yellow (E104) and allura red AC (E129) do as much damage to children’s brains as lead in gasoline, resulting in a significant reduction in IQ. Our foods do not contain artificial colorings

Processed Foods – One of the best ways to avoid food additives is to cut way back on the processed foods in your diet and instead focus your meals on whole foods – we make most of our menu items from scratch from fresh ingredients thereby serving foods that are not processed.

BPA in register receipts – Remember that BPA is an endocrine disrupter, which means it mimics or interferes with your body’s hormones and “disrupts” your endocrine system. The glands of your endocrine system and the hormones they release are instrumental in regulating mood, growth and development, tissue function, metabolism, as well as sexual function and reproductive processes – our register receipts are BPA free.

BPA and Children – BPA should be taken out of all products intended for babies or children. The cumulative effect of being exposed to even minuscule amounts of BPA from cans, bottles, plates and all other sources over the years can eventually spell serious trouble for your child. Research tells us the chemical can raise your risk for a long list of serious health problems:

Microwaved Food – Microwaved food has been associated with the following problems:

  • Causes your food to vibrate at very high frequencies, changing your food’s chemical structure, structurally deforming its molecules and potentially making nutrients unrecognizable and unusable by your body.
  • Creates the formation of free radicals and carcinogenic molecules.
  • May result in actual changes to cellular DNA.
  • May corrupt or destroy biophotons (light energy in living food).

Stay Healthy – the secret to your health, and your children’s health, is by preparing Real Food from whole ingredients, preferably local, the way humans have done it for thousands of years.

Although Ron’s is not perfect, we do strive to prepare the healthiest foods for you at reasonable prices. I read all the labels for the food that we serve and personally assure you that they include the healthiest ingredients available. Most of our chicken is hormone and antibiotic free, fresh never frozen, including breasts, chicken fingers and “scratch made” boneless wings. We serve hormone and antibiotic free filet mignon, burgers, NY strip steaks and roast beef, hand cut by our chefs. All of our soups are “scratch made” with NO bases, artificial flavors or preservatives. Our dressings and sauces are “scratch made” from fresh ingredients that do not include unneeded artificial ingredients, additives or preservatives. Don’t forget to save room for our desserts. They are the best, and again “scratch made” without artificial ingredients, colorings or additives. We make the healthy choice wherever possible in the interest of serving fresh healthy food. In my opinion when trying to eat healthy you should not concern yourself with calories as much as quality. Limit your intake of starches and don’t be afraid of healthy fats.
