The answer! Next...Which seafood snack won't add to your pirate booty?

Due to readers response we're now posting the next question with the previous answer!
And the answer is....
Even with very similar ingredients, these two omelets vary greatly in nutrition. Denny's Veggie Cheese Omelet is lower in calories (494), and fat (39 grams, which is still high) and saturated fat (12 grams). This is likely because it contains less cheese than Bob Evans Three Cheese Omelet, which adds three kinds of fatty cheese without the nutritional boost of any veggies. Bob Evans' omelet contains 771 calories and 67 grams of fat, and twice the saturated fat (24 grams). Eggs can be healthy, but how they are prepared, the number that you eat, and the fixings that are added will all affect their make-up in the end. Both of these restaurants will make your eggs or omelets with Egg Beaters upon request. Denny's Veggie Cheese Omelet with Egg Beaters contains more than 100 fewer calories (346), and much less fat (22 grams, 7 grams saturated). Even Bob Evans Three Cheese Omelet can be improved to 536 calories, 45 grams of fat, and 19 grams of saturated fat when Egg Beaters are used. Also ask about using egg whites whenever possible.

Arrr, matey! When you are craving a seafood treasure, Long John Silver's is the place to be. Here are two "Snack Box" choices, weighing in at four ounces each. Although deep-fried, you can steer your ship with the one hand while popping these bite-size beauties with the other. You can avoid walking the plank by picking the lower-fat winner. Is it LJS's Parmesan Fish Bites with Tartarrr sauce or their Popcorn Shrimp in Cocktail sauce?
