Yet another chain restaurant wants to cash in on our health concerns without really backing it up.

This time it’s the cafeteria chain, Luby’s, with something they’re calling the Livin’ Smart menu. I’m always hopeful when I read something like this, and then I dig in deeper.

More accurate would be Livin’ Ignorant, as Luby’s seems to think none of us cares about the level of sodium in our food and has helpfully left that metric off. So we can’t tell if, like much restaurant food, it is salty and addictive. They must have missed the recent New York Times story on sodium.

I wonder why they left that column out?
