SALT LAKE CITY -- We're constantly told eat this and not that. Some people are sick of it, and they're just plain rebelling.
They're tossing all the advice right out the window and creating and eating some of the unhealthiest foods ever; foods like this deep fried bacon shell crammed with scrambled eggs, hash browns and topped with a biscuit and gravy are all the craze.
Or how about bacon-filled waffles or fries made out of spam?
It's what one man calls "The Gross Food Movement."
Robert Ashley, writer for Gourmet.com, says, "I think that Americans suffer from having no native food culture. I think we're always coming up with these new bizarre trends and think that's part of what created this."
Now just to be fair, most people don't eat "gross foods" all the time. It's really more of a novelty.
