A single donut (weighing 1.28 .oz) contains 152 calories compared to:
spinach – 4 servings
cantaloupes – 1 1/2
asparagus – 15 stalks
tomatoes – 5
This illustrates the tremendous advantage to the housewife who has to pay high prices for foods which can be replaced by a single donut to provide the necessary calorie needs of her family.
