I think it's probably convenience that attracts people to fast-food, I mean.. Let's face it.. People today are lazy, it's a fact of society. Most of them don't want to be bothered to actually put effort into a meal, let alone cook; it's kind of sad really.. Especially since it's leading much of the world into an obesity epidemic as more and more children are taught eating habits and brought up in environments that are extremely nutritionally damaging.
Whatever the case it's fast-food that contributes to a lot of these problems.. This is why when I see healthier alternatives that are both delicious and affordable at fast-food chains that I'm so tempted to root for them and applaud their efforts - This is the focus of the article believe it or not; something positive that I wish to praise rather than negative in spite of the articles start - I'm simply voicing my opinion and sadness at seeing the human race in such straights and my desire to see the human race improve itself and get over these problems. Perhaps pointing these healthy alternatives out will help.. Perhaps not.. Who knows? It'll be fun at any rate.
16g fat, 3.5g saturated fat
The McChicken Sandwich here is actually healthier than it's grilled counter-parts which is strange because in the grand scheme of things we tend to assume that something grilled is going to be healthier than something fried. Some how that's not the case with this sandwich, I don't know how. Fucking fast-food logic, goddamn fast-food chains are capable of bullshitting with reality and screwing with the very fabric of time and space evidently. Goddamn you Ronald McDonald, I know your secret!
Taco Bell Fresco Style Grilled Steak Soft Taco:
Well, here are it's stats;
|5.0g fat, 1.5g saturated fat|
|Surprisingly this little fucker ain't bad for you either, it's quite an acceptable alternative and choice.. Very much so considering it's a pretty decent sized taco and very filling with the inclusion of steak rather than beach-sand taco-filling.. I wonder if the cow used for the steak was given a day at the beach before it was slaughtered for the taco? I'd like to think the cow sun-bathed on the beach for a bit, infusing itself with beach-sand as well in some way we'd never know about, and providing a sun-cured sort of taste to the beef itself.. Yeah.. Must of been a fucking suicidal cow.|
Taco Bell Cinnamon Twists:
These things are mother fucking delicious. Their stats follow;
60g fat, 0g saturated fat
There's nothing really at Taco Bell that counts as honest and genuine Mexican cuisine, the fact of the matter is a coconut is about as Mexican as anything at Taco Bell but nevertheless these little bastards and things like them make Taco Bell worth going to. I may never eat one of their beach tacos again but I'd go for these in a heart-beat.. Though come to think of it given the granules of what I assume to be cinnamon sugar on these they may be prime items to hide sand in or on in plain sight.
Taco Bell is out to get me..
