Oftentimes, we are on the go, have to travel or just want to indulge in the staple of the standard American diet (SAD) — fast food. Personally, I find most fast food restaurants convenient. They are quick, offer a good value and have predictable quality.
Here is what I order:
- Salad with proteins (chicken or beef) and without croutons/bread/corn/grains
- Burgers without buns, some places call them “wrapped in lettuces”
There’s nothing wrong with treating yourself once in a while to a small side of french fries (with garlic, yum!) or a smoothie/milk shake. Even Mark Sisson says that we should’t be hard on ourselves all the time (80/20 rule). Just be careful not to make it a daily (or for some even a weekly trip can be dangerous) meal!
My favorite joints are:
- SuperDuper Burgers
- Mixt Greens / Chop’t
