Don't Americans have any healthy fast food? If you know what's in it, and how it's made, and know the integrity of the place you're buying it from, it
can be OK.
Avoid the fast food burgers, they're probably one of the worst. Fries are very, very, very bad for you. If you have to go there, these places should
sell green vegie salads. They do up here.
Up here, we have sub sandwich places, where you choose what goes in it. Lots of fresh vegies, some lean meats (if you want), on a whole wheat bun is
delicious and healthy. They are also made in front of you, with the sandwich maker wearing gloves, that get changed for every sandwich made.
Tacos can be healthy, if you add lots of lettuce and tomatoes. Get a salad with it. Don't eat too many, too many calories will make it unhealthy.
Salad bars. Fast. Healthy, if freshness and cleanliness regulations are followed.
Fiber = whole grains, all vegies, fruits, seeds, nuts. Eat lots of vegies and fruits every day. 5 to 10 servings.
Learn how the food is cooked. Even the slowest restaurant food can be worse for you that some of the healthy faster food, if it's cooked with lots of
fats, salts, or fried. Or dropped on the floor, or if the food handler isn't clean or healthy. Or the ingredients sit too long, maybe on their way to
Learn how to cook. Not just barbeque. One of the best thing a person can do for themselves. Get a crock pot and learn about it.
Just noticed the poster above me. They sound like they found a good healthy pizza place. I had to learn to make my own, there are no pizza places near
Whole grain crust, lots of fresh vegies, and herbs. Nothing fast about it though, the dough takes a couple of hours to make.
See, just research what you're eating. And if you know it's unhealthy, eat it only sometimes, and get a salad with it.....
