Fast food gets a bad rap and rightfully so. It's believed by many that fast food is responsible for poor health, obesity, and heart disease. I have to vehemently disagree and will give three examples why:
Fast: Leftovers are fast food. When making a pot of chili, quinoa, brown rice, or salad (for example) make enough that you can always go back to the fridge and get more a few days later.
Faster: Have bags of frozen veggies on the ready. These can be steamed or chowed (wok) in a few minutes. Also sweet potatoes are easily nuked and enjoyed.
Fastest: Fresh fruit and vegetables are the ultimate fast food. Even most gas stations will have bananas or apples available at the checkout counter. Peel and eat or wipe off an eat.
Get out of the drive-thru window and begin to flip the notion of fast food on its head.
PS - now that I have a Vitamix fast food has a whole new identity. More on that at a later date.
Any other suggestions on fast food?
