I'm back! Its been a while, but, I haven't had a MAil from the Cafe' for ages until now.
I'm very sorry, but I feel I must protest about the term "Junk Food." There is NO SUCH THING as "junk food," only JUNK thinking. FOOD is FOOD, unless some idiot has really well and truly turned it into junk by burning it, making a HUGE mess of it, making it unfit to eat, etc. You get the picture.
As for the companies implied, yes, they entice you to come and enjoy their meals, but, they MUST be good if everyone OVER EATS on them. People have MINDs and they chould know how to use them. It is up to them to control WHAT they eat and HOW MUCH they eat. But, to call the food they eat "junk" just because they over do it and they turn into something resembling Jabba The Hutt? That is very wrong!
The HEALTHIEST Burger I ever had was at McDonald's (I DON'T want to hear any put downs about this either!), and it is my all time FAVOURITE Burger. It is The McFeast. In case anyone isn't familiar with it, it is a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Lettuce, Onion and Tomato. It mightn't sound like much, but, there is more Salad with that burger than you would ever get with any other. Its mostly Lettuce, but there is also a nice big slice of Tomato as well as nice chunks of chopped Raw Onion. LOVELY! Lately, the Grand Angus has appeared on the Menu, and that, too, is a very lovley burger, with just as much Salad.
I always go for the Burgers with lots of Salad with it. I occasionally have the other, too, but they are just Treats, and I never over do it. Besides, I only ever get there occasionally.
Its all a matter of PERSONAL choice. Its up to YOU to decide WHAT you eat and HOW MUCH.
KFC? Forget it! Very little Salad with it. I just DON'T go there. Only their burgers are making a slight difference. I haven't tried any, though.
And now? Pizzas. My favourite Pizzas are. . . . . Reply
