This article makes a point that I frequently make. If you pay attention to what you eat, it’s very easy to eat healthily at fast food restaurants. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that fast food chains offer the easiest way to be healthy.
This is why I think that food snobs/health snobs/class snobs that look down on fast food are way off-base.
There are healthier options that exist. But they’ll all take a lot more effort and expense. And of course fast food chains also make it easy to be extremely unhealthy if you don’t pay attention to what you eat.
Note: The second half of this article gets a lot more political than something I’d usually link to in this blog. Feel free to ignore that if politics aren’t your thing. Also, please don’t comment on the political stuff here. If you’re interested in getting into a flamewar about WalMart, there are countless other places on the Internet where you can do that.
