Why Fast Food is a Horrible Thing and the MUCH better Alternative

Well, I think we can all admit that most of the time fast food is pretty damn horrible. Not to mention the fact that it seems to destroy you from the inside.  

Equally, I see the appeal. It's fast and cheap.I have realized quite a lot of people that go to Macdonald's and other fast food chains are really quite lazy. Why do you think a lot of them are so obese?  

No one deserves fast food. No one deserves heart disease, no one deserves diabetes and no one deserves obesity. 

If I haven't convinced you then look at this article, go read The Omnivore's Dilemma or watch this. 

The alternative is simple. Fresh, easy food you cook at home. Check out my blog roll where you can find food blogs packed with fantastic recipes. A few cheap and VERY easy (I'm talking 5-10 minutes) recipes if you're in a lazy mood and that happens to all of us. 

- Udon Noodles with Soy Sauce, Spring Onions and a little Sweet Chili Sauce. This is one I sort of invented but I love.
-Pasta with Pesto (You can actually make the pesto on the weekend or buy a little pot) 
- Lettuce Leaves with Satay (which is easier to make than you think, just mix peanut butter, soy sauce, fish sauce, lime, sesame oil, coriander and a little chili) and Egg White Noodles
-Guacamole with Cheesy Tortillas 

As I always say with both food and fashion. Experiment! If you're too busy in the week to cook than cook meals on weekends and then pop them in the freezer. 

Fast food is bad for both you and the earth around you. So do us all a favour and don't eat it! Of coarse if you love fast food no one's going to stop you from eating it occasionally but too much of it is bad for everyone. 

Stay fabulously healthy

  1. Great blog post. Some people just get stuck in bad habits, others don't understand what they are eating and some don't really care. It's important to inspire people to make a change for their health so well done on doing that. Everything in moderation!!!
