    im sure there can be a "Healthier fast food joint but to make one cheap is a whole different stroy.. if you want fresh non-processed foods.. your gonna pay more money because without all the stuff they do to process food theres a higher chance of spoilage....

    but wouldnt it be true that fast food sells quicker and is made quicker because of it being fast??? if thats the case theres no need for processed food products that are loaded with fillers and preservatives and grease because the food is made and prepped as soon as it is recieved.... i see a conundrum here

    There are quite a few healthy fast food places.
    Sandwich bars and supermarkets.

    You can get packaged hot food (like roast chicken) from supermarkets, they also sell sandwiches and other cold foods, as well as pre-made meals you can microwave.
    There are some decent currys at the supermarkets, and they do pretty low priced takeouts for 2 of Indian and Chinese meals.
    (at least they do in the UK, hope its the same where you are)

    Chipotle.

    It's a little more expensive, but the food is of high quality. The burritos are very big, so you might even split one with another person to save money.

    Actually their bread is packed full of crap and the cheese is just wrong.

    Fast food, something based on pasta is fast and damned delicious like linguine or even bolognaise can be done in 20-30 minutes.

    Get a grip.

    He's clearly referring to the Americanisation of Mexican food, not saying it's **** because white people cooked it.

    if you're living in the US, has anyone else been seeing those new KFC $.50 Hotwings commericals? They promote it as "the taste is inside the chicken" making you believe there is a new delicious taste to them. showing all the spices being tossed around lol. So last Friday I got some Hotwings and they still taste like they always have been... lol. It wasn't even spicy. i think i got an old batch as it didn't taste fresh. fresh batch hotwings are awesome!!

    Yea ma and pa places are usually actually pretty good. We have one here in my town thats been around for decades and is family owned, and surprisingly still in business seeing as how its only open when they feel like being open. They seriously have no set open/close hours.

    I used to go to MCDs EVERY night after work for 2 and a half years when I worked at UPS and ordered 4 big macs every night and ate them all. Mostly due to the fact when I got off work I was DYING of starvation from working so hard that I couldnt wait to eat. And I still only weigh 123lbs. I weighed even less back then, somewhere around 110lbs.

    Explain to me how it's racist in any way shape or form? All he meant was that real south of the border food is far better than the adopted "mexican" cuisine we see in this country (which isn't actually mexican most of the time).

    Obviously there's not a lot of healthy choices offered at fast food places. Wendy's & Chick Fillet have grilled chicken sandwiches that are much better for you that deep fried ones. Wendy's chili is mostly onions, green peppers and beans with a tad of ground beef mixed in. Wendy's also has baked potatoes, if you don't dump a ton of butter and salt on it then it's not to bad for you. Most fast food places serve salads. The trick is not to mix what healthy things they do offer with things like soda and greasy, salty fries - it kind of defeats the point!

    he said "white people's mexican"


    it would be no different if i had said something like "black people's mexican" or "mexican's white people food"
    i would be shot down soo quickly and called a racist

    just so you know
    im not mad at all....

    im just saying watch how you word stuff


    if you meant people who arent mexican then say :

    "its better than how non hispanics cook mexican food"

    Nonsense. He meant versus authentic Mexican FOOD. He wasn't talking about people. I'm sure a tortilla somewhere was offended.

    Well, not to derail the thread any more, but yes, it was referring to a class of people by race ("white people") followed by his own apparent stereotype. He could have said it differently, but he didn't and the wording he used was racist.

    It was referring to the type of FOOD. Now if you can prove to me that food is offended, I'll agree with you.

    Who cares what he meant,its his opinion as a human being in a supposedly civilized world on a civilized forum,if people dont like it they should leave the thread or add him/her to the ignore list.
