I have a suggestion for any budding restaurateurs or someone looking to go into the fast food arena. Just because it is called fast food doesn't mean it has to be fried, on a bun, or made up entirely of 50 billion fat particles held together by salt and artificial sweeteners. Seriously. Taco Bell, I appreciate you thinking outside the bun but your food is still not exactly nutritious.
This has become a serious bone of contention for me over the past few days. I am trying to eat healthier. I promise. But I am also in charge of picking up the baby from daycare and caring for him all evening once we get home. This is the same child who reacts to his car seat at the end of the day like an animal hit by a tranquilizer dart. I cannot be expected to drag his dead weight with his little head lolling around into a healthy eating place because you refuse to put in a drive thru. On my way home I pass a Sonic, Jack in the Box, Chicken Express, Taco Something or Other, Wendys, McDonalds and Whataburger. Yes, I know McDonalds and many other fast food places carry salads. I am not impressed. I expect better.
Yes, I do know where the grocery store is. Please refer back to my sentence about the 22lb of dead weight. Its practically child cruelty to have to drag him into the grocery store. I am not asking for much. Just a place that serves good healthy salads, soups or nice deli sandwiches with a drive thru. My favorite place on the way home does a half avocado with chicken salad and a cup of soup or a side of fruit (real mixed fruit with kiwi and strawberries not mandarin oranges from a can). But alas, they have no drive thru. Please help a girl out.
**P.S. I could use a drive thru Starbucks too please, KTHX.
