A Quick Tip by Charley2
Someone has to speak up for McDonald’s. I’ll gladly accept the challenge. I’ve eaten their burgers in cities across the nation since 1964 and I’m still munching with delight. The regular hamburger is my favorite, with the perfect combination of soft bun, meat patty, catsup, mustard, dill pickle and chopped onion. For the price, I’m always surprised by the consistency, the lack of grease, the flavor and the…well, unami.
Transfat? Suck it up folks. I’d rather eat their fries at lunch than a container of yogurt or organic tofu. I’ll pass on their cheeseburger but only because I’m not fond of their cheese. If I feel exceptionally hungry I’ll go for a Big Mac or a McRib (processed pork at its best), if available. Their upgraded coffee, especially their double lattes and espresso, comes very close to the Seattle brand and at a much better price.
A pleasant diversion is a McFishburger. For those who think McDonald’s is too popular to be good, too cheap to be worthy or too tasty to be healthful, I can almost guarantee that their McFish, for instance, will do potentially less damage to you and the environment than that slice of over-fished cod, farm-raised salmon and stale, marinated catfish chunks, all overlapped on piles of smelly crushed ice in your supermarket, next to the containers of slimy (and aging) baby octopi and crawfish from China.
Remember, McDonald's doesn't make fattys. People who eat too much do.
