  • Wendy's Baja Salad

    Sooooo I would like to hear some comments about the primality of the Wendy's Baja Salad. It has iceberg and romaine lettuce (maybe another kind), guacamole, mozarella and colby cheese, tomatoes, onions....then on the side, Wendy's chili, salad dressing, and tortilla strips. I always throw away the tortilla strips and salad dressing, then add the chili and 2 of their sour creams. Here's my synopsis.....some pretty good primal stuff, like the greens and veggies and guac, some not bad primal stuff like beef in the chili and sour cream, but probably not from grass fed beef, and the cheese same thing. The beans in the chili are probably the most non-primal thing in there the way I eat it, and there aren't that many of those. I am on the road with not much money to spend, and I just ate one Thoughts? I think I could do much worse, but could probably do better?

    I'd bet soy oil makes an appearance in the guac, chili, sour cream or cheese.

      Soy oil and corn syrup in the chili.

      You probably could not do much better, it's a pain in the ass how much soy oil and corn syrup ends up in everything that is affordable and convenient.

              Mmm oleoresin rosemary. Sounds yummy.
              I find your lack of bacon disturbing.

                  They are extremely cheap to make, and allows industry giants to obtain monopoly patents concerning food preparation. They're working diligently to phase out the farmer. Funny enough, pesticides are rarely needed to be used on soy and canola, because the plant in its raw form is very toxic, and even insects avoid it(you even see this when they instinctively avoid vegetable oil based margarines)

                  If you're interested in how seed oils are made, have a gander.

                    To add to Derps seed oil seminar..livestock wont touch canola oil. Here in Oregon, we recently stopped rapeseed from being planted in the Willamette Valley. The organic farmers fought hard to prevent the planting of it.

                        Thanks dude. Even if it's redundant, I do like to warn people about things like that. It should be noted that the same petrochemical companies that produce these oils, and the pharmaceutical companies are a very profitable monopoly. They are conveniently owned by the same people. One profits from doing the damage, and the other group profits by treating it forever. It's really quite sickening, and I wish I were just being a tinfoil hatter -- because being this way is quite eye opening and very depressing. I've been taking racetams just from the anxiety of knowing some things I know.

                            National brands and chains are a completely different beast. Their products are required to be absolutely identical at all 1000+ locations nationwide which means everything is centrally produced and shipped. It's not a simple addition of a few preservatives or frozen bits, they have to reformulate every recipe from the ground up for maximum longevity.

                            The ingredient list is a row of dominos that starts with one off color, a dye to cover it up, salt or sugar to mask the metallic taste of the dye, MSG to balance the salt, etc. etc.

                              Racetams! I am familiar with leviracetam, the anticonvulsant, but must admit I was not familiar with the over the counter uses of racetams and nootropics, until now! I'm in the pharmaceutical field, and I must admit it's rather disturbing seeing the direction of CW and how the SAD is contributing to the whole vicious cycle you describe above.....although I was not aware that there are petrochemical and pharmaceutical companies owned by the same people.....but it doesn't surprise me either.
