I'm a little less likely to hate on Wendy's, it's my fast food fix of choice. Plus they have decent salads, just the dressings aren't very good (soybean oil, sugar, etc.). Cobb salad is my favorite.
I'm sort of notorious at my Wendy's for ordering a bun-less, mayo-less, ketchup-less, double cheeseburger. For a while they had sweet potatoes w/ butter and cinnamon.
Tod, what kind of oil do they cook the patties in?
Thanks for your thoughts and input. The hamburgers are cooked on the grill in it's own juices, grilled chicken is cooked the same way. Breaded chicken and fries are deep fried in a soy bean, cotton seed, and corn oil blend. More specifics on the web sight (the good and the bad).
I'm not thrilled about the oils that restaurants use, but in a pinch I will eat it. I do get nervous about where some of their product comes from, but i can say the same for lots of restaurants (fast food or otherwise) I try to buy organic and local as much as possible. I just feel better about it. If I do eat fast food it's usually regretted shortly after if you know what I mean :/
Thanks for your thoughts, 2 brains are better than 1. for thinking or eating. I think ?
This only lists the gluten free items (on the 2nd page), but it does say the grilled chicken has maltodextrin ("from a corn source") in it. I'm not sure if there's anything else.
But I do eat fast food sometimes, especially mexican, and you don't always know what you're getting. For instance, Del Taco's corn tortillas have gluten in them, as does the chili, but the fries don't. I'm pretty sure Burger King and a bunch of other places dust their fries with wheat flour.
I tried KFC's grilled chicken once and immediately regretted it. I Googled the ingredients, and it has at least a dozen. In a grilled chicken breast. If I remember correctly, one of them was wheat flour.
Tell you what. I'll eat all the grass-fed buffalo and you can keep the McFood for yourself. :)
Giving the primal diet a real go. Today's lesson mentioned not doing fast food, from your readings I get your a in-depth researcher.
From a newbies perspective I wouldn't be so quick to throw fast food under the bus. My food for thought-
Look at the Wendy's web sight, (A) grilled chicken with out the bun ask for extra lettuce (b) chili Made fresh daily (c) salads chopped fresh daily (d) fresh 100% north american beef no bun ask for extra lettuce.
The cost of the primal diet is expensive from a dollar stand point and controlling spoilage. I feel Wendy's can help mitigate these costs with their fresh choices, single portions and $$$ value.
Convenience is not a luxury, most of us don't have time to pick up road kill and properly process and prepare it ( some humor here), were busy working to pay bills- Wendy's is a best second option if you chose right
Mark I challenge you to give this some thought form your average readers perspective, and I would enjoy hearing any thoughts you may have.

Louisa, I never said healthier, I said second best option, please note: I also have a 1.5 acre garden and raise grass fed buffalo.
I'm happy to agree with you. there's no argument here.
No, you want to pretend fast food is an option because you own three franchised vending stations.
Answer me this: Which is worse, fasting for a week or eating McSlurry?
To any of the educated and without vested interest, the answer is simple. But you are in denial because you don't want to face the fact that you are poisoning your community. Having trouble sleeping? Sell those trash holes and break free. But don't pretend it's okay.
