    America's Top 5 "Healthiest" Fast Food restaurants.

    http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/food/...rants-2397396/

    No surprises here. The main determinants of "healthy" seem to be: whole grain, low fat, organic. Either way it's all grain based.

    And this is what really kills me, from the opening paragraph: "We practically live in our cars, so we need quick food, and please, wed like it to be healthy."

    It disturbs me that our culture is raising a whole generation of kids who not only eat crap, but who think eating it in the car out of a fast food package is the norm. ARGH!!!

    Well at least you can get a salad at Panera, but there's no telling what's in the dressing!

    For starters, you can pick from two whole-grain breads for your sandwich and have an apple with it instead of chips (though the chips are fine, too—they can be baked!).

    Eating at any fast food restaurant is a disaster. The salad dressings are the worst. I can't even imagine findind out what they put in them.

    That's good to know. I ate there once maybe three years ago and did not like it!

    I saw this story too and laughed. We have sooooo much work to do to spread the word.
    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
