Hi hi bamabelle,
So I'm looking at what you're eating (sopressata and the cheeses) and I'm thinking, "she's either Italian or a NYer," but your name is bamabelle, so I'm thinking a transplant? And one who loves NY food.
Here's one way of getting through the McD urges (I haven't eaten there since the 1980s). Google how they raise their beef. The clear cutting of the rain forests. The hormones. The prodding of sick cows (illegal, but it goes on). Look at the nasty re-used oil they use for their french fries. The facts will make you ill. If you have to, write it on a card and pull it out when you have the urge to eat fast food - because they're all basically the same.
Substitute: Grass fed burger. If you have to have the bread, use sourdough with no additives (or an English muffin with no additives). Oh crap, I've been away so long that I almost forgot you have awesome bagels. Yep, if I were still in my child bearing years, I'm sure I'd PMS with a bagel occasionally. Buy duck fat and make duck fat french fries - you'll never go back to turd fries again. But only when you're PMSing or menstruating - everyone deserves a break now and then.
Good to meet you!
