Overheard in line at Chipotle:
Guy #1: I'm not going to get the chips today.
Guy #2: Yeah?
Guy #3: Yeah. I realized they make me so sleepy in the afternoon. All that fat and salt - it's killing me.
Also, my response to the friend who posted "another great reason to go veg!" along with the candy-feed story was: "this just adds to the reasons I only eat pastured meats (and am willing to pay the premium for them)".... I smugly report that my response got several "likes"
I went out for a meal last night, it was somewhere reasonably priced, nothing flash. There wasn't much on the menu i could have so i chose roast chicken and ordered an extra side of 'seasonal veg'. My veg turned out to be a saucer with perhaps 3 tablespoons of PEAS....and that was it.....apparently that was the only veg they had!!! WTF! ha ha the chicken was very nice though.....
Part of the reason I hate eating out now is because I know there's nothing good I can exchange my grain/potato side for. Hooray, freezer-burned vegetables that don't taste like actual vegetables, or a fruit cup that will knock me out of ketosis. For a while I started asking for a fried egg on the side, but I can taste the rancid oil they fried it in.. And the eggs themselves taste like crap compared to the farm eggs I'm used to. So basically the only thing I want to eat at restaurants is straight-up meat. And I can eat higher-quality, cheaper, and tastier meat at home. And I can eat it with real grassfed butter, as opposed to butter-flavored industrial oil. And eggs and vegetables that actually taste like eggs and vegetables.
At this point I would actually rather just not eat than go to most restaurants. The only notable exception is indian buffet. (Yes, thank you, I WILL eat 2 whole plates of chicken tikka masala, without rice, for $8.99 flat fee!)
