And some breakfast places (i know IHOP does this for sure) put PANCAKE BATTER in their scrambled eggs! I hate going out to eat now, unless it's to a steak house.

Yeah, I feel your pain. Sunday I went on this long hike to this amazing lake where we spent the whole day swimming. We stopped at dinner on the way home and I was so unbelieveably famished by the time we got there, that I ate a half a loaf of bread, a glass of champagne, and garlic fries. I NEVER eat this kind of stuff anymore but I was sooooooooo hungry that I could not say no to anything. Plus I was hiking with this HUGE raft which was really heavy so I didn't pack a lot of food. I could have brought more food and left it in the car but I didn't. Well at least I don't do this often and will plan ahead better next time.
I have figured out a perfect excuse for refusing anything - I am honestly the mother of a dairy-allergic celiac, and all I need to say is that I am doing sympathy eating (exact same foods), 'cause if I totally expect HER to eat like that, I should be able to do it as well...
Notes - I really do that IRL, and you might not have anybody closely related with the requisite serious problems. But I just thought you might be able to use the idea.
Your rant was great - we all reach that point.
I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
I wonder if "unrefined" ways of eating will become an accepted category? My workplace has vegetarians and halal folks and everyone is generally knowledgeable and accommodating toward them but when I deflect pasta or cake it still causes an audible record scratch.
