Feat

Fast Foodless

The wonders of free market capitalism have made certain tasty-but-not-particularly-healthy food experiences exceptionally cheap and convenient. But overreliance on big, national fast food chains isn't particularly healthy, for anyone. Just ask Morgan Spurlock. To complete this feat then, you agree to go the extra half mile to find the non-Big Mac option.

OK, what exactly do we mean by fast food. Clearly, the usual suspects are off limits: McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's etc. But what about your local pizza parlor or Chipotle or the microwave hot dog at 7-Eleven? Answer: You will have to exercise some judgement. To complete this feat, you must find a way to honor each meal. The things to avoid are blatantly lazy restaurant choices, typically involving large franchising corporations, and/or otherwise featuring instant gratification with food sources that you wouldn't want to take home to Mom. Don't panic. There's alwasy another option. If you're living in New York, you might check out this Yelp page, and/or Clean Plates NYC for fast food alternatives.

Fast food? Never.

VeganDiva's picture

As I seldom eat fastfood in the first place this feels like an easy win.

Can proudly say I've never eaten anything from Mickie-D's other than their softserve vanilla ice-cream.

I cook all my meals so this was easy.

How can 25 people have completed this by October 4th?

Never eat McD's or BK or Wendy's or any of that junk... Never!

How long do you have to go without eating any type of fast food? The rest of the month, or Forever?? I will admit, I am a Personal Trainer, but still i like to indulge every once in a while. I'm HUMAN!

Got a pin from a friend a long time ago that said... Mc S*&t. That about sums it up. Grew up on this stuff for sure, but when you hear that there are 15 some odd ingredients in a McNugget... something seems a little wrong with that logic.

Completed.  Interestingly I has a 'shroom burger and cheese fries at Shake Shack last night.  Delicious.  I can't consider that as fast food.

I ate a frosty this morning because I've been craving it for WEEKS.  But today is the 1st, so I made it :)

I don't eat fast food. It always makes me feel ill.
