Sick! Isn't that so true? I hate fast food. Ever since "Super Size Me" I can hardly eat it.

We do McD's a lot for the kids because it's so easy - and I hate that we do - makes me cringe, but you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes. i do always get them either juice or milk to drink (they rarely ever have soda - yay mommy Val!) and I will never get anything bigger than a hamburger or grilled chicken wrap for myself. I haven't watched Super Size Me but the more I hear about it the more I want to. Sounds so very interesting!

Far be it from me to plug them, but McDonalds' pictures didn't look nearly as different from the actual food as the other chains' did. I have a friend whose mom worked as a food stylist, and apparently the food in the pictures is nothing you'd dare to eat, it has so many additional chemicals all over it!

Interesting, Katie, and doesn't surprise me, either. Actually, when I comment about how pretty the food looks on tv, Neil tells me similar things just because he knows a lot of what goes on, too, behind the scenes with commercials, ads, and so forth. I'm so glad I don't work in the food ingredient world like he does. I think I'd probably have to refuse food except for that from my garden! :)
